The Charlotte Convention Center opened in 1995 as the prefect venue for conventions, trade shows, banquets and theater-style conferences, attracting more than half a million visitors each year. From its gracefully arched entrances to the glass concourses beyond, the Center was designed to be elegant and inviting.

Soaring ceilings add volume to the 280,000 sq. ft. of contiguous exhibit space, which accommodates general session setups and up to 1,250 exhibit booths. This space may be sectioned into four halls with separate loading entrances for simultaneous shows. The Center’s ballroom spans 35,000 sq. ft. with banquet seating for up to 1,800 guests. Pre-function areas extend the ballroom space by 15,000 sq. ft. More than 90,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space feature centralized audio recording and separate controls for podiums and lights. In addition, the business center is equipped to support any business transaction needed to keep convention operations running smoothly.
