The Albuquerque Convention Center (ACC), located in the center of the city’s downtown, is New Mexico’s premier meeting venue. In addition to 27 versatile meeting rooms, the facility features 167,562 total square feet of exhibit space, a 31,000-square-foot ballroom, and a state-of-the-art 2,350-seat auditorium. A broad range of vendor services also is available to support events held at the center, including audiovisual support, sound and lighting, security, and high-speed and wireless internet connectivity.
More than 900 convention-style hotel rooms are located within walking distance. The facility also offers convenient vehicle access via Interstates 25 and 40 and there are in excess of 700 covered parking spaces at the site. In addition, stops for the Rapid Ride, the city’s premier public transportation option, as well as the Rail Runner, a light rail service providing daily service between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, are within a few blocks of the Convention Center.
Other amenities available at the ACC include free Wi-Fi zones in all lobby areas, a convenient on-site business center, and an exclusive in-house food service provider able to prepare high-quality local and national menus customized to guests’ tastes. The Center’s trained and professional staff prides itself on providing exceptional, personalized service.
Of particular interest to ESA Annual Meeting attendees, may be the fact that the ACC management, recognizing the potential to make a huge impact on any event, understands its global responsibility to reduce the facility’s footprint on our environment. To demonstrate their commitment to this effort, they have developed and follow practices to reduce, reuse, and recycle in the way they do business.
