This project is providing a much needed facelift for the Albuquerque Convention Center. Plans for the Convention Center Facelift involve targeting multiple renovations needed for the structure to better facilitate large conventions and events. The renovations include multiple updates to the current infrastructure and amenities. These renovations will allow the structure to be better equipped at handling larger local and traveling events. This has the potential to bring a great deal of extra business and tourism to the City of Albuquerque.
