The Austin Convention Center is located in the heart of the capital of Texas, between the shores of Lady Bird Lake and historic Sixth Street. It has easy access to I-35 and is a short distance from 6,500 downtown hotel rooms. Constructed of native Texas materials, from rustic limestone to polished granite, the facility’s different facades reflect the architectural diversity of an historic and vibrant city. Stretching over six city blocks and 881,400 gross square feet of space, the Center offers 247,052 square feet of column-free exhibit space divisible into five contiguous halls that can accommodate 1,289 10’ X 10’ booths. The fifth hall offers retractable riser seating for up to 1,500, making it an ideal location for general sessions, sporting events and concerts.
