By the Grace of Bhagawan, Global Convention Center is coming up in a very beautiful way at Prasanthi Nilayam. Sri Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSSIO) had proposed having such a facility in the Ashram which will be convenient for overseas devotees for conducting the programs. Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust (SSSCT), being committed to make available this facility for use of all the devotees, had embarked on planning and construction. Few officers were sent to different locations to see the auditoriums and learn the requirements. By Swami’s grace, on 30th October 2018, the Groundbreaking Ceremony was held. The SSSCT members and SSSIO senior office bearers met wherein the utilisation of this facility was discussed and it was agreed that SSSIO will conduct at least 90 programs in one calendar year in the new upcoming facility. We pray to Swami to bless this intention and may all brothers and sisters can join to conduct and participate in conferences, meetings, seminars and any other programs and make the best use of this Gift from Swami.
The convention center building has a total built-up area of about 56,500 sq ft. There are two auditoriums in the complex, one with a seating capacity of 1000 and another with a seating capacity of 300. Additionally, there are two conference halls, where smaller groups can have their meetings.
Some of the key aspects that have been considered are:
The construction started at a quick pace immediately after the Bhoomi Puja.
Here are a few pictures of the building and glimpses of building construction in different stages.https://www.facebook.com/55153101118/posts/10159188542636119/
