Opening Soon: Panama Convention Center, Panama, Central America

You know the meetings and events industry is making a comeback when you hear news about major tradeshows taking place or cities hosting large conferences.

Panama joins in and makes industry headlines with the opening of the Panama Convention Center (PCC).

Set to begin operations in August, the country’s newest state-of-the-art facility is located on the Amador Causeway, facing the Pacific side of the Panama Canal on the west and toward Panama City to east. With about 33,000 sqm of space available, the center has the capacity to hold 23,906 attendees.

Amidst the challenges presented in the past year, PCC will be one of the pillars in the recovery of Panama’s economy. It will aid in boosting hotel occupancy, as well as the entire hospitality sector.

Four international events are scheduled to take place in the coming months, with up to 5,000 attendees. COVID-19 protocol will be in place, of course.
