Los Cabos Convention Center Opens in Mexico

A new convention center has opened in Los Cabos, Mexico, the Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau announced today. It's hoped that the facility — which offers 72,000 square feet of functional space — will attract more large-scale international meetings and events to Mexico.

Located 10 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport and five minutes from the city's major tourism zone and hotels, the Los Cabos Convention Center can accommodate up to 5,000 people for meetings and up to 3,000 people for banquets. Key elements include a lobby, three exhibition areas, seven exhibit halls, a business center, a mezzanine, a service area, a loading area and several outdoor garden areas, not to mention many "green" features — including solar panels and the largest green wall in the world, which serves as an insulator and prevents the building from overheating in the summer.

"We are thrilled that the destination of Los Cabos is now home to a state-of-the-art convention center," said Alberto Coppola, president of the Los Cabos Hotel Association. "The new center, in combination with our current roster of award-winning hotels, will help Los Cabos become Mexico's leading destination for large meetings and conventions."
