The Raleigh Convention Center
The much-anticipated Raleigh Convention Center opened in the fall of 2008. The 500,000 square foot building will be an impressive backdrop for the NGS Conference in the States in May 2009. The convention center boasts high-tech capabilities such as state-of-the-art lighting and sound in each room and wireless internet access throughout the building.
The lobby welcomes visitors with floor-to-ceiling windows. The street level mezzanine offers easy access to all areas of the center and to the attached Raleigh Marriott City Center hotel. The spacious reception area will be an ideal location to meet friends and network with fellow genealogists.
For those who are driving to the conference, there is a 900-space attached parking garage plus more than 4,000 parking spaces within a 2-block radius of the center.
