“Newly expanded and it works!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

A large, modern convention center, at par with any of the large ones in major cities around the world. Efficient and clean. We visited for the Expo Ferretera (Hardware Show) at the end of August. Several hotels around the CC are convenient to avoid any traffic. Positively impressed.

“Modern Convention Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I had reason to tour the convention center and felt that it was very much on par with many of the centers I have worked in and visited around the country. The building is modern and efficiently run. There is great attention to keeping the public areas and restrooms quite clean and I found that impressive. The building is large and can host events on both levels. There is complimentary wifi in the building, which is a major plus for businesses or people needing to remain connected. Hats off to a wonderful and professional operation!

“Huge, gigantic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is such a huge and gigantic place, that very few of the larger events can actually fill it. I attended the 28 FICG, one of the largest international films festivals in the world, with more than 3000 people attending, and still, only a fraction of the space was used. The place can hold several large exhibits at once, plus music shows, meetings, etc. At least five big hotels just across the street, a five minutes walk to any of them.

“A place in itself.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I just came back from the Feria Internacional de Libro. This is a yearly event in a huge exhibition area. If it's not there, it doesn't exist in Spanish. Chile was the guest of honor this year and participated with a very nice pavilion, lots of books, interesting side activities, talks, etc.
Every editorial house is there, from the most esoteric to the most serious ones.

750,000 people in 8 days. It's the second largest book fair in the world.
