March 13: Following Governor Cooper’s Executive Order prohibiting mass gatherings to limit the spread of the COVID-19, Durham Convention Center will not host events until after April 22, 2020.
 
The majority of our administrative team are now working remotely and are available during regular business hours, 8:30AM-5:30PM. We are equipped to provide virtual tours and promise to deliver the same professional planning experience that our clients have come to expect.
 
March through May is peak demand on the convention industry in Durham. We encourage the support of our local businesses as they are critical to our city’s workforce and are greatly impacted by the current environment.
 
During this time of the elimination of mass gatherings in North Carolina, the venue will be thoroughly disinfected. We look forward to welcoming our guests back!
