Congratulations to the Chattanooga Convention Center for being an "Editors Hot Pick" in Convention South magazine!
The Chattanooga Convention Center, located in the heart of downtown, offers a total of 185,000 square feet. Column-free exhibit space totals 100,800 square feet (total of 4 halls). There are 21 meeting rooms ranging in size from 812 to 1,800 square feet, and they can be configured to space ranging in size from 1,624 to 5,400 square feet. Pre-function space is at 40,000 square feet. There are 11 loading docks and the facility is on one level.
The Chattanooga Marriott Hotel with 341 rooms and 7,500 square feet of meeting space physically adjoins the Chattanooga Convention Center. An additional 1,450 first-class rooms are "connected" to the center via the city's free downtown electric shuttle. The shuttle route also includes access to restaurants, attractions, shopping areas, and much more. Located around the city's perimeter are an additional 6,200 guest rooms.
The Chattanooga Convention Center is in the nation's top ten "green buildings" and is the first center in the nation to incorporate "day lighting" technology. Properly called "photovoltaic" lighting, this technology allows sunlight to filter in through 30-foot ceiling openings and complement the building's artificial light. This lighting has proven "mood-enhancing" capabilities. A high-tech business center, high-speed Internet access, and networking capabilities are available for conventions, trade shows, and meetings.
