Meeting Planning in Detroit, MI
Cobo Conference & Exhibition Center
Located on the waterfront, Detroit's COBO Center serves as the centerpiece of the city's meetings and events venues. The massive 2.4 million square foot complex provides ample room for up to 10,000 people in a convenient and picturesque location. With stunning views of the banks of the Detroit River, the center has 80 meeting rooms that comprise 178,446 square feet of the facility's floor space. Over 700,000 square feet of exhibit space provide for one of the largest continuous exhibit floor plans in North America. Adjacent facilities include the 12,191-seat COBO Arena and the 20,525-seat Joe Louis Arena.
The COBO Center boasts numerous amenities, including catering by ARAMARK, and audio-visual equipment. Additionally, 1,000 indoor parking spaces and 1,200 rooftop parking spaces are available. However, guests without a car will find transportation to and from the center easy, as People Mover, Detroit's public transportation rail system, has an indoor station at the center.
Widely considered one of the best convention centers in the Midwest, the COBO Center has hosted a variety of top-tier conventions and events. The G-7 Summit Committee, annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) and annual Society of Automotive Engineers International Congress convention are just a few of the high-profile events that have chosen the COBO Center as their prime meeting location.
