he Spokane Convention Center campus sits on the banks of the Spokane River located in the heart of downtown, providing spectacular views of the 100-acre Riverfront Park along with close access to numerous restaurants, hotels, entertainment opportunities and unique shopping. The campus, which includes the First Interstate Center for the Arts and the Spokane Convention Center, is attached to two major hotels and surrounded by many others. Built specifically to host events, the Spokane Convention Center is the region’s premier choice for conventions, consumer shows, banquets, meetings and social events. With the completion of the 2015 expansion, the Spokane Convention Center has more than 300,000 sq. ft. of user-friendly space, including a 120,000-sq.-ft. exhibit hall, three ballrooms and the flexibility to host 40 breakouts. Unique spaces include a 270-seat, intimate Conference Theater and a highly appointed Executive Boardroom; both feature cutting-edge technical capabilities. The design of the expanded space was inspired by the desire to create a well-appointed space that is functional and efficient, to make a connection between the facility and the natural beauty of the area, and to meet the current and future needs of facility users. The result is beautiful, modern space with a north-facing window wall that brings in natural light and provides amazing views of the river and Riverfront Park. Each event space is surrounded by lobbies and public areas that invite guests to relax and enjoy the ambiance or engage in spontaneous conversations.

Over half a million dollars in art projects created by local artists have been commissioned since 2010 and bolster an art collection that began in the early 1970s. Each work of art reflects a story about the local community and helps create a “sense of place” for both local residents and visitors. For warm weather events, there is the spectacular Roof Deck and new Riverside Terrace, each with a panoramic view of the river and Riverfront Park — perfect for up to 500 people for stand-up receptions. A floating stage with stairs that seat over 1,000 people sets a dramatic stage for large concerts or intimate weddings. An Event Lawn, outside patios and the Breezeway between the First Interstate Center for the Arts complete the list of outdoor spaces perfect for events from early Spring through mid-Fall.
