ABOUT Colorado Convention Center

The Colorado Convention Center is considered to be one of the most prestigious meeting facilities in the United States. Nestled in the heart of Denver in view of the Rocky Mountains, this facility offers sixty three meeting rooms, one of the worlds largest exhibit spaces, and one thousand parking spaces. The Center is home to the Wells Fargo Theater and the Mile High Ballroom. More than four hundred events per year are held at the center each year including concerts, trade shows, and art exhibits.

Completed in 1990 and renovated in 2005, The Colorado Convention Center is commonly called the most "user friendly" convention center in North America. This state-of-the-art facility was designed by more than one hundred experts with expertise in planning and hosting large events. It is specifically designed for group events to flow freely without crossing traffic from other events.

The center is fully staffed with permanent vendors for catering and audio/ visual services. Centerplate is the exclusive catering service for the Colorado Convention Center and can prepare meals for as many as 10,000 guests. Image Audiovisuals is the Convention Center's full time onsite company for acoustics, sound, lighting, and video presentations.

The Colorado Convention Center offers the best of technology with an advanced fiber optic network and Wi-Fi throughout the building. Dedicated Internet connections are available in all conference rooms, ballrooms, offices, and even the theater. The system is staffed for 24 hours a day.

The Colorado Convention Center is considered eco friendly and utilizes sustainability by creating programs that encourage all vendors to hold green events. The staff keeps green causes in mind when creating policies, and they revise those that may cause harm to the environment.

The most popular feature of the Colorado Convention Center is "The Big Blue Bear." Designed in 2005, Lawrence Argent's forty-foot sculpture is named "I See What You Mean." It peeks inside the third floor of the center. The Big Blue Bear was adopted by the center after being displayed for the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs' Public Art Program. Small replicas of this celebrity statue are sold in the center's gift shop.
