In this post, I’ve put together a list of ten of the best event centres in Ibadan with prices, for those who need a venue for hosting a social function anytime soon.
Come rain, shine, recession, or everything all at once, nothing can separate Ibadan people (all Nigerians, if we’re being honest), and their love for social events. Whether it’s the weekend for the “owanbes’ and corporate dinners or weekdays for the seminars and work conferences, something is just always happening in the city of brown roofs. It goes without saying, that for every occassion, there must be a venue.
Below are the top 10 events centres in Ibadan with prices as at 8 October 2022:
ICC encompasses five different halls, with sitting capacities ranging from 300-5000 guests depending on the hall. It is located at the University of Ibadan (UI) second gate, along Samonda road. The main auditorium with a 5000 sitting capacity is put up for a sum of one million naira per day. The other halls can be gotten at a minimum of 400,000 naira. Constant power supply and a tight air conditioning system are also guaranteed.
With the carefully thought out, and well laid out structure, ICC boasts a parking lot, with a capacity of about 700 cars, an added advantage over many other halls out there. For your concerts, large receptions, conferences, and the likes, ICC is a very ideal choice you should consider.

3. Pentonrise Event Centre
Pentonrise Event Centre is strategically located opposite Oyo state Housing corporation. It has been around for a very very long time. But don’t let that scare you, the structure and facilities are still as modern as ever. There are three halls to choose from depending on your budget and event type, and outdoor space with toys to meet children’s needs.
Alongside, there’s also a rooftop bar and a go-kart arena within the premises. Depending on the size of an event, the parking space is on the small side, however, provision is often made for parking on a field just across the road.
4. Emeritus Professor Theophilus Oladipo Ogunlesi Multi-purpose Hall
A bit of a mouth full, but Ogunlesi Multipurpose Hall certainly lives up to its name. It is located in a serene environment right opposite University College Hospital (UCH) main gate. The fully air-conditioned hall is very large and spacious, with an elevated stage so you can see what’s going on clearly. It can sit over 2000 guests without having to shove anyone aside.
The parking space is more than enough, even if one person decides to bring two cars (kidding). However, the hall is a far walk from the gate, so a little weight might be lost in the process, but if you’re in a vehicle, then all is fine. For further details, please visit the University College Hospital, UCH.
5. Jogor Centre
Jogor Centre is one of the best event centres in ibadan. It is located at no. 1, Harvester Drive, off Liberty Road. With about 6 different halls to choose from, Jogor Centre can accommodate your birthday, weddings, seminars, conferences, and even concert needs.

The parking space can conveniently park about 500 cars, with security guards available on the premises. For bookings and enquires, call 0912 468 1211.
