The Chennai Trade Centre is set up at a prime location in the Chennai metro at Nandambakkam, adjacent to St. Thomas Mount in an area of over 25 acres of land with four modules of 4,400 sq. metres each of exhibition halls and support services to be built in a phased manner. In the first phase, two halls - Hall 1 (4,400 sq. mtrs.) and Hall 2 ; (1,716 sq. mtrs.) have been set up with six metres height to display all merchandise, including machinery. The Trade Centre is architecturally and technically designed to be a "state-of-the-art" Exhibition Complex. The air-conditioned halls have no pillars or columns, are thus eminently suitable for multi-purpose use of organising exhibitions, conferences, conventions and conducting other trade, commerce and industry-related events.
