ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 28, 2017) — The Anaheim Convention Center this week officially opened ACC North, its largest and most significant expansion in nearly two decades.

The expansion, the seventh in the center’s 50-year history, adds 200,000 square feet of flexible space for trade shows, conventions, meetings, galas and more. With a new total of 1.8 million square feet, the Anaheim Convention Center solidifies its spot as the largest convention center on the West Coast.

“This is a transformative event for the Anaheim Convention Center,” said Tom Morton, executive director of Anaheim’s Convention Sports & Entertainment Department. “Not only is this our largest expansion since 2000, it is one of the most significant in terms of the features and innovation it brings to Anaheim.”

ACC North’s striking, modern design adds a highly visible presence on one of the Anaheim Resort district’s most traveled streets.

The building’s design is inspired by ocean waves and the California coastline. Even the carpet is designed to mirror the palm trees that line the street just outside the dramatic floor to ceiling windows.

ACC North includes a large ballroom, a new parking structure and a 10,000-square-foot balcony overlooking the Disneyland Resort, where conference and meeting attendees can view the nightly Disneyland fireworks show.

The Anaheim Convention Center hosts an average of 1 million attendees a year, a number expected to increase with the expansion.

When these visitors come to events at the convention center, they generate revenue for the city. This benefits our neighborhoods by providing money for public safety, parks, libraries and more.
