Baton Rouge River Center

Located in downtown Baton Rouge along the banks of the Mississippi River, the Baton Rouge River Center's most recent expansion has transformed the downtown area. The entire complex, including the existing Arena and Theatre for the Performing Arts, as well as the new Exhibition Hall, includes more than 200,000 square feet of new and renovated space. The center also incorporates state-of-the-art exhibition, meeting rooms, and concession and kitchen facilities.

The 70,000 square-foot Exhibition Hall can be combined with the existing Arena to create more than 100,000 square-feet of contiguous exhibit space in addition to a total of 17 breakout meeting rooms.
