this venue is very suitable for big events, and the location adds to the beauty a lot.. the sea by day and by night offers an amazing setting to the event.

It's not far from Hamra street .. Just 15 min by car Attented Avicii's concert in Beirut in BIEL .. the place was very well equipped for the concert .. the entrance was not very well organized but the distribution of the different tickets' categories in the concert hall and the entrance was pretty good

This place can easily be one of the best venues in the middle east to house parties and events. We went for avicii there and there was only one toilet on the corner were we needed to walk 15 minutes and wait for another 10 to get the job done. Seriously this is so wrong!

Probably one of the best expo areas around the Middle East. Open all year round with different activities and displays as well as conference centers.

One of the largest spaces in Beirut for exhibits concerts and other events. Despite being newly built and designed to accommodate large numbers of people the road to BIEL is usually extremely jammed and poorly planned to accommodate large number of cars. Always always come ahead of time because only if you are extremely lucky you'll park you car and... More

This exhibition center is in a small peninsula surrounding by the sea! The best view for an exhibition center. It is quite big and very modern... during the winther it is little cold inside.

Like everything else in Lebanon, BIEL is not finished. The exhibition center is OK but getting there is a nightmare. The parking and traffic control is adventurous and not very logical. Inside, it was warm. I don't want to know how it is in the summer.
