The Puerto Rico Convention Center Pedro Rosselló

On a tropical island. In the Caribbean. That’s what attendees remember. They attended a fantastic event. In paradise. State-of-the-art infrastructure and technology. Five hundred years of Spanish colonial history, cobblestones and architecture. Breathtaking natural attractions for team building or solitude. Championship golfing. Resort spas. 1.2 million square feet of state-of-the-art conference facilities. Sizzling nightlife and casinos. Amazing music and rum. Hundreds of non-stop, domestic flights daily from the U.S. mainland, as well as the same currency and official language. Culinary delights. And abundant sunshine and ocean breezes. Paradise.

The convention center that makes any event, eventful. With magnificent city and marina views, the Puerto Rico Convention Center Pedro Rosselló (PRCC) not only meets a planner’s requirements—it fulfills everything on their wish list, down to powdery beach sand squishing between their toes. 600,000 sf of total meeting space makes the PRCC the largest and most technologically advanced meeting facility in the Caribbean. Flexible meeting rooms, a customizable exhibit hall, a grand ballroom and al fresco dining make the PRCC a perfect destination for groups up to 10,000.

There’s a pillow for everyone and every budget. From sensational waterfront resorts to rustic tropical retreats, Puerto Rico has no shortage of accommodation where groups and guests can make themselves at home. There are more than 14,000 guest rooms across the island, from top-name hoteliers such as Hilton, Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Reserve (the second in the world, first in the Americas), plus an LEED-certified, 503-guest room Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino (the first in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean). Meeting planners will find everything they could possibly want or need for successful meetings and incentive groups, conventions, trade shows and exhibitions. And attendees will leave with a smile on their face. As well as a healthy glow.

In paradise, it’s easy to break out of the breakout room. Puerto Rico offers more than 270 miles of beach—from picturesque family spots to surfing havens; from black, magnetic sand to pristine resort-front properties. Eco-adventures, watersports and activities are everywhere. The challenge is choosing. Will it be sport-fishing charters, snorkeling, championship golf courses or a resort spa? Perhaps exploring historic fortresses throughout Old San Juan? Delegates can also get a taste of lady luck at a casino or rum at the Bacardí Rum Factory. And for thrill seekers, there’s zip-lining in four different forests.
