About the Center
The Austin Convention Center is located in the heart of the capital of Texas, one of the most affordable cities in America. The convention center has a convenient downtown location, between the shores of Town Lake and historic Sixth Street. It has easy access to I-35 and is a short distance from 5,500 downtown hotel rooms.
In terms of space, there are five contiguous and column-free exhibit halls comprising 246,097 gross square feet. These halls feature a 43,300-square-foot Grand Ballroom, 1,500 retractable auditorium-style seats and 54,730 square feet of meeting rooms and offices. The Austin Convention Center also offers complementary wireless internet service, capable of moving 1 billion bits of data, voice or video - at 1 billion bits per second.
The facility’s expansion has allowed events to expand their conventions, trade shows and expos. It has also brought new conventions and visitors to Austin and its convention center.
Constructed of native Texas materials, from rustic limestone to polished granite, the facility’s different facades reflect the architectural diversity of an historic and vibrant city. Most pre-function spaces have generous, attractive views of downtown Austin, and the liberal use of windows keeps this facility from getting that “closed in” feeling.
