About the Anaheim Convention Center
Anaheim Convention Center (convention center arena).
Anaheim first became a meetings and conventions destination in 1967 with the construction of the domed Arena which stands on Katella Avenue. Since those early days, the Anaheim Convention Center has gone through 5 major expansion projects plus several cosmetic renovations to update the Center. Each expansion added another major exhibit hall plus meeting space. The last major expansion completed in the year 2000 resulted in a complete transformation of the Anaheim Convention Center and surrounding campus. The Anaheim Convention Center Grand Plaza which is expected to be completed in January 2013 will offer meeting planners the opportunity for large outdoor gatherings including alfresco dining, concerts, receptions, exhibitions, meetings and more. The Grand Plaza’s singular design will make it unique among outdoor event venues and extremely versatile to accommodate almost any event.
