Ghana / the Venue

Ghana, on the West Coast of Africa, is one of the most thriving democracies on the continent. The country is known for its lush forests, diverse wildlife, and rich history. English is the official language.

The GEO Week and Exhibition will take place at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC). The centre has hosted major conferences, events and summits for the World Health Organization, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the Food and Agriculture Organization and other international organizations.

The conference center is located centrally and near national monuments such as Christiansborg castle, Accra Sports Stadium, Independence Square, Osu Castle, Black Star Square and the Parliament house of Ghana.

All visitors entering Ghana must have valid entry visas or entry permits issued by a Ghana diplomatic mission or consulate abroad or any other visa issuing authority mandated by the Ghana Government to act on its behalf. ECOWAS nationals and those of other countries with which the Government of Ghana has specific bilateral agreements, are exempted. For visa requiements and entry conditions, click here.
