As part of Mayor Richard J. Berry's overall plan to reinvest in the future of our city, a ribbon cutting for the $23 million renovation to the Albuquerque Convention Center was held on October 23, 2014.
The ribbon cutting unveiled the first phase of a larger $55 million plan and includes dramatic changes to the front face of the building as well as modern upgrades to the building built in 1972.
In addition to the Albuquerque Convention Center upgrades, the city offers more than $300 million in recent hospitality investments.
The Albuquerque Convention Center launched a 360° Virtual Tour of New Mexico's largest meeting facility. The virtual tour lets visitors feel like they've stepped inside the Kiva Auditorium, exhibit halls, ballroom and other meeting space, online.
