About Us?Located in the heart of downtown Providence, the Rhode Island Convention Center was opened in December 1993. The center is a beautiful glass structure that offers space from 304 to 137,000 square feet to accommodate 10 to 9,000 people.
The Convention Center is a multi-purpose facility capable of hosting trade shows, consumer shows, exhibits, receptions, banquets, meetings and, of course, conventions. We also offer one of the most highly skilled, progressive and user-friendly labor environments in the country, at a fraction of the cost of other major cites in the Northeast. It is easily accessible by the highway, train, and the Providence's T.F. Green Airport is only 15 minutes away. For added convenience, the Convention Center is attached, via a skywalk, to the Westin Hotel and Providence Place Mall. With outstanding amenities and affordable prices, the Rhode Island Convention Center has forever changed the way people meet in New England!
