Panama as a center for conventions

Categories: Planifica tu Evento

Panama is currently one of the best-known countries for convention tourism. The business tourism industry allows us to position ourselves as a leader in hosting events, congresses, conventions and trade shows, serving as an international showcase to promote diverse products and services.

The opportunities to enter the country, its ease of connectivity and diverse lodging facilities, whether in the heart of the capital or in the natural environment offered in the provinces, along with an array of tourist attractions, allow visitors to conduct business events without failing to get to know the isthmus as a destination, in its unique style of living in comfort and style. 

Panama City

Most of the hotels are found near the international banking center, which permits rapid access to any required banking services. Shopping centers and tourist attractions are also easily reached from the hotels within a 15-30 minute commute in tourist taxis, metro buses public taxis or on foot.
