The Raleigh Convention Center was built back in 2008 and has already housed hundreds of high school graduates, as well as been the location for several major conventions in the area. It can hold an event for anywhere from 50 to 5,000 people! It is about 500,000 sq ft including Ballrooms, Exhibition Hall, a Lobby at Street Level, and in close proximity to hotels, Red Hat Amphitheater and Duke Energy Center.
One of the major Conventions that they host is Animazement! Last year there were over ten thousand people who attended! You may have noticed a ton of people in costume walking around Raleigh during Memorial Weekend. They were cosplay attendees going to the convention.
