The Costa Rica Convention Centre (CRCC) is a futuristic and sustainable space located just six miles away from the capital city of San José and five miles from Juan Santamaría International Airport.
It is the country’s first purpose-built convention centre and aims to position Costa Rica as a serious player in the international events market.
With an investment worth $35 million (£24m), The CRCC features a main hall (divisible into three sections); six conference rooms; six meeting rooms; large foyers and pre-event areas; a business centre and a VIP lounge.
The CRCC features bioclimatic, environmental and sustainable design and architecture – including a hectare of roof solar panels, water treatment plants, energy-efficient air conditioning, internal and external LED lighting and naturally lit interior spaces with native trees.
"The new convention centre is what we needed to help us put the country firmly on the map of the international association events market, where success relies on the quality of the facilities and services offered," said Mauricio Ventura, Costa Rica’s minister of tourism.
