The Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), formerly the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, is a 28 story building located in Nairobi, Kenya. The KICC is located in the City Square of Nairobi, and a crucial address for a number of Government offices, including those of recently elected Senators. It is an intentionally renowned venue for conferences, meetings, exhibitions and special events within walking distance of several five star hotels. During its 41-year history it has been the host of several international conferences, seminars, exhibitions and summits.
The Center is ranked as one of the top places to hold conferences on the continent, a feat considering its age in comparison to shiner venues and locations throughout Africa. KICC was the tallest structure in Nairobi up until the mid 2000s when the construction of the Times Tower, the home of the Kenya Revenue Authority, was completed. The building has since then ceded its position as the tallest tower to a host of other newer projects including the UAP Old Mutual Tower, which completes construction in 2016, the KCB Pensions Tower and Hass Tower, which has just broken ground and is set to be the tallest structure on the continent.
