PROVO, Utah – The Utah Valley Convention Center opened May 12 in Provo. More than 200 people attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony, including Utah Lieutenant Governor Greg Bell.
The 83,578-square-foot LEED Silver facility is the largest meeting space in Provo. Construction began two years ago with the intent of making the design, construction, operation and maintenance environmentally friendly.
“It’s truly unique. We have windows, everywhere,” said Tennille Wanner, director of sales and marketing. “We have beautiful views. It’s something unlike any convention center in the area. It’s an opportunity to hold great meetings in a very quaint historic downtown that is really starting to turn around and thrive.”
The $42 million facility features a 19,620-square-foot exhibit hall, a 16,894-square-foot ballroom, 10,225 square feet of breakout space and a 5,553-square-foot rooftop garden. Conference center guests can stay at the 330-room Provo Marriott Hotel and Conference Center across the street.
