Located in the heart of downtown Midland, the Midland Center provides the flexibility to accommodate meetings, conventions, trade shows, banquets, and a variety of specialty events. Each year the facility hosts hundreds of events from small and intimate to large and formal.
The Exhibit Hall offers 12,500 square feet of column free exhibit space, capable of accommodating up to 860 for a banquet or 1,200 reserved seats for a concert or seminar. For trade show and display needs, the Exhibit Hall can be customized to accommodate up to 79 ten-foot square booths. The Hall can also be subdivided into three smaller areas and utilized simultaneously, affording comfort and privacy for smaller events.
On the Center’s lower level, four meeting rooms are available for gatherings from 20 to 200. Two larger meeting rooms are individually equipped with sound systems for your amplification needs and all rooms are equipped with top of the line video projectors and projection screens.
Adjacent to the Midland Center is Centennial Plaza, an open-air amphitheater amidst beautiful landscaping. When an event calls for an outdoor setting, the Centennial Plaza provides an ideal location for public festivals, family reunions, and private weddings. The Plaza is home to several festivals throughout the year including the Arts Council’s annual Celebration of the Arts, Tall City Blues Festival, and the Midland Chamber of Commerce’s Star Spangled Salute. It has also played host to other outdoor concerts featuring such artists as Pat Green, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and Jerry Jeff Walker. Centennial Plaza also played host to George W. Bush as he gave his last speech before being sworn in as the 43rd President of the United States and was also the location of the first public address he made after leaving office.
