The San Jose Convention Center is the main convention center for the city of San Jose, California. It is located in close proximity to several others of San Jose's convention and cultural structures. Its formal name is the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, in recognition of former mayor Tom McEnery.

The convention center offers 143,000 square feet (13,300 m2) of exhibit space. Thirty-one meeting rooms are also offered, as are banquet facilities for some 5,000 persons. Including the South Hall, a permanent metal-framed fabric structure, it can be increased to a joint total of 223,000 square feet (20,700 m2).

Beginning in Summer 2011 the San Jose Convention Center began new construction to expand with a new additional 125,000 square feet.[1]

Team San Jose currently manages the facility and promotes it as a place to hold events and meetings to corporate, cultural, and many other organizations.

Among events hosted at the convention center is the Silicon Valley International Auto Show every January, Silicon Valley Comic Con in March, and FanimeCon Memorial day weekend in May. [2][3] The GENESIS 3 Super Smash Bros. tournament held its first two days at the Convention Center before moving to City National Civic for its final day. F8, a developer convention by Facebook, is being held there April 18-19th, 2017.
