Located in the heart of downtown Midland, the Midland Convention Center site has served as the city’s meeting space since 1882. After many buildings called the site home, the City of Midland constructed a convention center in 1980. While developing plans for the renovation of the existing Midland Center, it was found to be more cost effective to demolish the facility and replace it with a new $42.8 million convention center. The new convention center will feature 20,000 sf for exhibit hall space, 3,000 sf for small meetings and 6,000 sf that will function as a ballroom and large meeting space. It was important that the building be able to host multiple large and small concurrent events. In addition to the meeting space, the facility will have an expanded lobby and pre-function space, kitchen facilities and state-of-the-art audio/visual and technology capabilities.
