Playing host to dozens of conference and fairs a year, the Jerusalem International Convention Center (ICC) - better known by its former name, Binyanei Ha’uma - is the largest of its kind in the country. The building, erected in 1956 not far from the government complex on Givat Ram, plays host to a variety of conventions, seminars, exhibitions, and cultural events, and houses a movie theater.

The center is a total of 12,000 square meters spread over 10 spaces on two levels which can accommodate between 40 and 10,000 participants.

The building’s huge Ussishkin Auditorium - the largest in Israel with over 3,000 seats - has been the venue for events as diverse as the Eurovision song contest (twice) and the trial of Nazi war criminal Ivan Demjanjuk. It is also the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra home away from home in Jerusalem and hosts many of the higher-profile Israel Festival performances. Binyanei Ha’uma is also the place where the Globus movie theater (amazingly, one of only two multiplexes in Jerusalem) relocation, after its space in the Malha Mall was converted into the H&M clothing store.

Among other things, the center offers professional stage services, design services, catering services, security, stewardship, WiFi and a professional team of events managers.

The ICC is located at the entrance to the city, right across the street from the Central Bus Station, and around the corner from the towering Crowne Plaza Hotel. The Center offers 850 parking spaces, making it a convenient choice for any event.
