Salt Palace Convention Center

The Salt Palace Convention Center is among the nation’s newest, largest, and most technologically advanced convention centers. With over 11,000 rooftop solar panels installed in 2011 in a 600,000-square-foot project, the Salt Palace will generate enough electricity to power 261 homes each year.

“they have such a terrific meetings industry in the city,” says bridget Sypolt, director of events for mPi. “the convention center and the hotels that feed into it are all very walkable; you are constantly running into your group, so it feels very close together. there are plenty of restaurants and bars in that same small area, so there are plenty of things to walk to in the evening.” From “Salt Lake City: Beehive State Buzz” MeetingsFocus.com, December 2009
