Convention Center Description

The McAllen Convention Center, which opened in March of 2007, was designed to capture the elements of its surroundings, with bi-cultural themes and tropical accents.

McAllen has always been where the movers and shakers in South Texas meet. This amazing city offers spectacular, technologically advanced convention facilities and capabilities. Our world-class Convention Center beautifully handles a small business meeting or convention of up to 1,200 attendees.

And once the meeting is over, a world of fun awaits attendees and their families – everything from thousands of acres of wilderness waiting to be wandered to our lively 17th Street that sizzles after the sun goes down. This business-friendly city in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley has the right accommodations, attitude and activities to make your meeting make you look good. In short, McAllen is your ideal convention location.
