In the heart of downtown Peoria lies
the SMG-managed Peoria Civic Center.
Boasting more than 900,000 square feet
of meeting space, it is the largest exhibition facility in downstate Illinois. The
110,000-square-foot exhibition hall is one
of the most versatile offerings, as it can
be broken into four separate event spaces
or utilized as one. Today, the exhibition
hall is routinely used for a number of
consumer shows, conventions, concerts
and sporting events. The Peoria Civic
Center is also home to an 11,330-seat
arena, a theater with a recently upgraded audio system and seating for 2,196,
a 26,550-square-foot ballroom and 25
additional meeting rooms.
The Peoria area has over 4,000 overnight
rooms ready for your arrival. With four
hotels within walking distance and a multitude of others within a short drive, your
attendees will enjoy the close proximity
of their overnight accommodations to the
Peoria Civic Center.
