Henry B Gonzales Convention Center

Lobby & Pre-Function Spaces

Main Lobby and West Lobby

Walk through our doors into our premiere facilities. The Main Lobby is the main entrance which provides you with direct access to any of our four Exhibit Halls. It will also lead you to the meeting room level and ballroom level. In the Main Lobby, you will find the Market Café and a hallway to access the Broken Crust Café and the Lila Cockrell Theatre.

If your event is in the Lila Cockrell Theatre, Exhibit Hall 4B, Bridge Hall, the meeting rooms nearest Hemisfair Park or on the River Level, the West Lobby will be the most convenient entrance to use.

Pre-Function Spaces

Our main pre-function spaces allow for reception style events and registration locations. The newest pre-function area is just outside the Stars at Night Ballroom. If you need more room in addition to the largest ballroom in Texas, we have it. The pre-function area and conjoining terrace provide a beautiful view overlooking Market Street and downtown San Antonio. Take advantage of this space for a spectacular event on our ballroom floor.

The Hemisfair Ballroom also has a pre-function space that overlooks Tower View and the pre-function area for the meeting rooms below. Park View is the pre-function space for some of our largest meeting room spaces. Tower View and Park View are both located on the meeting room level and are excellent indoor and outdoor spaces that overlook Hemisfair Park and the Tower of the Americas.

We currently do not allow exhibits in our pre-function areas, however, if you have any other ideas for the usage of your pre-function space please communicate with your Event Manager and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
