Lonely Planet review

Also known as the Havana Convention Center, this is one of Cuba's most dramatic modern buildings. Built for the Nonaligned Conference in 1979, the four interconnecting halls contain a state-of-the-art auditorium with 2101 seats and 11 smaller halls. The 589-member National Assembly meets here twice a year, and the complex hosts more than 50,000 conference attendees annually.

Not far from here is Pabexpo , 20,000 sq meters of exhibition space in four interconnecting pavilions that hosts about 15 trade shows a year.
