The Durham Convention Center has the facility, the staff, the services and the equipment to make each of their events a complete success. When Durham built the center twenty-five years ago, elected officials could only imagine the success of Durham's downtown in the last ten years. Whatever type of event you are planning, from a small board meeting to an elegant wedding, the Durham Convention Center's ample size and versatile space can be tailored to meet your needs perfectly. The first-class food and beverage capabilities allow the Durham Convention Center to provide custom menus, from continental breakfast buffets to 5-course galas. "The location is convenient for guests, along with our beautifully appointed ballrooms and a creative culinary staff that will make your special day memorable," says General Manager Jennifer Noble. "Our published menus are perfect examples of what we can offer that other halls can't. Our team of culinary professionals has over 30 years of experience in a variety of cuisines and can create specialty menus specifically designed for any event." Weddings are always memorable at the Durham Convention Center. The staff makes sure this process runs as smoothly as possible for the bride and her family. "After the date and room have been selected, we pair the bride with one of our event professionals," says Noble. "This person is dedicated to ensuring every detail is executed flawlessly." "We are proud to be the home site for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, an international event dedicated to the theatrical exhibition of nonfiction cinema," says Noble. "Each spring, Full Frame welcomes filmmakers and film lovers from around the world to historic downtown Durham, North Carolina, for a four-day, morning-to-midnight array of nearly 100 films, as well as discussions, panels, and Southern hospitality." In addition to FFDFF, DCC also hosts NC Comic Con, corporate meetings, fund raising galas, and sporting events. From weddings, to bar mitzvahs, to business conferences, DDC's staff has been willing to go the extra mile time and time again in Durham. Owned by both the City and County of Durham, the DCC offers in-house catering services, audio-visual, and up lighting for all its events, ensuring that your night will be one to remember.
