Montego Bay Convention Centre opened its doors in 2011 as the perfect venue for conventions, trade shows, banquets and theater-style conferences. The centre was built as a response to a growing need for meeting and convention facilities on the Island of Jamaica. The centre was constructed by the Government of Jamaica in conjunction with the Chinese Development Bank.
Soaring ceilings add volume to the 55,725 square feet of contiguous exhibit space, which accommodates general session setups and up to 260 exhibit booths. This space may be sectioned into two halls with separate loading entrances for simultaneous shows. Loading docks and direct drive-in access to each hall makes setup easy and efficient. Each section is equipped with its own concessionaire stand as well as floor bays for provision of power, data lines, water. Additionally, each section of the hall has attached office spaces for the meeting planners and internet kiosks for fast private browsing.
