The Mayo Civic Center expansion will nearly double the space at MCC, to more than 200,000 square feet of function space, enough to host two 1,000-person conventions simultaneously or 4,000 attendees for a single event.

Major enhancements include:

• A new 40,000 square foot Grand Ballroom that offers a seating capacity of more than 4,000 and is divisible into two or three smaller ballrooms.
• A 7,000 square foot, state-of-the-art banquet production kitchen and expanded food service facility that supports the catering of multiple simultaneous events. The new kitchen features its own loading dock.
• The creation of a beautiful 7,500 square foot outdoor Riverfront Plaza adjacent to the Zumbro River. The Plaza can be used as additional space for convention registrations or social events.
• The construction of 14 new meeting rooms, bringing the center's total number of meeting rooms to 23.
