With 723,000 square feet of exhibit space, Cobo Center boasts one of the largest contiguous exhibit floor spaces in North America and is the 17th largest convention center in the country. Built by the City of Detroit, it was originally opened in 1960 and named Cobo Hall in honor of former Detroit Mayor Albert E. Cobo.
Cobo Center offers convenience, comfort, service reliability and fine food. Overlooking the Detroit River and Windsor Canada, our elegant banquet rooms and over 100 meeting rooms totaling 200,000 square feet equip Cobo Center to accommodate capacities from 25 to 2,500.
Cobo is physically linked to all downtown Detroit hotels and entertainment districts by the Detroit People Mover, Detroit’s elevated railway system, and a station on the third floor of Cobo Center.
