Cancun, Q.R. — The city of Cancun has announced it will be receiving a new convention center.
Although the city currently has a convention center, the new model will be part of the hotel chain Me and is expected to be much larger.
Martín Vásquez director of Hotel Me said that it will be one of the three largest in the Mexican Caribbean.
“We already have a convention center, but the idea of this is to make a bigger convention center to have the capacity to capture and accommodate all the groups. We know that it is a very good market…we have a projection of no more than six months and we already have several contracts with groups. We are working hard for all the equipment,” he said.
Although he did not give specific details of the project, he said that they will be competing in a significant way with the current Convention Center as well as handling digital interactivity that will enhance the centers.
He says they can continue to capture the market they are already familiar with, which now includes weddings, so they are working with new and established business partners on the project. Part of the changes that will be seen in the new center include a beach club, exhibition kitchen and significant room extensions.
The current Cancun International Convention Center has been awarded seven consecutive years with the international recognition World Travel Award as Mexico & Central America’s Leading Meetings & Conference Centre.
