Phoenix Convention Center & Venues


A whole new angle on meetings and conventions


Room to spare Phoenix Convention Center’s 45,600-square- foot ballroom, in the North Building, is Arizona’s largest ballroom. In the West Building is a second, 45,000-square-foot ballroom, and in the South Building is a third, 28,000-square-foot ballroom.


LEED Silver certification, Arizona’s largest ballroom, and a $3.2-million public art pro- gram — Phoenix Convention Center & Venues (PCC&V) is one of the country’s top 10 con- vention facilities for a number of unique rea- sons, and there’s no better time to experience them all than the present.

Phoenix Convention Center’s 26-acre

The West Building also houses the Executive Conference Center, which has been built to the highest of industry standards and offers 21,000 square feet of meeting space, includ- ing a 192-seat lecture hall with fitted data ports, power outlets, and assisted-listening devices that can provide real-time interpreta- tion for up to four languages. Symphony Hall, an elegant, 2,312-seat concert hall that hosts the Phoenix Symphony, Arizona Ballet, and Arizona Opera, can also be easily accessed through the West Building’s main lobby.
