Mayo Civic Center

The Mayo Civic Center is set to begin an estimated $85 million expansion project in early 2015 that will include a two-story convention center featuring an artistic wave-wall façade, a Grand Ballroom and 14 breakout rooms, pre-function areas, renovation of the Presentation Hall, an addition to the Rochester Civic Theater and new access to the Rochester Art Center. The new Grand Ballroom, at more than 38,000 square feet, will be the second largest in the state, and will have a ceiling height of 32 feet to accommodate the sophisticated production and AV requirements of today’s meeting planners. With a banquet capacity of more than 2,000 people, the ballroom will offer double the banquet capacity of the existing Exhibit Hall. The high-end finishes of the space will provide added aesthetic appeal, eliminating the need for the pipe-and-drape decorations that are currently used for events in the Exhibit Hall. The facility will also enhance its free wireless service to enable bandwidth adjustments to meet the needs of various events.
