Here you'll find comfortable, flexible meeting space that can handle everything from intimate board meetings to large groups of up to 2,000 people, with wireless connectivity and high-speed data lines throughout the facility. The Convention Center is just a short drive away from the Santa Fe Municipal Airport and a one-hour drive from the Albuquerque Airport.
Located in the heart of the city, the Convention Center is surrounded by world-class restaurants, renowned hotels, 16 acclaimed museums and 250 art galleries.
