A giant exhibition center overlooking the Gulf of Tokin will be inaugurated in northern Vietnam’s Quang Ninh Province next week, the provincial administration announced Thursday.

The Quang Ninh Exhibition of Planning and Expo Center, built in just 19 months and featuring 21,000 square meters of floor space, cost VND1.15 trillion (US$51.34 million).

Located on Tran Quoc Nghien Street in the province’s Ha Long City, the complex consists of two separate buildings connected by a system of elevators, escalators, and stairs.

The first building is designed to resemble a species of pearl-making shelled mollusk found abundantly in local waters, and will be used to showcase regional planning models and host events, exhibitions, and expos. 

A second, dolphin-shaped building is reserved for the exhibition of public projects and signature architectural and religious structures in the province.

The exhibition complex will be a venue for significant cultural and social activities in the province and highlight its economic achievements, its developers said.

The center will connect to nearby public spaces such as the October 30 Square, a museum, a library, a children’s playground, and Lan Be Park to form a coherent network between the tourist sites.

The inauguration ceremony for the complex will be held on January 18, according to the Quang Ninh administration.
