Located at the lowest point on earth lies one of the greatest business and meetings venue in the Middle East. King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre managed by Hilton (KHBTCC) [named after the late king of Jordan; King Hussein Bin Talal (1952-1999)] nestles on the eastern shores of the Dead Sea at the heart of the Jordan Valley offering its guests undisputed levels of business convention professionalism.

Managed by the global hospitality leader Hilton Worldwide, KHBTCC opened in 2005 and quickly established itself as the business destination of choice, not just for major international organizations but also for many locally and regionally based companies.

The three-story centre comfortably hosts over 3000 guests and boasts 27 conference halls, lounges, foyers, and several outdoor terraces on 24,000 square meters of floor space. It is ideally located at a convenient 65 kilometer drive from Queen Alia International Airport, a 45 kilometer drive from the capital Amman and is near to many historical tourist attractions such as Petra, Jerash and Madaba.

The spectacular setting, the magnificence of the building, state of the art facilities and superior customer service has led KHBTCC to host some of the biggest events and conferences in the region such as the World Economic Forum, the Arab House of Parliaments, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations among many others.

The KHBTCC can accommodate approximately 4,000 people. The center hosted a 2007 regional meeting of the World Economic Forum and meetings of the International Monetary Fund.
