Monterrey: Mexico’s Convention CapitalBy Fernanda Duque Hernández
The most important business meeting destination in the country
Recently, the city of Monterrey – in the Mexican state of Nuevo León – celebrated the construction of a new Kia Motors plant, which is set to begin operations in the first semester of 2016. Now, at the 40th edition of the Tianguis Turístico de Mexico, the CEO of the Monterrey Conventions and Visitors Bureau (OVC), Federico Treviño, has informed México News Network that Monterrey soon will be renovating major elements of its touristic infrastructure.
The first of these projects will take place in April, with the completion of the first stage of Pabellón M, a 47 floor building that seeks to revolutionize convention centers across the country with cutting edge technology. Inside this mega structure there are plans for a sky bar to be built on the highest part of the tower. The project will also include a hotel and a heliport. It is projected to be one of Monterrey’s and Latin America’s tallest buildings.
On the other hand, Cintermex, one of the most iconic venues in northern Mexico, is going to expand its 14 thousand m2 exhibition area by 10 more square meters.
Connectivity has always been the key to a city’s success and Monterrey International Airport (MTY) has flights from some of the world’s most important destinations, including: New York, Miami, different cities in Japan and more. In fact, the city is host to one of Mexico’s most important airlines, Aeromexico.
Along with the venues and connectivity, Monterrey is increasing its rooming capacity. By the end of this year the city’s hotels will collectively have one thousand more rooms, in hopes of raising the position of the city as a leading destination of Mexico.
