Albuquerque Convention Center

In addition to recent renovations at the Albuquerque Convention Center, the complex is undergoing a $22 million facelift. The Albuquerque Convention Center will soon have a new look that better represents the unique architectural elements of our region.

The City of Albuquerque has selected Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, a local architecture firm, to develop a design that better reflects Albuquerque’s history, art, culture and environment.

The preliminary designs include:

  • a new exterior façade
  • complete remodeling of the ballroom
  • a new entertainment deck in the ballroom
  • massive windows with panoramic views
  • the west building lower level atrium will be completely remodeled to include a fireplace
  • complete kitchen renovation

The project will be phased to allow for ongoing convention and meeting business.
