Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center


At a Glance

Centrally located in South Carolina's historic capital city, our convention center is in the middle of a vibrant urban scene with dynamite eats, world-class attractions, breweries and a never-ending roster of festivals and live music. Not to mention the affordable accommodations, exciting sporting venues, manageable traffic, and warmer weather year-round. And with three interstates that intersect the city and a regional airport, getting here is straightforward. 

Built in 2004, our downtown convention center is a modern and architecturally significant complex. From magnificent receptions and cultural galas to corporate functions and international trade shows, our center is adaptable to the needs of most any meeting planner. The center is a 142,500 square foot facility that includes a 16,700 square foot ballroom, 18,560 square feet of meeting space that can be broken into up to 19 different spaces, and a 23,700 square foot column less exhibit hall.
