Where groups get together

Every part of the DECC exists to be a gathering space for people. We’ve put together a plethora of resources for planning, which are attached below. The DECC provides two ballrooms, 30 meeting rooms and 120,000 square feet of exhibit space. The entire complex has been designed to suit every group and is barrier-free in compliance with the ADA.
