SM Hotels and Conventions (SMHCC) has announced that it has launched two major projects in Clark, Pampanga – the construction of SMX Convention Center Clark, and the expansion of Park Inn by Radisson Clark with 100 additional rooms.
Both projects are scheduled to open in 1Q2020.
SMX Convention Center’s vice president and general manager Walid Wafik said in a statement: “The SMX Convention Center Clark will cater to the increasing demand for more venues for MICE events being held in the Northern Luzon area. Instead of the clients travelling all the way from Northern Luzon to Manila to hold their big conventions and other events, we are bringing SMX Convention Center closer to them”.
SMX Convention Center Clark will have a gross leasable space of more than 4,000m2 over two levels, and a mezzanine floor for offices. To be constructed adjacent to the Park Inn by Radisson Clark extension, the convention centre will feature three trade halls, three function rooms, complemented by 14 smaller meeting rooms.
Similar to its flagship property in Manila, SMX Convention Center Clark will have eco-friendly features. A connecting bridgeway from the SM City Clark will easy access to and from the SMX Convention Center Clark, and the Park Inn by Radisson Clark.
SMX Convention Center Clark will be the second standalone convention center – after SMX Manila – and the eighth convention center in the SMHCC portfolio.
Meanwhile, Park Inn by Radisson Clark is also set to add another 100 rooms to its current inventory of 150 rooms.
Both SMX Clark and Park Inn by Radisson Clark will be situated a 20-minute drive from the airport via Manuel Roxas highway.
