It's bigger, better, faster and more beautiful than ever. With over 1,000,000 square feet of exhibit space, 724,526 square feet of prime contiguous space -including a 203,000-square-foot singular column-free exhibit hall, the largest in the world-a 9,816-seat arena, a 1,750-seat theater, a pair of ballrooms and the world's largest vertiport. And now, the first wireless convention center in the world is also one of the fastest, with a state-of-the-art Cisco-Certified system available anywhere in the facility, form the large exhibit spaces to any of the 96 meeting rooms. Plus, it's easy to access all that space and technology with 75 truck berths. The DCC is as beautiful as it is practical, too. Outside, Pioneer Plaza, the largest bronze sculpture in the world, recreates a Texas cattle drive, with 40 longhorns and 3 cowboys. Inside, there's "The Light Wave," located in the new A/B Lobby Concourse and beautiful Terrazzo flooring.

  • Nice, very large facility. Well kept with lots of staff on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly. Temperature control was an issue in several of the rooms and the food was outrageously priced and ...  more »

  • Very nice convention center in Dallas near plenty hotels. Food is priced high, but not unusual for any similar place. Very accessible and every detail nicely thought out. The auditorium is also very large like the convention halls. Parking is onsight and prices are posted online. I ordered Jimmy Johns who will deliver rather than pay too much for food offered at $18 for hot lunch (not including beverage).
  • One of the best convention center in the country... Great historical sites close by... But food is not in great availability real close... May plan to drive if not eating at the convention center... Parking will run 15, 10 or 6 dollars a day depending how early you get there and how far you are willing to walk... Also there is public transportation but is not used alot downtown... This is a good option... There are some free and inexpensive lines to use...
