Charlotte Convention Center
Vacation Travel Guide

In downtown Charlotte check out trade shows, sporting events and conventions at this key venue that features grand ballrooms and dining areas.

Old-fashioned hospitality is combined with state-of-the-art facilities at the Charlotte Convention Center. The modern convention complex is Charlotte’s premier venue for touring trade shows, thrilling sports contests and large-scale meetings. Check out the convention center’s busy schedule of events and pick from a list of diverse programs. With its sleek architectural design and contemporary fittings, the Charlotte Convention Center gets the best out of every event it hosts.

Admire the center’s design as you make your way through the grand main entrance. Opened in 1995, the building’s architecture incorporates an ultra-modern façade of glass and a simple arched awning. Check out the light-filled lobby and mingle with other attendees. Depending on the event you are attending, you might explore the center’s spacious exhibition area or its large meeting rooms. The center also features two magnificent ballrooms for awards ceremonies and other events.

Make use of the center’s pre-function space or stroll down the concourse. You might see well-appointed trade shows or expos with exciting innovations on display. Attend a conference on issues or industries that are important to you or find out about different communities in Charlotte.

The event you are attending may include the Charlotte Convention Center’s in-house catering service. Alternatively, visit the center’s Delish Food Court to make a selection from a range of meal and refreshment options.

Spend some time exploring the Charlotte Convention Center’s surroundings. A large plaza runs alongside the building’s eastern flank, next to the entrance. Sit on a park bench and admire the fountains in the small pond or wander over to the tree-lined lawns of the Green, which is situated a block away.

The Charlotte Convention Center is located in downtown Charlotte. The center is served by railway and trolley lines, which pass directly through the building itself. Check online or visit the front desk to find out what’s happening at the Charlotte Convention Center during your visit. The center is conveniently located near several hotels, parking lots and downtown attractions.
