Hotel, Conference Centre, Parking


     The name "Umodzi Park" is unobvious and not informative. If we hear "Umodzi Park", we can be thinking about an amusement park, a park with trees, anything, but not about a hotel, a conference centre and a parking lot for 2500 cars.

     Umodzi Park is a complex consisting of the hotel Walmont, a separate building BICC (Bingu wa Mutharika International Convention Centre), a large circular area between them, used as a parking lot, as well as the surrounding area with greenery.

     Umodzi Park is part of the hotel chain of the African brand Peermont, that manages hotels, resorts and casinos in South Africa and Botswana.

     Umodzi Park was opened on May 1, 2015. The opening ceremony was attended by President of Malawi His Excellency Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and other officials of Malawi.

     President Walmont Hotel is the first and so far the only five-star hotel in Malawi:

     Bingu wa Mutharika International Convention Centre includes Lilongwe Auditorium for 1500 seats, 5 conference rooms for 70 seats each, banquet rooms. BICC is used as a concert venue--here are the musicians, conferences and even collective prayers, for example, about the falling down of rain.

     BICC and the hotel connects through such a covered gallery:

     Note that using the word "Conference" instead of "Convention" when decoding the abbreviation BICC seems more justified, which causes confusion. In particular, on Google maps we can easily find BICC if we enter the wrong name "Lilongwe Bingu International Conference Centre". If we enter the correct "Lilongwe Bingu International Convention Centre", then we will not find anything.
