The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, originally the Dallas Memorial Auditorium and the Dallas Convention Center, is a meeting hall, event/convention center and civic center in the Convention Center District of downtown Dallas, Texas.
It's bigger, better, faster and more beautiful than ever. With over 1,000,000 square feet of exhibit space, 724,526 square feet of prime contiguous space -including a 203,000-square-foot singular column-free exhibit hall, the largest in the world-a 9,816-seat arena, a 1,750-seat theater, a pair of ballrooms and the world's largest vertiport. And now, the first wireless convention center in the world is also one of the fastest, with a state-of-the-art Cisco-Certified system available anywhere in the facility, form the large exhibit spaces to any of the 96 meeting rooms. Plus, it's easy to access all that space and technology with 75 truck berths. The DCC is as beautiful as it is practical, too. Outside, Pioneer Plaza, the largest bronze sculpture in the world, recreates a Texas cattle drive, with 40 longhorns and 3 cowboys. Inside, there's "The Light Wave," located in the new A/B Lobby Concourse and beautiful Terrazzo flooring.
