100 Convention Drive
San Juan, Puerto Rico 00907
The Puerto Rico Convention Center is the largest in the Caribbean and the most technologically advanced throughout both the Caribbean and Latin America. Boasting 580,000 square feet of total space, the Center can accommodate groups of up to 10,000, in an ideal setting at the gateway to all the Island has to offer.
The Puerto Rico Convention Center (PRCC) has been developed to fulfill the needs of the convention and meetings arena and to establish Puerto Rico as an important player in this growing industry. A dream conceived more than 10 years ago, the new Puerto Rico Convention Center is now located in the heart of San Juan in the Peninsula of Isla Grande next to Miramar, Condado, and Old San Juan. Today, this modern and cutting edge Convention Center will be the drawing force for a new era of economic and tourism development in Puerto Rico.
Considered an architectural celebration of Puerto Rico’s many distinctive natural attributes, design architects for the PRCC have aimed to construct a facility that provides delegates with the distinctively “techno-tropic,” yet natural feel of the Island. This has been largely achieved by incorporating water and ocean imagery throughout the facility and infusing the colors and textures of Puerto Rico’s flora and fauna in the interior spaces. In addition, architects took full advantage of the Island’s solar orientation by designing a grand outdoor pre-function space offering panoramic views extending from Old San Juan to the beaches and ocean beyond the Condado hotel and tourist district.
The Puerto Rico Convention Center is doing its part to further the green movement by maintaining a clean environment, researching new methods to achieve sustainability, and promoting environmentally friendly practices. The facility has implemented an extensive recycling program, energy, and water conservation, and several other green initiatives that benefit its clients, employees, visitors, suppliers, community, and the world.
Key elements of the “greening” of the Puerto Rico Convention Center include:
