      Description

      Cobo Center is a world-class meeting and convention facility, located along a beautifully restored international riverfront in the heart of a vibrant and transformed downtown Detroit.

      The center is in close proximity to exceptional restaurants, lively bars and pubs, three Las Vegas-style casinos and six new hotels. Cobo is physically linked to downtown Detroit hotels and entertainment districts by the Detroit People Mover, an elevated railway system.

      Cobo Center prides itself on its versatility. Our elegant banquet rooms and more than 80 meeting rooms comprise 178,446 square feet, and Cobo boasts one of the largest contiguous exhibit floor spaces in North America. We can accommodate groups from 30 to 10,000, and regularly host the nation's top meetings, events and conferences. They include the annual North American International Auto Show, the International G-7 Job Summit, the annual Society of Automotive Engineers International Congress, and the world's largest sit-down dinner, hosted by the Detroit NAACP Freedom Institute.

      These are exciting times for Cobo Center. The facility has embarked on a $278 million upgrade that will transform Cobo into a state-of-the-art facility that your organization will enjoy for years to come. This investment was made possible through a partnership between the City of Detroit, the State of Michigan, and the counties of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb. It reflects southeast Michigan's commitment to Cobo Center's future and its clients.

      We thank you for your continued support, and we know you'll be thrilled with what the future holds for Cobo Center.

Overlooking the Detroit River and our international neighbor, Windsor Canada, our elegant banquet rooms and over 80 meeting rooms totaling 178,446 square feet equip Cobo Center to accommodate capacities from 30 to 10,000. Cobo Center also boasts one of the largest contiguous exhibit floor space in North America and an adjacent arena (Joe Louis Arena).
