SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) is set to open another iconic convention property, the SMX Convention Center Clark, next May.
The expansion of SMHCC’s brand portfolio in Central Luzon follows the openings of Park Inn by Radisson Clark Extension in June 2021 and SMX Convention Center Olongapo in November 2020.
“These developments in North Luzon underscore SMHCC’s confidence in this bustling economic hub,” said Peggy Angeles, executive vice president of SM Hotels and Conventions Corp.
“According to the Philippine Board of Investments, Central Luzon attracted the highest volume of investments in 2020, amounting to over one trillion pesos in approved investments. Clark continues to be at the forefront of all of this, with Clark Development Corporation (CDC) business recovery efforts,” Angeles added.
SMX Convention Center Clark will be SMHCC’s second freestanding convention center after SMX Manila.

Located less than a 16-minute drive from the airport via the Manuel Roxas Expressway and approximately a 20-minute drive via Gil Puyat Clark East Perimeter Road, the SMX Convention Center Clark enjoys an unrivaled location and is set to become one of the main MICE sites in central Luzon. choice.
