In one of America’s most trendy cities, there is little doubt its convention center would be one of the most versatile and innovative in the industry. Originally completed in 1986, the Big Apple’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, with now 2.1 million square feet of space, hosts 80 conventions and tradeshows and 70 other special events annually.
In addition to its four levels of nine separate self-contained halls, able to accommodate mixed events of any size, the stunning 15-story glass and steel Crystal Palace offers breathtaking views of the Hudson River, providing a perfect space for a gala gathering, press conference or other events. This entire dramatic space has been renovated, including the replacement of every pane of glass, giving it a well-deserved up-to-date look.This maturing Center received a multi-million dollar facelift, enhancing its appeal to woo the city’s convention and tradeshow traffic, revitalizing Manhattan’s West Side. Completed in 2014, every inch of this facility has been included in the five-year renovation, from the installation of a 6.75 acre green roof to its interior decor.
Being all made up and dressed to kill, the Javits Center is poised to become as sought-after as the city it occupies.
