What I can see

It is the largest conference centre in the country and has capacity for 2,400 people. It stands out for its functionality; it has 5 rooms, which can be joined together, auxiliary spaces, parking space, modern equipment capable of translating 11 languages across 3 parallel events and a roof garden for receptions of up to 1000 people. Conferences, symposia, speeches, press conferences, corporate presentations, concerts and other events take place here.

What I can't see

The name of the conference centre comes from Ioannis Vellidis (1909-1978), who was the publisher and director of the newspaper Makedonia from 1931, as well as a reorganizer of the TIFT.
