Convention Center Arts & Entertainment District

Dynamic developments are happening here in The Palm Beaches.

We continue to provide outstanding venues and extraordinary experiences that bring you and your attendees to our vibrant destination year after year. Today, our ability to host exceptional meetings has been strengthened by Convention Center advancements, hotel inventory growth and ease of accessibility.
Convention Center Advancements
Centrally located in the heart of the downtown district and just 3 miles from Palm Beach International Airport, the Palm Beach County Convention Center is the ideal venue to host your meeting, event, convention or trade show.

And coming soon, an exciting new experience is being planned for the Convention Center that will make your event "sun"-sational!
When meetings are done, your attendees can experience the immersive attractions situated around the downtown district. Rosemary Square, an upscale lifestyle and entertainment center, is directly across the street from the Convention Center; the Warehouse District, located behind the Convention Center, is easily accessible through walkable paths; and Clematis Street is a free trolley ride away via Rosemary Square.
