Mexico City is a world leader in culture and finance. You’ll find it on a high central plateau in the Valley of Mexico, at a staggering 2,240 meters (7,350 ft) altitude.

The city has a population of 9.2 million, with the greater metropolitan area home to 21.8 million people, making it the 6th biggest in the world!

And as we said, the city’s cultural and financial clout is undeniable, having been founded in 1325 to now boasting a $411 billion GDP. So now that you’re sufficiently inspired to host an event in Mexico City, let’s crack on with it!

When it comes to events in Mexico City, you can do it all. It’s a cultural and business centre the world over. There is no type of event in Mexico City that you can’t organise.

From intimate cultural experiences to full-scale corporate conferences, it’s all going on. But going forward, we’re really excited about the blockchain, crypto, and tech-related events the city is becoming famous for.

Venues in Mexico City

As for the venues in Mexico City, we love the versatility of what’s on offer. As you might already have guessed, some seriously illustrious historical locations are there for you to utilise.

And, in the opposite direction, there’s a rich assortment of sleek contemporary venues thanks to the city’s business credentials.

The Best Areas in Mexico City

And as you also know by now, we’re dealing with one of the biggest cities in the world. So narrowing down the best areas in Mexico City might seem like a daunting task. Well, you don’t even have to worry about it, because we’ve done this bit of homework for you already! Our three favourites are Centro Historico, Zona Rosa, and Polanco.

Centro Historico is, as the name suggests, full of history. Great for events with grandeur. Zona Rosa is your go-to destination for after-work events – it’s the true nightlife zone. And as for Polanco, it’s high-end in the extreme. Here you’ll find all the embassies, fancy shops, and sophisticated restaurants.

Getting Around in Mexico City

When it comes to public transport in Mexico City, prepare to be impressed and surprised. Yes, some modes are commonplace. Think of the metro, suburban rail, light rail, and bus services. Nothing you won’t see in most big cities, right?

However, further charming additions to public transport in Mexico City include minibuses (known locally as paseos), cable cars, and trolley buses.

And best of all, it’s an integrated system, all accessible with one card: the Tarjeta de Movilidad Integrada (integrated mobility card).

In short, your guests can get to your event in Mexico City via public transport without fuss.

Food in Mexico City

Mexican cuisine is famed the world over, and for good reason. It’s just amazing. And when it comes to the food in Mexico City, it’s a capital that leads from the front.

However, there are entire books dedicated to Mexican cuisine. But this is just a humble and concise Mexico City guide. So, for the time being, here’s a short list of our favourite foods in Mexico City.

We can’t begin without talking about tacos first. And the pride of Mexico City is Tacos Al Pastor. It’s slow-roasted pork cooked in a Lebanese-inspired style, topped with coriander (cilantro), onion, and in most cases, a slice of pineapple.

We also love Chicharrónes. They’re ultra-crispy bits of pork skin or belly. Chicharrónes are best enjoyed on the go with some hot sauce or as an additional filling to more substantial dishes.

Alternatively, how about Chapulines? They’re seasoned and roasted grasshoppers. It might sound strange to the uninitiated, but it’s an experience you have to try. This snack originated from the Oaxaca region and is best served with guacamole and some corn tortillas.

And finally, you need to try Chiles En Nogadapoblano. It’s pepper stuffed with meat and covered in a nogada sauce made from walnuts. It’s decorated with red pomegranate, giving it a distinctive Instagram-worthy look!

So, as you can see, food will be a key element in making a great event in Mexico City. It’s a great opportunity for event planners to wow their attendees with some local treasures they’ll be thinking about long after they’ve touched down back home.

The Weather in Mexico City

The weather in Mexico City is fascinating. Due to its proximity to the equator, you can expect it to be hot. However, it’s also got an impressive elevation of 2,240 meters (7,350 ft). That means it has a curious climate where the weather is consistent year-round, with warm days and cold nights.

And as for rain, you’ll have dry winters and wet summers. So, the long and short of it is you can host events in Mexico City all year round!

FAQ for Event Venues in Mexico City

The possibilities are endless. But basically; “whatever you want, as long as you respect the rules” (safety standards, noise pollution, social distancing, etc.). If you’re not sure, it’s best to align with your location expert. They can provide you with the answers and solutions when hunting for the right location, e.g. permits, licenses, etc.

Usually, yes. Most venues (especially the larger ones) tend to have standard AV equipment available. It can come at an extra cost, but this may also be cheaper than using a third-party service provider. 

For catering, it’s common to source an external provider. However, the venue will likely have a list of preferred vendors. We recommend choosing a caterer from this list to avoid corkage fees or unpleasant surprises on the day. 

The cost depends on the selected venue and market conditions. In general, dry hire can be around 30% cheaper than wet hire (incl. catering). However, booking a dry hire venue and then sourcing external service providers (for extras such as AV installation, catering, etc.) can result in a total budget that's 15-20% higher than a wet hire venue. We've seen a +50% premium for the same services!

Mexico City has nearly every type of venue available for different events. Be wary that most venues are in the middle to upper budget range segment, though.
