Welcome to one of the most exclusive event venues in Tacoma. Our sleek, customizable spaces, stunning views, and full-service catering will set your special event apart.

Of all the event venues in Tacoma, why choose the Greater Tacoma Convention Center? We know you have a lot riding on your event, whether it’s a fundraiser, celebration, school dance, or something else.

Our difference

Our clients tell us that they appreciate how flexible and customizable our spaces are. Whatever your vision is, we can bring it to life with you in ways that will impress your guests and make the most of your budget.

We also receive a lot of positive feedback about the elegance of our venue. The Convention Center has a sleek, industrial-modern feeling. You sense it in the building’s materials. In the drama of its suspended staircase. In the way its all-glass facade pulls in the city skyline. And in its art installations featuring oils, old-growth timbers, and even Andy Warhol's famous Tacoma Dome Flower.

Our team of experts

Full-service catering with one-of-a-kind menus can be tailored to your vision, tastes, and budget. We provide an in-house, chef-driven culinary team able to execute refined dishes at all scales. We also offer world-class audio-visual support and an Event Manager to serve as your point person, ensuring that your event runs like clockwork.

View the photo gallery below to see the various ways the Convention Center can be transformed to the perfect social event setting. Let our event professionals translate your vision into a reality.
