The Anaheim Convention Center first became a meetings and conventions destination in 1967. Since those early days, the Anaheim Convention Center has completed a total of 6 expansions plus several cosmetic renovations. With the most recent expansion, completed in January 2013, the center provides a versatile venue that will meet the need of almost any event.
The main lobby area soars 190 feet to the top of the highest spire. The walls are glass, inviting Southern California's famous sunshine into your meeting. The Anaheim Convention Center's pre-function areas total 200,000 square feet, offering limitless possibilities for dramatic meeting themes and show decoration. They invite the meeting planner's imagination to soar.
The Anaheim Convention Center houses 815,000 square feet of exhibit space, already the largest exhibit facility on the West Coast, which will increase to 1.15 million square feet by May 2017. All halls are directly accessible from the spacious lobby/registration pre-function areas. All the meeting and ballroom space in the Anaheim Convention Center has been newly constructed. Space totals 130,000 square feet which conveniently occupies the 2nd and 3rd levels, directly above the exhibit halls.
Meeting and ballroom space is flexibly designed to accommodate almost any size meeting. Moveable walls divide spaces into small break out rooms, or can be folded away for general sessions. The ballroom is one of the largest available in any convention center, 38,058 square feet.
