About the Duke Energy Convention Center


Originally opened in 1968, the Duke Energy Convention Center experienced its third Grand Opening in 2006 as the City of Cincinnati unveiled the results of the most recent expansion.  At that time, Global Spectrum was hired by the City to manage all aspects of the more than 750,000 square foot Duke Energy Convention Center. 


Located in the heart of exciting Downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, the Duke Energy Convention Center can be easily accessed from I-71, I-74, and I-75 and is only 10 minutes from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.  Featuring



over 750,000 square feet of exhibit, meeting, and entertainment space, we are the ideal destination for your next meeting, conference, convention, trade show, or banquet. 


Our versatile space can accommodate everything from a small meeting or intimate gathering to a large national convention or trade show.  The innovative design features of the Duke Energy Convention Center welcome creative event plans and our courteous and professional staff are here to ensure that your event is a success.


The Duke Energy Convention Center is flanked by more than $2 billion in new infrastructure, including the brand new Fountain Square entertainment district and more than 3,000 hotel rooms within three blocks of the Center.  Enjoy exemplary shopping, like Tiffany & Co. and Saks Fifth Avenue, world-class dining, like McCormick & Schmicks, and a great music and dance scene.
