The LEED®-certified 1.6 million-square-foot ACC is the largest convention center on the West Coast. This ultra-modern facility boasts the capability to host mega-conventions, meetings, tradeshows and events with ease.
The facility features 815,000 square feet of exhibit space, a 38,000-square-foot ballroom capable of sit-down banquets for 3,000 people, plus a variety of flexible space to accommodate meetings of all sizes.
In addition, the picturesque outdoor Grand Plaza, Palm Court, and Arena Plaza offer sunny possibilities for special events, receptions, and networking.
