Plans for proposed convention centre
Plans for proposed convention centre

(qCOSTARICA) In the next three years the government will try to make inroads in the country’s convention industry, a potential market identified years ago, but has not advanced from its early stage.

The goal, according to Tourism Minister, Mauricio Ventura, is consolidate efforts to attract conventions that could in the next 3 to 4 years increase tourism revenue by 5%.

The Minister is clear that the country cannot try to penetrate the market without a covention centre, a plan that has been brewing since the Abel Pacheco administration (2002-2006).

According to the Instittuto Costarricense de Turismo (ICT) – Tourism Board –  figures show that foreign tourists generally spend about US$100 per day, while convention goers average between US$200 and US$400 per day.

The proposed National Convention Centre (Centro Nacional de Convenciones), to be located in Barreal de Heredia, on the north side of the autopista General Cañas, next to the Plaza Cariari, is a US$35 million project that will be financed in part by the ICR (US$23 million) and the balance from loans at state banks.

Ventura says the Solis government is committed to begin construction before 2018.
