Built in 1891, it was converted to use as a convention hall in 1993, and since then the Pennsylvania Convention Center has become one of the best event venues in the city. The center is known for hosting a variety of events including seminars, conferences, conventions, meetings, and other local events. Comprising meeting rooms, auditoriums, and the Grand Hall, this facility provides good amenities and a lovely staff that ensures each event's success. The Fancy Brigade Finale, Philadelphia Flower Show, and Philadelphia Auto Show take place here annually. This 93,000 square meters (1,000,000 square feet) space is a prime hub for major events.
