Over the last decade, what had started as Baku second oil boom has developed into a general blooming in a range of fields, making the city ever more attractive for all kinds of visitors whether on business or just coming to delight in a wide range of cultural and architectural attractions. As the economy diversifies, the city has been enthusiastically positioning itself as host for major sporting and cultural events and as a prime regional hub for meetings and conventions. The result is a fabulous portfolio of new, state-of-the-art hotels, restaurants and venues, some of which are within the city’s most remarkable 21st-century architectural masterpieces. Most notable are the iconic Flame Towers, the brand-new Baku Convention Center and the fabulous Heydar Aliyev Center, a Zaha Hadid designed wonder that is widely considered amongst the world’s most memorable recent constructions. Baku also has numerous other centrally located facilities, offering ideal conditions for large-scale conventions and other trade events of up to 10,000 participants as well as smaller, more exclusive meetings and conferences.
