It has a 36,000-square-foot (3,300 m2) fully carpeted and recently renovated exhibition hall, a 12,000-square-foot (1,100 m2) meeting room, a 410-seat performing arts theatre which can also host business meetings and presentations, and 434 parking spaces. In 2009 the center added a 2,500 sqft Executive Conference Suite that includes three rooms, high end audio visual capabilities and a private service pantry and reception space. Meydenbauer Center hosts over 300 events each year including conventions, corporate meetings and events, fund raising events for local non-profit organizations and a variety of consumer and trade shows.
