Sports + Competitions

Flexible venue for hosting sporting events and competitions

Sporting events require a venue and event team set up to handle some tricky logistics. Our experienced staff and flexible venue will allow your guests to focus on what’s important — the competition.

Our experience
The Greater Tacoma Convention Center hosts many competitions and sporting events including gymnastics, volleyball, karate, cheerleading, and gaming tournaments. We’ve even hosted auditions for well-known network TV shows.

Our space
The 50,000 square-foot column-free Exhibition Hall has high ceilings and wide-open, expansive spaces. Easy loading access and a freight elevator streamline equipment set up. The Convention Center has ample space for additional support functions like:

  • Rehearsal areas
  • Show offices
  • Dressing rooms

Concessions and tickets
Concession services are available, and planners can customize menu offerings to fit attendees' needs. Ticketing and guest-service staffing are also available for your event. Be sure to speak to your Sales Manager and Event Manager to make arrangements for these services.
