Our Story

Designed By Event Professionals for Events

Opened in 1990, with more than 100 professional meeting planners working together with architects to design every aspect of the building, the result was simple; a sensible, state-of-the-art facility with easy traffic flow and everything you need in a stunningly beautiful building in the heart of downtown Denver. Expanded in 2005, well-known as one of the most practical and “user friendly” meeting facilities, the Colorado Convention Center is now home to over 250+ events annually. The Colorado Convention Center is located within easy walking distance of over 8,700 hotel rooms, 300 restaurants, 9 theatres of the Denver Performing Arts Complex and a wide variety of shopping and retail outlets.

On November 3, 2015, Denver voters overwhelmingly approved a major expansion of the Colorado Convention Center. The new expansion will include many new features that will make the Center the most high-tech, user-friendly meeting and event space in the nation. Learn more about the Colorado Convention Center's upcoming expansion here.
