Rhode Island Convention Center an ASM Global Managed Facility

Nestled in the heart of downtown Providence, the Rhode Island Convention & Entertainment Complex consists of three multi-use facilities: the beautiful Rhode Island Convention Center, spacious Dunkin' Donuts Center, and historic Veterans Memorial Auditorium, all ideal for trade shows, receptions, meetings and more. The RICC and DDC are connected by a striking glass structure and are linked via skywalk to the 564-room Omni Providence hotel and the Providence Place Mall.

Resembling a modern warehouse with walls of windows and neutral colors, the Rhode Island Convention Center features a 100,000-square-foot exhibition hall equipped with electricity, telephone, computer, compressed air, water and drainage capabilities, as well as a 20,000-square-foot ballroom and 23 meeting rooms. The convention center features in-house food and audio-visual services, teleconferencing capabilities and free wireless Internet. The center is connected to a 2,400-spot parking garage and attached via skywalk to the Providence Place Mall and to the 564-room Omni Providence hotel, which offers an additional 22,877 square feet of meeting space.

The 1,900-seat Veterans Memorial Auditorium (The Vets), a historic performing arts venue, is known for its unique combination of size and intimacy, superb acoustics and great sight lines. The Vets is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located adjacent to the Rhode Island Convention Center, the Dunkin' Donuts Center is a premier events arena and home to the AHL Providence Bruins and Big East PC Friars. The 31,000-square-foot center's meeting areas include a 4,000-square-foot backstage green room, 9,000-square-foot lobby, 3,652-square-foot restaurant, 923-square-foot North Meeting Room, 922-square-foot South Meeting Room with private elevator, 372-square-foot Boardroom overlooking Sabin Street and 648-square-foot Banquet Room. The center can just as easily accommodate large events of up to 13,000 people as smaller meetings at one of its intimate restaurants, boardrooms or party suites.
