About Houston Convention Center

The George R. Brown Convention Center was opened in 1987 and named for a well-known Houston philanthropist, civic leader and entrepreneur. The facility is owned by the City of Houston and managed by the Houston First Corporation. The modern 100-foot-high building was designed through a collaboration of Houston architects. The first convention every held in this state-of-the-art facility was the American Society of Travel Agents.

In 2001, an expansion project began to add a 1,200-room hotel adjacent to the convention center. The building grew from 1,150,000 square feet to 1,800,000 square feet. Three new exhibit halls and 57 meeting rooms were added at this time. The renovation was completed in 2003.

The George R. Brown Convention Center has an impressive amount of space for a variety of purposes. There's 1.2 million square feet for meetings, exhibits and registration, including seven exhibit halls. If you're looking for a space to hold a sports event, large presentation, concert or corporate meeting, the convention center offers an arena with seats for 6,000 people. If you need functional event space, the George Bush Grand Ballroom has over 31,000 square feet of it and can be divided into three separate sections. The General Assembly Theater is a tiered theater hall that seats 3,600. There are 117 meeting rooms and 185,000 square feet of meeting space. In addition, the convention center offers four spacious outdoor balconies at 3,000 square feet each.

If you are interested in Houston history and its citizens, visit the Houston Hall of Fame, which is located outside the George Bush Grand Ballroom on the third floor of the convention center. The Hall honors Houston residents who have achieved excellence in their respective fields.
