Clark’s first MICE location opens


THE SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) announced in 2018 that it will have another iconic building in the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) industry and is expected to stand at Clark.

SMX Clark is SMHCC’s second freestanding convention center.

The courage and resilience of the SMHCC team enabled them to stand the test of the COVID-19 pandemic and overcome the challenges it presented.

Fast forward to today, four years later, he is delivering on his promise by officially launching the SMX Convention Center in the heart of Pampanga.

In her message, Peggy Angeles, Executive Vice President of SMHCC, said this new addition to SMHCC’s diverse portfolio of convention centers is “the second stand-alone convention center after SMX Manila.”

It comes after the launch of SMX Convention Center Olongapo in November 2020.

Angeles added that the SMHCC is delighted to feature the SMX Convention Center Clark as “one of the premier event venues and key players in Central Luzon’s burgeoning MICE business.”

It perfectly complements Clark Freeport’s vision to become a MICE and tourism center in the Asia-Pacific region by 2030, and reinforces SMHCC’s unwavering commitment to providing quality, variety and flexibility in terms of spaces, without sacrificing the security.

With 4,000 square meters of gross leasable space, three retail lobbies, three ballrooms and 14 smaller meeting rooms, “it is ready to accommodate small, medium and large-scale events while capitalizing on its strategic location,” she said.

“What you saw today are just a few of the countless creative ways to transform these event spaces at SMX into slice-of-life representations that exude vibrancy, rhythm and energy,” Angeles noted.

The venue is conveniently adjacent to the Park Inn by Radisson Clark and within the growing SM City Clark complex.

SMX Clark offers free Wi-Fi, furnished with concierge desks and LFD TV monitors for event announcements.

Its three purpose-built halls have a total area of ​​1,466 square meters, accommodating a wide range of diverse requirements, from multi-level cabins to heavy machinery displays.

From 450 to 1,000 guests can be seated in the three function rooms on the second floor, which can be combined into an area of ​​up to 1,664 square meters for corporate affairs, graduation ceremonies, launches products and large-scale social events. It is fully carpeted and equipped with LED lights to add a touch of prestige to any gathering.

Meeting rooms can accommodate a few select delegates or, when combined and customized to preference, up to 700 attendees, ideal for small-scale corporate and social gatherings, board meetings, training seminars and also as sub-committee rooms for plenary sessions in the large spaces of the congress center.

With the economy continuing to open up, “SMX Convention Center Clark is poised to redefine the MICE industry outside of Metro Manila and is poised to be an active witness to momentous events and celebrations in the central Luzon and beyond,” Angeles said.
