The push to build an entirely new convention and exhibition space in Boston began in the late 1990s, when Boston’s existing spaces were no longer large enough for some of the popular conferences and conventions. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center opened in its current form in 2004, to great acclaim. Not only does the flexible space meet the needs of some of the largest exhibitions in the world, but it is beautiful and technologically advanced, as well, containing a grand ballroom with waterfront views, WiFi and cellular service throughout the space, and a video wall / media tower, all wrapped in a modern building designed by noted architect Rafael Viñoly.
