The Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center
Our trademark glass walls, breathtaking mountain and water views, impressive architectural details and high quality interiors anchor us in the heart of a vibrant city. Just a short drive south of Seattle, the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center is the second largest meeting location in the Pacific Northwest. Surrounded by the beauty of the Northwest, the GTCTC offers an impressive selection of usable event space including our 50,000 square-foot column-free exhibition hall, 25,000 square feet of ballroom & meeting space and more than 42,000 square feet of additional event space.
The GTCTC is located within walking distance of over 400 hotel rooms (more than 2,200 rooms located in the nearby Tacoma region), and is also surrounded by world-class museums, impressive dining, shopping, day spas, art, golf and other attractions for event attendees to enjoy.
We believe meetings, special events and conventions should run seamlessly. To make sure we do our part, you will work with a dedicated on site Event Services Coordinator to help coordinate all of your event needs. Each member of our Event Services department has impressive attention to detail and takes pride in making your events run like clock-work. When you book your event at the GTCTC, count on first class customer service, high-levels of event coordination assistance and recognizable services and vendors to help make your event a great success.
"Ours is a very controlled chaos with a lot of variables. We doubled our crowd expectations in Tacoma and the staff at GTCTC met each challenge with great smiles and great attitudes. They helped make our stay a complete success and a pleasure! After crossing the country over 4 months, GTCTC is our MVP!"
