Salt Lake City Convention Center Visiting Guide: Architecture and History

One of the most sophisticated modern buildings in the Salt Lake City, UT is the Convention Center. Located in the heart of the city near the downtown area, it is considered to be one of the ideal places for meetings, conferences, exhibitions and any public events.

The original building was built in the late nineteenth century by famous architect Richard Kletting. In its early days, it was equipped with a theater hall, dance hall as well as a racing track. However, the whole structure was destroyed when a fire broke out in the building in 1910. In the late 1960s, it was renovated completely and became a center for jazz musical concerts and various sporting activities. However the structure was demolished in 1994. Two years later, a convention center was architected that stands tall in the place and boasts of a state-of the art conferencing and meeting facilities and exhibition space. It features a grand ballroom, several banquet halls and over 65 meeting rooms and hosts a number of regional, national and international events.

Designed by renowned architect Kent Seko, the architecture and decor of the new Convention Center is appealing which infuses the historical chandeliers and carpets and blends it perfectly with modern interiors. The most striking element of the building is a 570 feet glass-wall that offers a great view of the exhibit space. The building is equipped with modern technology such as wireless networking, audio-visual aids, high-speed internet access and all the amenities required to organize high-end meetings and conferences. There is also a catering unit, a three-level parking area and elevator access.
