The Charlotte Convention Center opened in 1995 as the perfect 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 its airy concourses, the Charlotte Convention Center was designed to be elegant and inviting.
Flanked by art and spacious alcoves, the grand concourse welcomes visitors and provides easy access to all points in the Convention Center. Soaring ceilings add volume to the 280,000 square feet 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. Twenty covered loading docks and direct drive-in access to each hall makes setup easy and efficient.
The Convention Center’s ballroom spans 35,000 square feet with banquet seating for up to 1,800 guests. Pre-function areas extend the ballroom space by 15,000 square feet. More than 90,000 square feet of flexible meeting space (37 meeting rooms) 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.
For even more event possibilities, the 40,000 sq. ft. Crown Ballroom located in the NASCAR Hall of Fame is accessible via a convenient over-street walkway. The dynamic space features unobstructed views, a built-in stage with state-of-the-art audio/visual capabilities, and the same award-winning food service from the Convention Center.
