City Side Convention Center

60,000 square feet. 60,000 options.

Added in 1990, the DECC’s City Side Convention Center was built to handle a wide range of events including social and business events; state, national and international conventions; and everything in between. From the Lake Superior Ballroom with its views of the Duluth’s skyline to the ten meeting rooms and 15,000 square foot Edmund Fitzgerald Exhibit Hall, a more accommodating venue would be hard to find.

Lake Superior Ballroom

For those looking to host bigger parties, look no further than the Lake Superior Ballroom.

The beautifully appointed 26,000 square foot ballroom will seat 1,300 people for dinner or break into five separate meeting rooms. The flexibility and functionality of the Lake Superior Ballroom provides space for a general session and luncheon during a convention.  It is an ideal location for wedding receptions and other large social events.


Edmund Fitzgerald Exhibit Hall

Edmund Fitzgerald Hall is comprised of 15,000 square feet of the finest expo space. Used by conventions and expos, the hall is ideally located on the first floor near registration, meeting rooms and connects with Pioneer Hall and DECC Arena for additional exhibit space.
