Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas

There’s a lot about the city of Irving that defies convention – including the Irving Convention Center itself. Clients love its proximity to the airport, 20 individual breakout spaces that supplement the exhibit hall and ballrooms, and 85 nearby hotel options. Plus, the center was awarded LEED Silver certification for using reclaimed water for landscaping, cooling systems, and other non-potable applications. Perhaps the center’s most surprising differentiator is something you don’t normally associate with convention facilities: upscale, inventive food. The chef–Inspired menu goes way beyond the standard fare. With its fabulous food, unique design, convenient location and the kind of attention to detail that you would expect in a five-star hotel, the Irving Convention Center has become a coveted meeting place and destination for events.

Next door to the Irving Convention Center, blockbuster movies, live music, libations, sweet treats and great eats keep patrons entertained all day and all night at the brand-new Toyota Music Factory. The Live Nation Pavilion concert venue anchors the complex and has attracted ceaseless crowds since its September 2017 inauguration. Plus, local live music is featured at the Texas Lottery Plaza. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and more than 20 other bars and restaurants give visitors a plethora of options in dining and entertainment. From cutting-edge sushi and craft cocktails to down-home burgers, fries and beer, you’ll find it all at the Toyota Music Factory.
