Convention Center

A convention center (American English; conference centre outside the USA)[1] is a large building that is designed to hold a convention, where individuals and groups gather to promote and share common interests. Convention centers typically offer sufficient floor area to accommodate several thousand attendees. Very large venues, suitable for major trade shows, are sometimes known as exhibition centres. Convention centers typically have at least one auditorium and may also contain concert halls, lecture halls, meeting rooms, and conference rooms. Some large resort area hotels include a convention center. Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Conference Centre, Dubai and Covention and Events Centre, Estel Hotel, Berlin, are two of the most impressive convention hotels.[2]
