The Conference Hall and offices will provide opportunities to generate an
income that will help subsidise the social outreach programme. In a
growing economy such facilities becomes more pressing. There is already
interest in our Conference Centre whose 450-seat auditorium fulfils a niche
between small and much larger facilities.
The Centre is just outside the Central Business District close to one of the
major roads. Austrian supermarket giant BILLA has located a few hundred
metres away and it is also close to the new Sofia Mall with Multiplex
Cinema. Rentals in this area have reached £20 per square metre. The
offices will be classed “A”, just below the best that can be rented. There will
also be secure underground parking which is very attractive in this part of
The Centre seeks to support entrepreneurialism, and will assist new
businesses by providing business advice and small ‘starter premises’. In the long term it hopes to be able to invest in new businesses to help give people from disadvantaged
backgrounds the opportunity to improve their situation.
