The Cancun Convention & Visitors Bureau is proud to announce the destination’s newest exhibition space.
With 242,000 sq. ft. of indoor surface space that can accommodate more than 15,000 guests, Lakam Center is considered one of the largest meeting venues in Latin America and the biggest in Cancun. The venue completed a six month renovation in December 2012 that included new electrical cables, updated A/C installations and remodeled bathrooms.
This exhibition center is located at the 329.5 km mark on the Cancun—Playa del Carmen Highway, a short drive from the Cancun International Airport and 15 minutes from Cancun’s famous Hotel Zone. This new space offers four modern and versatile buildings that are suitable for large conventions, congresses, sporting events, musical shows and cultural events of international importance. The facility is one of a few Cancun venues able to host large-scale, high-impact events like the upcoming Flight Center Global Gathering Conference on July 11-15.
This high-tech establishment will only add to Cancun’s already unique and extensive meetings and convention spaces that range from Cancun Center’s more than 700,000 sq. ft. of meeting space to some of the destination’s top resorts. With 145 world-class hotels, which include four AAA Five Diamond Award winning properties, Cancun can easily accommodate thousands of guests at a time with more than 34,000 hotel rooms available.
The Exhibition center offers parking for 50 trucks and more than 500 vehicles as well as an extensive area for outdoor events. This building was designed to withstand strong hurricane winds, has a sophisticated fire prevention system, private security system and more.Cancun will be hosting a number of world congresses this year that vary from the Annual Mexico Showcase and Travel Expo on April 12 to the International Congress of Developmental Biology on June 17. Cancun continues to improve its offerings year by year and has proved to be a top destination for world leaders, meetings and conventions.
