MANILA, Philippines – SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) is set to open another iconic convention property, the SMX Convention Center Clark, in May 2022.
The expansion of SMHCC’s brand portfolio in Central Luzon follows the openings of Park Inn by Radisson Clark Extension in June 2021 and SMX Convention Center Olongapo in November 2020.
“These developments in North Luzon underscore SMHCC’s confidence in this bustling economic hub. According to the Board of Investments, Central Luzon was the most invested region in 2020, accounting for over 1 trillion pesos in approved investments. Clark continues to be at the forefront of all of this, with the business recovery efforts of Clark Development Corp. (CDC),” said Peggy Angeles, executive vice president of SMHCC.
SMX Convention Center Clark will be SMHCC’s second freestanding convention center after SMX Manila and another welcome addition to its seven existing convention centers and trade halls. It can accommodate multi-scale events with a gross leasable area of over 4,000 m², with event spaces on two levels and a mezzanine for offices.
Strategically built next to the Park Inn by Radisson Clark, within the growing SM City Clark complex, it will host events of all scales and sizes with its three commercial lobbies, three ballrooms and 14 smaller meeting rooms .
Located less than a 16-minute drive from the airport via the Manuel Roxas Expressway and approximately a 20-minute drive via Gil Puyat Clark East Perimeter Road, the SMX Convention Center Clark enjoys an unrivaled location and is set to become one of the main MICE sites in central Luzon. choice
