Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center

The HBGCC, built as part of the 1968 HemisFair and expanded three times since, is now a beautifully decorated and spacious facility with 1.3 million square feet.

Facility features include:

67 meeting rooms
4 exhibit halls with over 440,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space
3 elegant ballrooms including Ballroom C with approximately 40,000 sq. ft.
Full service UPS Business Center
36 loading docks, including 24 covered docks
WiFi connectivity
Compressed air, electricity, water and drainage available in the exhibit halls

The HBGCC complex also features the Lila Cockrell Theatre, a 2,307-seat Performing Arts Theatre. The Alamodome and more than 13,000 of the City’s downtown hotel rooms (over 42,000 citywide) are within minutes and walking distance as well as restaurants and entertainment.

The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center is located in downtown San Antonio along the banks of the San Antonio RiverWalk.

The facility is the central component of the city’s successful convention industry. The Center, named for the late U.S. Congressman Henry B. González, hosts more than 300 events each year with over 750,000 convention delegates from around the world.

The original convention center was built as part of HemisFair ’68 by a joint venture of two general contractors Darragh & Lyda Inc. of San Antonio, Texas and H. A. Lott Inc. of Houston, Texas, but has been significantly altered and expanded since then. Today it is a 1,300,000 square feet state-of-the-art facility with 192,000 sq ft of meeting space, 3 ballrooms, 4 contiguous exhibit halls totaling over 440,000 sq ft, and the adjacent 2,319 seat Lila Cockrell Theatre, a performing arts venue, which is part of the original construction.
