IH Event Center is one of the newest conference venues of Szeged. It is situated directly on the bank of River Tisza, next to Hotel Novotel****, a ten-minute walk from the city centre. The fully renovated IH Event Center was re-opened in September 2008. The former Youth House has become the citizens' favourite meeting point with its varied programmes. Beside the cultural palette several professional exhibitions, business events, conferences and balls are held here. In the two-storeyed building there are three conference rooms, two smaller meeting rooms, a spacious foyer and a separable conference hall. Professional technical equipment, excellent catering and skilled staff serve the demand of the different programs. It is an ideal place for conferences with 200-300 participants
The facade shows a brand new view as it is covered by a huge glass surface on both the southern and the eastern side. The colorful light show is also the speciality of the house due to the 450 led lamps built in under the cover.
In the external appearance of the building young and modern style dominate, while warm colours and simple shapes are authoritative inside the house.
Stepping in the house we get to the lobby, where a nice café welcomes the guests. A little stage also takes place here where concerts and dance programmes are organized regularly.
On the ground floor 3 conference rooms can be found as well with a capacity of 50 (Maros), 80 (Tisza) and 100 persons (Szeged). The VIP meeting room is an ideal place for meetings of 6-8 persons.
The building is easily usable by disabled people as an elevator has been built in. The whole building is a non smoking area and air-conditioned. Smoking is allowed only on the terrace and in front of the house.
The 600 persons Great Hall is on the first floor and can be divided into two by a mobile wall. In this case 400 people can sit down. Professional soundproofing, a motor-screen, a projector and the most modern light and sound system are available to fulfill the special demand of performances, conferences. The 8x10 meter stage is excellently suitable for concerts and theatric events. The studio is the “heart and soul” of the Great Hall.
A bar supplies the catering functions on this floor as well as the serving and warming kitchen. Two artist dressing-rooms serve the comfort of the performing actors.
If a conference needs a lecture room, two or three conference rooms and some place for the exhibitors, the IH Event Center is an ideal venue up to 200-300 participants
