Newsroompanama.com says it will be the first  “green” convention in Central America with a capacity of 2,000 people and provide a major boost to the local economy.

Thevisitorpanama.com reports construction works began with the breaking of the ground on Monday, August 7. The building will be located on a 4 hectare lot located in the area of El Frances, donated by the entrepreneur Ricardo Perez and will have an approximate cost of US$12 million.

The impact of even a small convention center on Boquete would be big. Boquete is a well-established major tourist destination. This makes it a favorite of those seeking to blend a quality lifestyle with tourism based business opportunities.

Located in Panama’s coffee-growing highlands, Boquete is halfway between David International Airport on the Pacific Coast, and the Bocas del Toro beaches on the Caribbean.
