An Unconventional Convention Center 

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, individual breakout spaces, LEED certification and vertical design. Perhaps the convention center’s most surprising differentiator is something you don’t normally associate with convention facilities: upscale, inventive food. The award-winning-chef-inspired menu goes way beyond the standard fare, rivaling that of any five-star resort.
