Profile:
Recently named to Forbes magazine’s list of the country’s fastest-growing cities, Charlotte, NC, is a work-meets- play town that marries a bustling business district with award-winning restaurants, museums, and attractions. In the heart of the city’s compact, walkable Uptown is the 550,000-square-foot Charlotte Convention Center, a premier meeting space that offers exhibitors numerous amenities, including free Wi-Fi, a food court, other in-house food and beverage options, knowledgeable visitor info services, an on-site UPS store, and more.
A 15-minute ride from Charlotte Douglas International Airport and within walking distance of more than 200 restaurants, the convention center sits across the street from a Whole Foods Market and is bookended by The Westin Charlotte Hotel and the Hilton Charlotte Center City. It’s also connected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame via an overstreet walkway.

KEY FEATURES

AMPLE AMENITIES
Totaling 280,000 square feet of contiguous trade show space, the venue’s exhibit halls can accommodate 1,250 booths or be divided into four halls. Four freight elevators, 20 covered loading-dock bays, three concession stands, and in-house electrical and plumbing keep events running smoothly.

BEYOND CONVENTION
The 86,000-square-foot NASCAR Hall of Fame features multiple event spaces, including a 19,000-square-foot outdoor plaza. The venue provides a unique backdrop for large events, as it’s capable of accommodating up to 2,400 people. Run by the same company as the Charlotte Convention Center, it enjoys in-house catering and other amenities.

UPCOMING EXPANSION
Beginning this spring, the convention center will undergo a $110 million expansion that will be available for contracting in spring 2021. The project will add roughly 50,000 square feet of breakout meeting rooms and prefunction space. An overstreet pedestrian walkway will also connect the venue to The Westin Charlotte Hotel, two other hotels, and the city’s light rail.
