The China National Convention Center, previously known as the Olympic Green Convention Center[2] (simplified Chinese: 国家会议中心; traditional Chinese: 國家會議中心; pinyin: Guójiā Huìyì Zhōngxīn) is a convention center located in the Olympic Green in Beijing. It was designed by RMJM and was originally used for the 2008 Summer Olympics. It covers an area of 270,000 square metres. It was one of the four principal buildings of the Olympic Green.

The convention center served as the competition spot for fencing, and the shooting and fencing parts of the modern pentathlon events. The International Broadcast Centre was located in this venue.
