Considered the Caribbean’s largest convention venue, the Puerto Rico Convention Center (PRCC) is capable of playing host to 10,000 participants in a state-of-the-art setting with world class amenities. It has an exhibition space of 152,700 square feet, 15 individual meeting rooms that can be further divided into 28 breakout rooms on two levels, and an additional meeting space of 36,200 square feet.
With services offered on-site, the PRCC has the latest technology including full-fiber optic broadband, satellite transmission, production balcony, wireless internet, programmable sound and light controls, and video conferencing. The PRCC also has a business center that provides full service, production rigging on-site, dedicated staff for light and sound, security systems, and closed-circuit TV.
THE Place for Big and Small Events
Consumer and trade shows, conventions, seminars, conferences, and workshops run seamlessly and smoothly because of the venue’s installation of advanced technology. Not to mention its signature roof line that resembles a wave and the glass “curtain” for all 13 floors that offers unparalleled views of the beaches surrounding the area including San Juan’s harbor.
As part of Puerto Rico’s new tourism direction, the Center has become increasingly popular as a premier spot for both business and entertainment. The fact that its location is only 10 minutes away from Old San Juan, the tourist area of Condado, and the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport does much for the Center’s growing reputation as the place for big and small events.
The Center is a fast developing key factor in the expansion of a new district which will eventually feature hotels, retail outlets, restaurants, promenades, fountains, park-like amenities, shopping areas, entertainment, exhibitions, and other establishments. If you think that Puerto Rico is just all sand, beaches, and other “tourist-y” attractions, think again.
The Apparel Shoe & Gift Show – an unbeatable event that brings sellers and buyers together – to be held from January 25 to 27 this year and the Expo Calidad de Vida – the opportunity that will enhance an individual’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being – are only two of the Center’s upcoming occasions.
Why Choose the Center?
The Center plays host to the Caribbean Hardware and Construction Trade Show with over 4,500 participants from the island and the rest of the Caribbean from February 22 to 27 this year. The business potential for an event such as this can only be heightened by a venue like the Puerto Rico Convention Center. Event organizers are aware that showcasing their products here will draw in more attendees.
And we know this how? If clothes make the man, as the old adage goes, the venue closes the deal in the business world. Every event hosted at the PRCC is carefully planned and impeccably implemented by highly-trained, expert professional PRCC staff and management. With the needs of event participants in mind, the Center fosters tourism development and economic growth in San Juan.
If you are scheduled to organize a worldwide convention, regional seminar or workshop, an award ceremony or even a concert, consider the PRCC as your perfect venue. Among recent excellent performances held at the Center, those by Skrilex and ZEDD on January 8 this year and Tiesto and Icon Pop in December 2014, were, to say the very least, electrifying.
