Last month, the Buenos Aires Expo and Convention Center opened in Recoleta, a centralized neighborhood that gives attendees access to popular museums and attractions in Argentina’s capital city.
The LEED-certified center is uniquely comprised of three underground levels, allowing for preservation of landscaped parks and integrated solar panels above. The main auditorium can be divided into three parts, while the second auditorium, into two parts. In total, the center boasts more than 48,400 sf of exhibit space and can accommodate up to 5,000 attendees.
Meeting planners will appreciate such convention center highlights as the gastronomic hall, press room, separate access for vendors/suppliers, and other complementary spaces to support diverse event activities. Numerous parking spaces, bus lines and an underground rail station also make it easy to get around, ensuring it is one of the most accessible and integrated convention centers the city has to offer.
The convention center officially made its debut with the Smart City Expo World Conference, held Sept. 28 to 30. This attracted more than 100 global companies to the destination, with more than 16,000 delegates in attendance.
In between meetings, the city of Buenos Aires offers groups a unique blend of European elegance and Latin American zeal, and there is no shortage of theater, art, world-class opera, European-style architecture, native traditions and top-tier restaurants. Last but certainly not least, Buenos Aires is famous for being the birthplace of tango, so don’t forget to pack a comfortable pair of dancing shoes.
