Opening to the public in June 1994, this 129,000 S.F. facility features a 15,000 S.F. conference center area, 30,000 S.F. of exhibit space, a multi-purpose rotunda lobby, a 15,000 S.F. banquet hall, and 18 meeting rooms. At a cost of $33 million, this investment helped lay the foundation for redevelopment efforts in Downtown Akron.

The Knight Center attracts a variety of users including trade shows, consumer shows, conferences, conventions, and special community events.


An iconic feature of Akron's vibrant cityscape, the John S. Knight Center has been welcoming convention planners, tradeshow exhibitors and event attendees to the heart of downtown since 1994. We are northeast Ohio's premier meeting venue.
