The Sacramento Convention Center Complex is Getting an Extreme Makeover
The complex includes not only the Sacramento Convention Center, but also Memorial Auditorium and the Community Center Theater, which are also used as event spaces. The western half of the facility will be replaced with new and improved space. This will add 22,494 square feet of exhibit space, meeting rooms, a new 40,000-square-foot ballroom, a new kitchen, and lobby. The new lobby will have 55-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and auto showroom doors that will allow for a more flexible event and exhibit space. The eastern side will be renovated with new meeting rooms, a new lobby and upgrade the existing ballroom, pre-function and meeting space. A new 15,300-square-foot outdoor activities plaza will also be built allowing for flexible outdoor space, which can be used for exhibits, meeting space and other food and beverage events. Construction is slated to begin in early 2019 and will be completed in late 2020. Construction on the interior of the new ballroom will continue with an anticipated completion date of early April 2021.
