Exhibitions

Exhibitions

Marine Messe is a spacious venue that provides the optimal environment for large-scale exhibits, from yauchts and cruisers to automobiles. Furthermore, passageways between exhibition spaces on the 1st and 2nd Floors are ensured through the use of temporary stairs. Promenades boasting views of Hakata Bay and Seaside Mall can also be used as part of exhibition halls. In addition, we have taken great care to put in place user-friendly facilities, such as by laying city gas pipes through to the walls of the Multi-purpose Exhibition Hall.

Marine Messe’s high ceilings facilitate a range of sports that require height, such as volleyball, rhythmic sports gymnastics and tennis. By incorporating the Center Stage, it can also be used as a venue for boxing and wrestling. Athletic events are also catered for. For instance, there is enough space to accommodate a 200m track (6 courses), with the potential for 100m straight lines. Marine Messe also comes equipped with a large video screen (7.2m×4.5m) and electronic screen (8.6m×4m). The 3rd Floor also has a sub-arena (851m2).

Hall

Hall

The center of the main stage is equipped with a partitionable elevating stage (5 partitions measuring 18.2m×14.5m). Different combinations of retractable, rising and temporary seating allow for a range of seating arrangements to suit the occasion, from theater style to fully flat seats. In addition, grapevine trellises have been installed on two walls to secure a large-capacity power source and hang lighting equipment and other devices. Reverberation time within the hall is 2-3 seconds. The hall is therefore not only large but also boasts superlative acoustics.

Facilities such as dressing rooms, battens and elevating stages
Combined use of fixed seating, retractable seating and temporary seating makes it possible to accommodate a maximum of 15,000 people. (Note: Concert capacity is between 11,000 and 13,000 people depending on the stage configuration.)

Waiting Rooms are also provided, which can be used for business talks and as VIP rooms. This is an authentic convention space that can also accommodate post-conference receptions.
