Plan a Charlotte trade show that impresses attendees and vendors alike.

Trade shows surpass expectations in Charlotte

It’s easy to understand why planners love the Charlotte Convention Center. With 280,000 square feet of exhibit space divisible into four halls, the 550,000-square-foot Convention Center offers exceptional flexibility in a prime location: the heart of Uptown Charlotte. This compact district boasts affordable hotels, group-friendly arts and entertainment sectors, diverse cultural attractions, and more than 200 restaurants, all within walking distance. And the city’s wealth of transportation options—everything from bike and ride shares to a light rail line—make navigating neighborhoods beyond Center City a breeze. The largest city between Washington, D.C. and Atlanta and located in a right-to-work state, Charlotte itself has become a central hub in the Southeast. Charlotte Douglas International Airport, just 7 miles from Uptown, sees more than 700 flights daily, and a growing interstate system connects thousands to the Queen City every day. With such a range of Center City amenities and easy accessibility, a trade show in Charlotte is one that attracts attention and attendees.
