The Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau recently announced the grand opening of the Los Cabos Convention Center. Los Cabos is located at the tip of the 1,000-mile long Baja Peninsula in Mexico.
The facility offers 72,000 square feet of functional space and a capacity to accommodate up to 5,000 attendees for meetings and 3,000 individuals for banquets.
“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.”
Most recently, the Los Cabos Convention Center hosted the world’s leaders during the G20 Summit in June during its soft opening. The center will also play host to the first annual Baja International Film Festival this coming fall.
The convention center represents a $100 million investment by the federal government and a $1.5 million investment from the State of Baja California Sur. The center was also made possible by an endowment of 15-acres by the municipality of Los Cabos.
The convention center includes a spacious lobby, three exhibition areas, seven exhibit halls, a business center, a service area, a loading area, 567 parking spaces and outdoor garden areas.
Equipped with solar panels and environmental technology, the Los Cabos Convention Center was designed with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind. It has the largest green wall in the world, which serves as an insulator and prevents the building from overheating in the warm summer months.
It is located 10 minutes away from Los Cabos International Airport and five minutes away from the major tourism zone and hotels.
