Plan Your Next Conference at South Padre Island
Meetings Are Better With a View
Planning a corporate event, a convention, or a conference? At South Padre Island, it’s never business as usual. With a variety of meeting and convention spaces available to fit large and small groups, South Padre Island is the perfect place to host your next event.
Located on 30 scenic acres, the South Padre Island Convention Center boasts a strict “no tie” policy, so attending your conference can be just as effortless as planning it. The SPI Convention Center has a whopping 45,000 square feet of meeting and conference space and plentiful parking so your event, large or small, will have room to stretch out. In addition to 22,500 square feet of exhibit hall space (with a clear ceiling height of 36 feet for concerts, large meetings and sporting events), the center offers a large media-ready conference auditorium that seats 250 people. Additionally, 9,000 square feet of meeting rooms are available, and a large central lobby makes an excellent space for exhibits and functions. Our professional and accommodating staff will show you true South Texas hospitality no matter what you need — they’re more than happy to help you with organizing, catering, accommodations, last-minute technology snaggles, or an after-hours itinerary to make sure that your entire group enjoys every moment of their visit to South Padre Island.
Just outside the convention center, you’ll find a boardwalk leading over the marshes to some of the best birdwatching and wildlife viewing in the Rio Grande Valley. Slip on your walking shoes during a break, grab your binoculars and camera, and leave your worries behind to see South Texas nature at its finest. You may observe migratory birds like orioles, warblers, and herons, or perhaps lizards sunning themselves under a brilliant blue sky. If you’re lucky, you may even notice a few alligators! After the meeting is through, South Padre Island offers some of the very best places to kick back and relax. First-class accommodations and dining, shopping, and of course, the cleanest, widest beach in Texas beckon. What happens outside of your meeting is just as important as what happens within, and our friendly staff will be pleased to help your group have the time of their lives while they’re visiting us.
