Established in 1940, The Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) is the oldest Chamber in the State of Gujarat and is the only Chamber of Commerce which boasts of a Convention Centre.
To keep pace with the changing economic scenario, a need was felt to build a world class Convention Centre in Surat, which could provide a platform to organise exhibitions, trade shows, buyer - seller meets and seminars. The Surat International Exhibition and Convention Centre (SIECC) was initiated to address this need.
The Government of Gujarat allotted 1,20,000 square meters of land to develop SIECC at Sarsana, Surat.
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, has allotted a grant under the Industrial Infrastructure Upgradation Scheme (IIUS) to develop such a facility on a scale that will be appropriate for an all new and modern metropolis which will be implemented by SPV Sar Infracon Pvt. Ltd.
SIECC is the pride of India. It is a state of the art Convention Centre equipped with all modern amenities.
