Costa Rica Welcomes Convention Tourism After Opening National Convention Center
Although, The Costa Rica Convention Center was scheduled to open doors in May 2018, on April 5th, Costa Rica inaugurated this great new facility, located in the province of Heredia. The country’s first ever conventions center is 15.600 square meters on a 10-hectare lot and has capacity for 6.571 delegates.
Costa Rica invested US$35 million to build this top notch facility with the purpose of attracting a different type of tourism: business or convention tourism, which is an $11 million industry. The Costa Rica Convention Center is strategically located just 8kms from Juan Santamaría International Airport and 10kms from downtown San José, and there are a total of 4.578 hotel rooms available in a 7kms (6.4 mile) radius.
Some of the top features of the new building are its bioclimatic, environmental and sustainable design and architecture, naturally lit interior spaces complemented with internal and external LED lighting and water heating systems with solar panels. A truly energy-efficient work of art that features a restaurant, a business center, a press center and external parking for 1.000 vehicles, 40 buses and 80 minibuses. The national conventions center has a total of 14 conference and meeting rooms, some of which have movable walls to accommodate larger crowds.
It’s been estimated that Costa Rica will hold 81 international congresses between 2017 and 2021, and many of those will be held in this great new conventions center.
