Profile:
Cobo Center offers everything an event needs to be a great success. After a recent $279 million renovation, the newly transformed venue is the cornerstone for the Detroit comeback, putting the city back on the map as one of the country’s most exciting destinations for trade shows, conventions, and meetings.
The suite of technology services that are available in the new Cobo Center is second to none, thanks to recent upgrades including a broadcast studio and digital signage system featuring a 4,800-square-foot marquee and 3,000-square-foot sign on the venue’s exterior.
An additional entrance through a three-story glass atrium adds 30,000 square feet of flex space, and the adjacent 40,000-square-foot Grand Riverview Ballroom opens to the river and can be divided to accommodate smaller events. Total flex space as a result of the Cobo Center renovation is 200,000 square feet.

Key Features

TECHNOLOGY SERVICES
The Cobo Center features two massive digital signs on the venue’s exterior and 100 digital meeting room signs, along with various configurations of additional digital signage in the food court and business center. A 20,000-square-foot broadcast studio boasts a satellite uplink, green room, and sound stage, as well as an extensive fiber network throughout the facility, allowing planners to broadcast events. Cobo Center also offers free, robust, facility-wide Wi-Fi, with a 10G broadband upgrade coming soon.

CONTIGUOUS EXHIBIT HALL
Of the 723,000 square feet of exhibit-hall space in Cobo Center, 623,000 are contiguous and dividable among four halls, making Cobo Center ideal for large international events such as the North American International Auto Show, hosted each year in January.

GRAND RIVERVIEW BALLROOM
Cobo Center’s Grand Riverview Ballroom offers 40,000 square feet of event space, making it the largest ballroom in the state of Michigan. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views of the downtown Detroit skyline and the Detroit River, as well as Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
