With 72,000 square feet of meeting and exhibition space, the new Los Cabos Convention Center in June hosted world leaders, including U.S. President Barack Obama, at the G20 Summit. Later this fall, the center hosts the first Baja International Film Festival.
Long known as an incentive and leisure travel destination, Los Cabos, with the new center, has set about attracting large-scale meetings and events. The center can accommodate 5,000 attendees (and banquets for 3,000 guests).
The $1.6 million center includes a lobby, three exhibition areas, seven exhibit halls, business center, mezzanine, service area, loading area, 567 parking spaces, and outdoor garden areas.
Equipped with solar panels and other environmentally friendly technology, the Los Cabos Convention Center was designed with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind. Its “green wall” serves as an insulator and prevents the building from overheating in the warm summer months.
“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.”
The Los Cabos Convention Center is 10 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport and five minutes from the major tourism zone and hotels.
