Midland Convention Center

Located in the heart of downtown Midland, the Midland Convention Center provides the flexibility to accommodate meetings, conventions, trade shows, banquets, and any other possible need for space. Each year the facility hosts hundreds of events from small and intimate to large and formal. Previously the Exhibit Hall offered 12,500 square feet of column free exhibit space, capable of accommodating up to 800 for a banquet or 1,000 reserved seats for a concert or seminar. The Midland Convention Center is currently closed for demolition later this summer in order to build a new facility scheduled for completion early fall of 2019. Adjacent to the Midland Convention Center is Centennial Plaza, an open-air amphitheater amidst beautiful landscaping. When an event calls for an outdoor setting, the Centennial Plaza provides an ideal location for public festivals, family reunions, and private weddings.
