World Choir Games Center
Duke Energy Convention Center is located in the business district of downtown Cincinnati and it will be operation headquarters for the World Choir Games 2012. Newly remodeled and expanded in 2006, the convention center is a versatile space that can accommodate everything from a small meeting or intimate gathering to a large national convention.
The building is comprised of three floors. The first floor holds three exhibit halls, which will be used to house the cafeteria for the WCG participants and the official Choir Lounge, a fun, interactive space to give the choirs an opportunity to relax and unwind during the down time of their day. In addition, just outside the exhibit halls, at the main entrance, will be the World Choir Games Superstore, the place to shop for official WCG merchandise.
The second floor contains 30 individual meeting rooms, which will be the offices for INTERKULTUR and the Cincinnati Organizing Committee, the media center, rehearsal rooms and seminars. Choir registration will take place on this level. The building’s two ballrooms, Grand and Junior, are located on the third floor and will provide additional rehearsal and seminar rooms.
