Change in Venue for the 10th World Zoroastrian Congress
Change in Venue for the 10th World Zoroastrian Congress – From National Centre of Performing Arts (NCPA) to National Sports Club of India (NSCI)
We are pleased to inform you that the number of delegates who have registered till date has exceeded our initial expectations. Based on this, the Organising Committee has taken the decision to change the venue of the 10th World Zoroastrian Congress from the National Centre of Performing Arts (NCPA), Nariman Point to the newly inaugurated National Sports Club of India (NSCI) near Haji Ali, Worli. The NSCI is a sprawling institution located on the seafront, in the heart of South Mumbai, with turf lawns and plenty of parking facilities. Its impressive centrally air-conditioned indoor stadium with a seating capacity of up to 5,000 guests has encouraged us to change the venue, as it is considered to be more convenient for the Congress.
At the NCPA, two large auditoriums—Jamshed Bhabha Theatre and Tata Theatre—had been booked. The seating arrangements were planned on a first come, first served basis, where 900 delegates would be seated at the main Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, and the rest of the delegates would view Congress proceedings and the entertainment programmes through video conferencing in the Tata Theatre. The Organising Committee wasn’t very happy with this arrangement where delegates would be divided into two groups due to space constraints. Hence, the Organising Committee has decided to finalise NSCI ultimately.
Please make a note of this change and see you all at the Congress!
