Cleveland Convention Center

Located in the heart of a vibrant downtown on the shores of Lake Erie, the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland includes 225,000 gross square feet of Class A exhibit space divisible into three exhibition halls, 30 state-of-the-art meeting rooms, an expansive truck loading dock, and a 32,000-square-foot, column-free ballroom with spectacular views of Cleveland’s lakefront. The Grand Ballroom, along with all meeting rooms, include the latest high-tech audiovisual equipment along with a unique, individualized lighting grid controlled by the latest in iPad technology.

The adjacent Global Center for Health Innovation is the only facility in the world that displays the future of health and healthcare presented on four themed floors. The Global Center will serve health and healthcare innovation, technology, education and commerce through state-of-the-art spaces, programs and virtual offerings.

SMG, the nation’s largest and most experienced convention center and facility management firm, assumed management operations for the Cuyahoga County-owned Global Center for Health Innovation and the Cleveland Convention Center in December, 2013.

SMG manages 233 facilities throughout North America, including 72 convention centers, 71 arenas, 60 theaters and performance venues, nine stadiums, and 23 equestrian centers. Founded in 1977, SMG is the industry leader in exhibition venues throughout the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean and will bring experience and significant connections to national conventions and trade shows within the convention industry.

Since 1977, SMG has brought a wealth of facility management and operations experience and expertise to more than 230 facilities worldwide, including regional operations in Akron, Canton, Columbus, Pittsburgh, and Detroit. For convention planners nationwide, the SMG name carries the promise of a professionally managed facility and unparalleled expertise in all phases of convention planning. The SMG brand instills confidence in national clients as well as fostering repeat business from event planners looking to rotate their conventions around the region or around the country.

From corporate events to major conventions and tradeshows, the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland is the perfect venue when you #MeetinCLE.

SMG, the world leader in venue management, marketing and development, was founded in 1977 with the management of our first facility, the Louisiana Superdome. We soon grew to manage convention centers, exhibition halls and trade centers, arenas, stadiums, performing arts centers, theaters, and specific-use venues such as equestrian centers. SMG’s clients benefit from the company’s depth of resources and its unparalleled expertise, leadership, and creative problem-solving. Our successful growth has been built on the many partnerships, relationships, and resources we have developed with our clients — both municipal and private. This unique combination of resources, relationships, and expertise has allowed SMG to define and refine the industry throughout its history. Our ownership and team of dedicated corporate support personnel make us unrivaled in the field of private facility management.
