Global Convention Center | Prasanthi Nilayam

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:

  1. Two Auditoria with a total seating capacity of 1000 and 300
  2. Two huge stages measuring 90 X 50 and 90 X 30 feet for presentations including concerts including orchestra and classical musical programs
  3. Ergonomic seats for the audience
  4. Two medium-sized Conference rooms of 50 seating capacity each and they can be combined for 100 participants.
  5. Centralized Air conditioner for the Entire Facility
  6. An Advanced Audio system
  7. LED screens
  8. Very aesthetic lightings and high performing light grids for use in the programs.
  9. Power backup with UPS, Generators and Inverters
  10. As a green initiative, rooftop solar power generation
  11. Soothing Water body with the Sri Sathya Sai Archives and SSSIHL administrative building in the background.
  12. A Spacious foyer and large corridors to help the smooth movement of people.
  13. A robust Fire safety system and 24-hour surveillance coverage
  14. Beautiful landscaping with garden
  15. Motifs depicting Swami's love and messages

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.
