Event planning

Success you can plan on, a team you can trust

Your event is your baby. You need a venue and a team of experts that will take your event planning to the next level. That’s where the Greater Tacoma Convention Center comes in.

Washington Governor Inslee’s Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery allows for events at varying capacity limits, depending on event type. In addition, we have implemented flexible booking guidelines to reduce concerns for events in 2021. Please see our COVID-19 page for additional details.

Tacoma invites you to get ready for something greater. Perched above Commencement Bay and below Mt. Rainier, the Greater Tacoma Convention Center — the second largest meeting location in Western Washington — glistens like a jewel in Downtown Tacoma. Our mild weather, flexible spaces, and flawless event services staff have earned us a reputation as a top convention destination.
