About Phoenix Convention Center
Named one of the Top 10 facilities of its kind in the entire U.S., the Phoenix Convention Center not only boasts more than 900,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space, but it’s also home to a 2,312-seat symphony hall and the historic 1,364-seat Orpheum Theatre.
This state-of-the-art venue is situated right in the middle of the vibrant downtown area, near restaurants, pro sports stadiums, art museums and more.
Though the original facility opened in 1972, renovations in ‘06, ’08 and ’09 expanded and updated the convention center, which now reflects its Arizona setting. The soaring lobby area, in fact, was designed to mimic the angles and light of one of the area’s many canyons.
