South America is a rising star on the radar of the international conference industry. The continent’s stunning natural scenery is increasingly being matched by equally impressive conference facilities, often comparable to the best in the world.

RioCentro, Brazil

RioCentro is, as the name suggests, situated in the internationally renowned city of Rio de Janeiro. When they are not working, delegates can enjoy the famous hospitality of this city, its virtually unequaled beaches and its wide variety of food.

The convention centre is among the most sophisticated in Brazil and is capable of accommodating more delegates than any other convention centre in Latin America. What makes it particularly popular is the fact that it can host events ranging from the very small to the very large.

The centre is equipped with the most modern sound equipment and speakers are able to make use of state of the art audio-visual facilities to improve the quality of their presentations.

RioCentro can easily be reached by taxi, bus, shuttle bus or Rio’s subway system.

Our choice for the four runners-up, in no particular order, is as follows.

Iguazu Grand Resort Spa & Casino, Argentina
Its location, just ten minutes away from the world famous Iguazu Falls, is enough to ensure a steady stream of conference goers. It also provides the latest in audio-visual equipment, the accommodation is top notch and there is a spa and casino, as well as several restaurants on site.

Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel and Convention Centre, Argentina
Located in the heart of bustling Buenos Aires, which is home to the tango, great steaks and football madness, is a hotel and conference centre with the best facilities this enchanting city has to offer. It has no less than fifteen meeting rooms, with a total floor area of 6,500 m2 in which 9,000 people can be accommodated.

Los Tajibos Hotel & Convention Centre, Bolivia
This convention centre, in the heart of the Bolivian business capital Santa Cruz, has facilities for up to 3,600 people. There are 20 halls capable of accommodating events from the smallest business seminar to the largest corporate function.

Sheraton Lima Hotel & Convention Centre, Peru
This centre blends Peruvian hospitality with world-class standards of comfort. Although located in the heart of Lima, the centre is still only a 15-minute drive from Jorge Chavez International Airport. The centre can accommodate a wide array of events, from the smallest business meetings to international conferences. Dining options are varied and of a high quality, as are its guestroom options.
