Text description provided by the architects. The Federal Government of Mexico selected FR-EE to design and construct a world-class Convention Center in Los Cabos, Mexico to host the annual G20 economic summit in 2012. The leaders of the world’s largest economies, including U.S. President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, took important steps to ensure strong, sustainable and balanced global growth at the meeting grounds of the building.

Located alongside a private golf community with views of the surrounding desert landscape to one side and the Gulf of California to the other, the 5400 m2 Los Cabos International Convention Center holds a capacity of up to 6,500 people. To accommodate a variety of uses for G-20 and future conventions, festivals and events, FR-EE’s design offers visitors areas for exhibitions and conventions, multi-modal parking, a service mezzanine and other facilities.
