The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Nestled in the heart of historic downtown San Antonio along the banks of the world famous River Walk thrives the nucleus of our City’s convention industry. The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center (HBGCC) plays host to more than 450 events each year with over 750,000 convention delegates from around the world.
The HBGCC once built as part of the 1968 HemisFair is but a memory as it has expanded into a beautifully decorated and spacious facility. The HBGCC spans an impressive 1.3 million square feet to include 63 meeting rooms, 3 beautiful ballrooms, 4 exhibit halls with a contiguous space of approximately 440,000 sq. ft. and 7 registration areas.
The HBGCC complex also features the Lila Cockrell Theatre, a 2,307-seat Performing Arts Theatre. The Alamodome and more than 12,500 of the City’s downtown hotel rooms (over 42,000 citywide) are within minutes and walking distance as well as restaurants and entertainment.
Come and see for yourself why readers of Meetings South Magazine recently voted the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention the “Best Convention Center in the Industry” two years in a row.
