The Colorado Convention Center is expanding! The construction upgrades will make the center the most high-tech, user-friendly meeting and event space in the nation.
Highlights of the Project
- The development of new flexible meeting and ballroom space of up to 80,000 sq. ft.; the addition of 100,000+ sq. ft. of new pre-function and service space that will also include a 50,000 sq. ft. outdoor terrace to be located on the roof of the existing convention center. Both the pre-function and outdoor event spaces will have spectacular, unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains and city skyline.
- These new facilities will be seamlessly integrated into the building, and attendees will have easy access to the center's existing exhibit, meeting room and ballroom levels.
- Technology improvements will be made that will position the Colorado Convention Center as a "best-in-class" facility, keeping pace with current technologies and demand, including increased capacity for Wi-Fi and streaming video.
- New and improved networking spaces will be incorporated into the building, providing exciting and innovative spaces that capture the spirit of Denver and Colorado, and allow attendees to connect in new ways.
