About the Phoenix Convention Center
The Phoenix Convention Center, expanded in 2008, offers more than 900,000 square feet of meeting and event space and more than two million in total square footage, making it one of the top 20 convention venues in the United States.
The 24-acre Phoenix Convention Center, in the heart of Copper Square, has been hosting national and regional conventions and trade shows as well as consumer events and theatrical productions since it opened in 1972. And, as Phoenix has undergone tremendous growth through the years by attracting high-technology businesses, transplants from other states, and an increase in tourism, so has the Phoenix Convention Center.
In the mid-90s the Phoenix Convention Center embarked on an ambitious $32 million renovation project to update and enhance its image and keep the facility competitive for convention and trade show business. The massive interior and exterior refurbishing included the addition of 60,000 square feet of shaded patio area including a 15,000 square foot tent and flanking galleries on elegant Symphony Hall Terrace. An additional $1.5 million interior sprucing up incorporated Southwest accent colors including burgundy, sage, and muted tones of slate and gold. The unique carpet pattern represents the city's vibrant growth, with a digitized pattern incorporating a distinctive aerial view of downtown Phoenix.
