Two things. Isn't the AsiaWorldExpo another convention center in Hong Kong?



For SF, I guess the Moscone Center...

AsiaWorld Expo is indeed the 2nd convention facility in Hong Kong. It's very new, and is trying to capture the outflow from the very crowded HKCEC.

McCormick Place, Chicago
Largest convention center in the US, 2.2 million sq ft of exhibit space built, another 470,000 sq ft under construction.





Many events for the 2016 Olympics will be hosted there if Chicago wins.

Las Vegas - 9.5 million square feet of convention and exhibit space

Architecturally, the convention centers in Vegas aren't very interesting, they're just really huge.

Las Vegas Convention Center - 3.2 million square feet (sorry Chicago)


Sands Expo Center - 1.8 million square feet


Mandalay Bay Convention Center - 1 million square feet (including the largest pillarless hotel ballroom in the U.S.)


Cashman Center - 483,000 square feet


Hotels with over 100,000 square feet of meeting facilities:
Balleys - 175,000 sq ft
Bellagio - 200,000 sq ft
Caesars - 240,000 sq ft
Marriott - 109,000 sq ft
Hilton - 200,000 sq ft
MGM - 501,000 - sq ft

Yea, the station wasn't even open yet last time I went back.

I didn't know it's purpose though, and now I do.

Yelp, where did I see it say that the McCormick place was the largest. Hmm. Must be old.

Yeah, I think McCormick was the largest not too long ago. Vegas CC was around only one million sq ft when I moved here in the early 1990's, but it more than tripled in size since then.
