Renovations at the Monterey Conference Center

Exciting Upgrades for Monterey Meetings

Monterey Conference Center

The City of Monterey is going through some exciting changes and we are thrilled to have a front row seat! The Monterey Conference Center, adjacent to the Portola Hotel & Spa is in the process of a $60 million renovation.  The renovation is the largest project for the City of Monterey since they originally built the conference center back in 1977.

The Monterey Conference Center renovation will infuse up to $60 million dollars in physical and technological improvements into the building, including more flexible meeting space, more usable pre-function space, advanced technology, and the ability to host multiple meetings simultaneously. The new conference center plans to be a fellow U.S. Green Building Council LEED® Certified building.
