Preparing for Opening of Convention Center

The administrator of the new convention center in Costa Rica plans to start operations in April, and in the next four years, it is expected that 60 congresses will be organized, which will generate US$180 million.

The new National Center for Congresses and Conventions (CNCC) located east of Plaza Cariari, on the autopista General Cañas, is 90% complete. Photo courtesy of the ICT. reports that “…The Colombian consortium, Heroica-Volio Trejos, is fine-tuning details such as the hiring of employees, the reception of the list of activities already sold by the ICT (Tourism Board) and some logistics adjustments in the building, in order to realize the opening of the National Congress and Conventions Center (Centro Nacional de Congresos y Convenciones – CNCC – in Spanish).”

“…Heroica, the Colombian partner of the consortium, manages through a concession, the Cartagena de Indias convention center in Colombia. The contract with the Colombian government was initially for 10 years, with expiration in 2020, but at the end of 2016 it was extended for another 10 years, until 2030, explained Juliana López, legal representative for the South American firm.”

The inauguration of the CNCC is scheduled for April 5.

The project, a 15,600 square meter (168,000 square foot) building sitting on 10-hectares of land, is owned by the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo (ICT) and required an investment of US$35 million dollars.
