The new conventions center is expected to be operating in 2013, with an exhibit area of 15.000 square meters.
Government authorities have conducted analysis into the possible location of the center on land which was transferred to the Amador Foundation in order to fund the Bio-museum .
The companies Constructora Norberto Odebrecht, Ingenieros Civiles y Asociados (ICA), and the consortium HPC-Contratas-PIB have submitted their proposals for the construction of the new convention center.
The canal country is growing as a host for international meetings and at the end of 2012 there were 126 events which accounted for the occupation of 120,000 room nights.
Days after the government announced its intention to sell the Atlapa Convention Center, it has announced a tender for January, for the design and construction of a new project.
