Dallas Convention Center

650 S Griffin St
Dallas, TX 75202 

The Dallas Convention Center, one of the largest in the nation with more than 1 million square feet of combined exhibit space, has been consistently recognized as one of the best-run convention centers in America. Located in the heart of downtown Dallas, the Convention Center is a work of art. Many of its lobbies are adorned by art images depicting the story of Dallas, its diverse inhabitants and landscape. Be sure to step outside the front door into Pioneer Plaza, a park featuring native plants and trees, a flowing stream and a larger-than-life cattle drive made of bronze. These may be enjoyed along with the spectacular view of the Dallas skyline.
