Lansing: Convention Facilities
Meeting and convention planners can choose among several facilities in the Lansing area. The Lansing Center is situated downtown on the Grand River and Riverwalk near the Capitol Complex. It adjoins the Radisson Hotel and a 1,600-car parking area via an enclosed walkway. Accommodating up to 5,600 people and 71,000 square feet of exhibition space, the exhibit halls and meeting rooms function as separate units or in multiple combinations. In downtown Lansing, the Center for the Arts adjoins an art gallery and provides barrier-free space for functions with up to 240 participants.
The Breslin Center on the campus of Michigan State University (MSU) is a 254,000-square-foot facility offering 17,500 square feet of exhibition space, 30,000 maximum square feet of concourse area for product display, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems. MSU's Pavilion Agriculture and Livestock Education Center offers over 77,000 square feet in its facilities for trade shows, exhibitions, demonstrations, and livestock auctions.
Lansing-area hotels and motels, containing about 4,000 rooms for lodgings, also offer banquet and meeting rooms. One example is the Sheraton Lansing Hotel, with seven ballrooms and several rooms and suites that can handle from 10 to 1,500 guests in spaces varying from 480 to 8,600 square feet.
