Fort Worth Convention Center


Since 1968, the Fort Worth Convention Center & Arena has hosted thousands of major national and international events that include sports, concerts, conventions and trade shows.

Owned and operated by the City of Fort Worth, the Convention Center was significantly expanded in 2003. It is the premier event space in downtown Fort Worth and one of the best in the Southwest. Western heritage and hospitality meets modern culture and sophistication in this fast-growing metropolitan city that boasts one of the most walkable downtowns in the U.S., a renowned cultural arts district and a historic Stockyards district.
