The new Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC) could be opened to the public in early 2015, according to reports.

The Peninsula understands that the construction of the project is almost complete, and is expected to be handed over to the government by the end of the year.

The DECC is located in Doha’s West Bay, will span an area of around 90,000m2, and will offer five large halls for events.

Partitions separating the halls can be removed, making way for bigger events.

It is hoped that events including vehicles, boats or heavy machinery, will take place at the venue, as the halls have been designed to include no beams.
