THE new Denarau Island Convention Center has opened its doors, ready to host major international events.

The new complex was officially opened on Wednesday night.

Area general manager Fiji and Samoa Shane Cunning said the centre was the largest event space on Denarau Island with an investment of $3.5million and six months construction.

"The key attribute will be Denarau Island having a venue with the capacity to host large local, regional and international gatherings such as conferences, seminars, symposiums, meetings and events enabling a greater scope of events that will benefit Denarau Island and Fiji as a whole," Mr Cunning said.

"With a capacity of 1500 seated guests, we will aim to attract larger conventions and exhibitions to Fiji from around the world."
