The projects manager of the Dome at the Accra International Conference Centre, Fennec Okyere, has stated that the entertainment facility will be closed down to pave way for renovation.

“Management is not folding up the place forever. For some time now, we have been trying to find a way to close down the place so we can carry out some reconstruction works and rearrange chairs to accommodate more people since it has been the plea of all the event organizers in Ghana,” Mr Okyere confirmed.

The reconstruction will factor in things like new sitting arrangements, inbuilt sound, better lighting systems, and modern screens among others, to meet the modern standards of an entertainment facility.

The shutdown will last throughout the year but the projects manager assured all Ghanaians that the place would be ready in time to host all the December shows.

Over the weekend, the Dome was the venue for the funeral of the late David Lamptey, one of the major financiers of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“The funeral of the late David Lamptey was the last event to be held there.

We will shut down right after the funeral and carry out the repair works till we are ready for December shows.
We met all those who requested booking for the place early this year and we agreed that for their interest and their own future comfortability with the venue, they have all agreed to come along with as in our preparation,” Mr Okyere noted.

It was a tough decision since the venue over the years had been the first port of call for all event organizers in Ghana.
