Ivan Raskovic, the city architect, has recently informed that the international competition for obtaining the concept design of the conference and congress hall and a high category hotel will be announced early March this year. He has additionally explained that the competition preparation, which includes the development of a relevant study, was made by the Faculty of Architecture from Belgrade and financially supported by the M:tel company.
„According to the study, two facilities are planned to be constructed. They will be located in the vicinity of the Republic of Srpska Government administration building. The area`s backbone will be a 1500-seat multi-funcional hall and some smaller halls for concerts and other events, including commercial premises and a 500-seat theater hall. Another facility, which will be located in the vicinity of the city stadium, will be a modern, 300-bed four-star hotel“, Raskovic explains.
He also said that the construction of such facilities would greatly impact the development of congress tourism as Banja Luka lacks an adequate hall for big congresses and seminars.
