Although a few minor things are yet to be completed, but since the Fr Muller Institution Day is on 13 March, the management has decided to have the launching of this prestigious project to commemorate the Institution Day.

This Hall can be used as a Dining area along with other halls or separately to host any event with enough space to serve food.

The Centre has high capacity lifts and escalators for easy access, fully integrated audio visual and IT equipment, Wi-Fi Connectivity, emergency exits as per the best standards in the industry, Smoke detectors, fire alarm system and the well-arranged parking facility- an ample space for nearly 700 vehicles to park. The entry for this Convention Centre is from the Kankanady Pumpwell side- NH 66″ added Fr Rodrigues.

This Convention Centre located in the heart of the City will be an added boon to the Citizens of Dakshina Kannada and Mangaluru, which is going to be a “Smart City”. The Centre is available not only for socio-cultural events but also for academic events. With our increasing student population of around 3000 plus, this Centre will be ideal for college functions. The Muller family is extremely proud of this acquisition and I would like to extend a cordial welcome to all for the inauguration ceremony”.
