What makes the Greater Tacoma Convention Center an ideal expo center and trade show venue for our clients? In a word, value. At 119,000 total square feet, we are big enough to handle many types of trade shows.

And with soaring column-free ceilings, it’s the perfect design to accommodate many vendors and guests.

More than just an exhibition hall

We also offer the quintessential Northwest experience. Set in Tacoma’s thriving Museum District and surrounded on three sides by 43 miles of waterfront, the Convention Center rests in the center of Tacoma’s downtown, easily within walking distance of food, culture, accommodations, and fun.

We can handle many types of trade shows, including:

  • Hobby and collector-style shows

Decorators and exhibitors will appreciate the ease of access and available utilities. The Convention Center boasts a loading dock with five total loading bays, including a drive-on ramp straight into the Exhibition Hall and a freight elevator to reach additional floors. Strategically placed floor boxes and access to utilities such as compressed air, water, drains, electricity, internet, and telecom make setting up your tradeshow a breeze.
