The Reno-Sparks Convention Center is a convention center in the western United States, located in Reno, Nevada.[1][2] Opened 54 years ago in 1965 as Centennial Coliseum,[1] it hosted the Big Sky Conference basketball tournament and also hosts boxing matches.[4]

Southwest of the airport, its elevation at street level is approximately 4,450 feet (1,355 m) above sea level.

Facilities

The main exhibit space is 381,000 square feet (35,400 m2), which can be divided into five halls. Freight access is provided via a set of nineteen freight doors, eight of which are drivable, and of which one is a hangar-style door that measures 39 feet (12 m) wide by 32 feet (10 m) tall.

In addition, the Mt. Rose Ballroom, a 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2) column-free space, can be divided into seven meeting rooms. A total of 53 meeting rooms, of capacities ranging from fifty to over three thousand, are available within the complex.
