Buenos Aires Debuts New Convention CenterWill Speros • October 5, 2017
The Buenos Aires Expo and Convention Center has debuted in the central Recoleta district of the Argentinian capital. The LEED-certified design from Edgardo Minond is outfitted with three underground levels, preserved parklands, and integrated solar panels to meet the city’s sustainability standards.
Housing more than 48,400 square feet of exhibition space, the structure accommodates up to 5,000 delegates. The main auditorium is partitioned into three separate spaces, while a second auditorium is easily halved. The convention center also hosts a gastronomic hall, kitchen, machine room, press room, storage space, administrative offices, and additional complementary spaces. The Smart City Expo World Conference inaugurated the structure, which saw more than 16,000 visitors over three days.
