Convention & Exhibition Centers

Delivering a better experience for the convention industry and its customers begins with the convergence of beauty, function, urban integration and sustainability.

For 40 years, Populous has been recognized as world leaders in the planning, design and delivery of public assembly facilities. In 1999, Populous added its Convention Center Practice specifically for the planning and design of convention and exhibition centers, along with industry veterans and experienced design professionals who are committed solely to this building type.

Our annual Imagine That Workshop draws industry leaders from all over North America to explore trends and imagine ways to better position convention facilities for the future. No other firm offers this connection with the industry and the future. In addition, Populous’ proprietary Experience Audit Program was developed to measure customer experience, so our convention facilities can better meet their needs. Because of this specialized focus, we are on top of the issues and trends driving the design of today’s convention center, exhibition and tradeshow facilities.

We approach convention center design from the viewpoint that our work should enable your business. Recognizing these buildings are intended to sell, we look for ways to maximize operational efficiencies, connect your guests with your city, and enhance the customer experience. Satisfied customers will return again and again which translates into more revenue for your city.
