The Albuquerque Convention Center underwent a complete renovation transforming both the east and west buildings into a modern gathering space while still maintaining the traditional and strong New Mexican aesthetic through the interior.

Completed in two phases, the West Wing Ballrooms, 11,000 square foot kitchen, dock area, and the stucco exterior of the East and West Buildings all received a face-lift by the end of the project in 2014.  A new glass facade adorns the west side of the West Building, which provides the visitors with floor to ceiling views of the downtown landscape, a new balcony, and a new executive conference room.
