Puerto Rico Convention Center is the largest convention 
facility in the Caribbean

Puerto Rico has the most meeting space in the Caribbean and venues 
range from intimate boardrooms for small groups to the largest ballroom in 
the Caribbean.

Along with hotels offering top notch service for meetings, Puerto Rico is proud of the visually stunning 580,000 sq. ft. Puerto Rico Convention Center, notable for its striking curved-roof structure that embodies its Caribbean Sea location, and having the largest Grand Ballroom in the Caribbean and Latin America, measuring 39,000 sq. ft.

At the Convention Center, groups of up to 10,000 delegates can enjoy a high-tech, high-touch experience. The Center features 152,700 square feet of exhibit hall space, divisible into three individual exposition spaces, nestled below 15 meeting rooms on the second and third levels, which are divisible into 28 breakout rooms. Eight columns on a 90-foot-by-90-foot grid support the steel structure above the exhibit floor. Its ballroom is perched at the third floor beneath a soaring, exposed roof structure. The Center has hosted more than 1,500 events and has welcomed more than 1.5 million delegates.

Prominent pre-function space and lobbies provide dramatic backdrops for 
any event. Arriving conventioneers must first pass through the landscaped outdoor plaza, covered by the soaring arched-high roof, particularly spectacular at night when lit up.

Entering guests encounter a spectacular 130-foot-tall lobby space that is fronted by a full-height curtain wall. Views continue to improve as guests ascend the escalators to the meeting rooms and ballroom. A contiguous outdoor patio beneath the high roof offers panoramic views of San Juan, the cruise ship district, and the nearby beaches and surf that inspired the building form.

Part of an ambitious waterfront development initiative, the Puerto Rico Convention Center District is comprised of beautiful promenades and walkways, surrounded by fountains and views of San Juan Harbor and 
the Atlantic Ocean; and popular restaurants.
