Convention Center


As the world's leading convention center design architects, we understand that a large civic project is often the most significant investment a community will make. Over 240,000,000 people interact with our designs every year. This is a great responsibility that energizes our approach to transformative projects which enrich, uplift and inspire the human spirit.

tvsdesign re-invented the convention center, focusing on emerging trends in bringing people together in both business and civic life. Through this focus, we have designed four of the top five convention centers in North America and three of the most important centers in China. Our projects re-envision what a convention center looks like, how it works and what market it serves -- all with public works budgets and challenging schedules.


Together, we design the most significant investment a community can make in its future.
