Business and Meetings in Los Cabos
Business and pleasure combine seamlessly at Los Cabos’ state-of-the-art facilities when work calls. Any business meeting, annual retreat or corporate gathering can feel completely otherworldly when it takes place in such a beautiful, vibrant destination. There are very few destinations around the world where an outdoor seminar can get interrupted by a pod of breaching whales. Convention space in Los Cabos is among the most modern and expansive you can find — just ask the presidents, heads of state and other dignitaries who made this their location of choice for the 2012 G20 Summit. Meetings and conventions — regardless of size or caliber — are handled masterfully, with top-tier hospitality and seamless logistics. And that’s just the beginning — consider the miles of golf courses and desert trails or the innumerable possibilities for outdoor adventures and top-tier dining and nightlife options offered by Los Cabos itself. The result, of course, is that you and your fellow conventioneers have countless possibilities for work and play. Among the top spaces for events here is the Los Cabos Convention Center, a state-of-the-art facility with 72,000 square feet of space that is minutes away from the many hotels in the area ( under remodeling ). The convention center is lauded for its environmentally sustainable features, including a series of green walls that prevent the building from overheating and more than 1,000 solar panels. The facility also features a full service business center — there to address any need that may come up — and a terrace overlooking the Sea of Cortez.
Of course, most hotels and resorts in Los Cabos are equipped to host groups of all sizes. Thompson Hotels has made its debut in Cabo San Lucas with The Cape, featuring ocean views from all rooms that also come with binoculars for whale watching. Its enticing location makes it a perfect choice for groups, as do its four meeting spaces. Go al fresco with sweeping vistas and banquet seating for 180 or keep it chic and intimate in a glass-enclosed cube, designed by Javier Sanchez, that fits up to 45 and includes removable monitors. Just outside San Jose del Cabo, Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos features handsomely appointed suites with private balconies and 35,000 square feet of meeting space. This beachfront resort devotes the greatest amount of space for conventions, meetings and events in the area. Flexible facilities — the Grand Theater and Gran Peninsula Ballroom are easily divided into more than a dozen breakout rooms — an idyllic location and the expertise of professional event planners prime every event at this property for success. Also with ample space and a roster of thoughtful services, the Barceló Grand Faro Los Cabos and Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabos Golf & Spa are also well equipped to host large events. The region is also home to companies that can assist with event planning every step of the way, including the full-service Corporate Travel Alliance, Terramar and Transcabo Meetings & Incentives.
