Sweeney Convention Center has 22,000 square feet of space for exhibitions, banquets, and meetings. The center features flexible seating and exhibition arrangements in its 10,000-square-foot main floor area; up to 80 booths, banquets for 700 people, and theater-style seating for 1,200 people can be accommodated in this space.
