Manila-headquartered SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) will be adding the SMX Convention Center Clark to its portfolio this coming May.
SMX Convention Center Clark will be SMHCC’s second standalone convention centre after SMX Manila. The venue will be able to hold multi-scale events with a gross leasable space of more than 4,000m2, comprising event venues spread over two storeys and a mezzanine floor for offices. Function spaces include three trade halls, three function rooms, and 14 smaller meeting rooms.
SMX Convention Center Clark is built adjacent to Park Inn by Radisson Clark, and a 20-minute drive to Clark International Airport.
“These developments in Northern Luzon underline SMHCC’s confidence in this bustling economic hub. According to the Philippine Board of Investments, Central Luzon was the most invested region in 2020, amounting to over Php1 trillion (US$19.1 billion) worth of approved investments. Clark continues to be at the forefront of all these, with Clark Development Corporation’s business recovery efforts,” said Peggy E. Angeles, SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. executive vice president.
SMHCC is currently the Philippines’ largest MICE operator with seven convention centres and nine hotels.
