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.
