What defines Mexico City as a destination?
Covering an enormous area, Mexico City is divided into 16 boroughs. There's Centro Historico, home to Aztec landmarks and government buildings; business hub Zona Rosa, which is particularly interesting for business travellers and boasts a concentration of corporate offices, luxury hotels, and excellent shopping and nightlife; and Polanco, which offers a variety of designer stores. Santa Fe, another important economic district, was the site of a 20-year megaproject and is now a particularly modern and well-planned commercial zone.
Where are the main business events held in the city?
The Hilton Mexico City Reforma and JW Marriott, located in the city centre, offer large conference spaces and feature business expos regularly. Nearby is the World Trade Center Mexico City, an ultra-modern building used for international conventions, hosting events such as the Green Expo, Expo Finanzas, and Expo DataNet. Carso Global Telecom, Sears Mexico, and Compartamos Banco are some of the many corporations based in the city. The Mexican Stock Exchange, dubbed the ‘BMV’ or ‘Bolsa Mexicana de Valores’, is centrally located in the Juarez district. Although Mexico City is massive, driving from the airport to the very centre of town takes as little as 15 minutes.
