Everything an event planner could want or need in a destination. Down to the ziplines. It can all be found a few hours away from the mainland, yet far away from the mainstream. On a tropical island. In the Caribbean. Meet Puerto Rico – the U.S. Commonwealth that allows attendees to experience culture without the culture shock. 1.2 million square feet of state-of-the-art conference facilities. Golden beaches. Turquoise waters. Breathtaking natural attractions for team building or solitude. Championship golfing. Resort spas. Sizzling nightlife and casinos. By coordinating with the local experts at Meet Puerto Rico, MPR, planners can escape the conventional.
A CVB with OMG
For more than 50 years, the experts at MPR have been helping planners break out of the event mold without breaking the bank. MPR functions at whatever capacity a planner needs – from answering simple inquiries about weather to providing one-stop shopping for those planning meetings or group gatherings. MPR offers unbiased information about local hotels, venues, attractions and facilities and gladly acts as an onsite advocate in rate negotiations. With 250+ member-suppliers, MPR can help planners organize and promote events and meetings for groups from 10 to 10,000. There’s a venue and guest room for every budget – from sensational waterfront resorts to rustic tropical retreats.
A convention center that makes any event, eventful
MPR is proud to be the official sales and marketing agents for the Puerto Rico Convention Center Pedro Rosselló, PRCC. With magnificent marina and city views, the PRCC not only meets a planner’s requirements, it fulfills everything on a wish list, including powdery beach sand squishing between an attendee’s toes. 600,000 square feet of total meeting space makes it the largest meeting facility in the Caribbean. Flexible meeting rooms, a customizable exhibit hall, grand ballroom and al fresco dining make it a perfect destination for groups up to 10,000.
The perks of meeting in paradise
Attendees can take advantage of more than 270 miles of beach – from picturesque family spots to surfing havens. Sport-fishing charters, snorkeling, championship golf and resort spas are plentiful. The same can be said for historic landmarks in Old San Juan and ziplines across lush rainforests. With hundreds of non-stop flights daily, an average temperature of 82º F, and more than 14,000 guest rooms to choose from, there’s only one drawback to meeting in Puerto Rico – eventually, it’s time to go home.
