Mayo Civic Center Expansion

The newly-expanded, beautifully-modernized Mayo Civic Center is now hosting more conventions, meetings, conferences, trade shows, entertainment events, weddings, and other large celebrations than ever before!

With a convention center addition completed in spring of 2017, the Mayo Civic Center offers more than 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting, exhibit, and event space, ideal for many different industries and events, such as medical and technical conferences, large business meetings, and healthcare summits.

Now able to accommodate two 1,000-attendee events simultaneously, the center features Minnesota's largest ballroom, with seating capacity of more than 4,000 classroom-style or 2,000 banquet-style. In addition, the center now features 23 breakout rooms, a brand-new production kitchen, stunning pre-function areas with views of the Zumbro River and downtown Rochester, and the Riverfront Plaza, an outdoor reception venue. The center's venues are all designed to accommodate the sophisticated production, AV, and wireless service requirements of today's meeting planners.
