Since opening in September 2008, the new Raleigh Convention Center has been a remarkable resource for groups from 50 to 5000. Our dedicated staff is here to make sure each visitor’s needs — whether as an attendee, planner or exhibitor — are met.
The Raleigh Convention Center is a bustling hub for the culture, commerce and technologies that make the Triangle one of the most admired and sought after regions in the United States. The modern, 500,000 sq ft facility includes a soaring street-level lobby, an elegant ballroom and a massive exhibit hall as well as cutting edge tech amenities and award-winning culinary delights.
The convention center is home to the iconic Cree Shimmer Wall, closely associated with the Downtown Amphitheater and Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, and just steps from the city's restaurants and hot spots. In 2011, the center earned the honor of "Most Creative Place to Host a Meeting" from ConventionSouth magazine.
