Durham Convention Center

Durham Convention Center is located in the heart of City Center District. The versatile meeting and event space plays host to a wide range of occasions, from state-wide conventions and large corporate meetings to elegant weddings and special events. Spectra Venue Management, a professional event management team, takes the guesswork out of planning with dedicated event planners, an executive culinary team, and on-site audio-visual and exhibitor services. By offering a premier space to accommodate both small and large events, Durham Convention Center attracts an increasing number of business and leisure travelers to downtown Durham. Durham Convention Center Complex also comprises the Carolina Theatre, Durham Armory, Durham Arts Council, and the connected Durham Marriott City Center.

In 2019 we celebrated the 150th anniversary of Durham and the 30th anniversary of Durham Convention Center. The reception was dedicated to honoring those who have contributed to envisioning this community assest in 1989. We honored these early visionaries along with our neighbors, City and County representatives, and our hospitality partners with whom we have the privilege to work with daily.During your next visit please stop by and see the plaque at the entrance which recognizes those who made Durham Convention Center possible.
