SMX Convention Center Clark announced that it was recently accorded Accreditation from the Department of Tourism (DOT).

The DOT Accreditation is a comprehensive program that ensures tourism-based businesses and enterprises in the country are able to meet the minimum standards and procedures stipulated under Republic Act 9593, also known as the Tourism Act of 2009.

The law acknowledges tourism as an indispensable element of the national economy and an industry of national interest and importance. The main objective of this policy is to boost tourism in the country with the proper implementation of standards and procedures to guarantee the quality of services provided by tourism enterprises.

With its accreditation, SMX Convention Center Clark thus became the second stand-alone convention center of SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) to receive such a distinction following SMX Manila.

SMX Convention Center Clark is a modern Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions (MICE) facility located at the gateway of the Philippines, Clark in Pampanga. It is strategically located beside Park Inn by Radisson Clark across SM City Clark, and near Clark International Airport, making it very accessible to both local and foreign delegates.

SMX Clark boasts a gross leasable space of 4,000 sq. m., which is spacious enough to host corporate meetings, incentives, exhibitions, and conferences of up to 4,620 persons. The facility houses three huge halls with a floor area of 1,620 sq. m., three pillar-less and customizable function rooms with a total of up to 1,664 sq. m., and 14 meeting rooms that are suited for small-scale events such as: meetings, workshops, training sessions, and seminars.

SMX Convention Center Clark, which opened in May 2022, strives to contribute to making Northern Luzon one of the premiere destinations for MICE in the country. All events held at SMX Convention Centers adhere to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF), Department of Tourism, and local government unit guidelines, as well as SMX’s own safety protocols.
