We have 300,000 sq. ft. of convention space for breed judging and events and will be holding our Group and Best in Show judging on the main stage in the historic Arie Crown Theater.


We are in the process of contracting for an additional 100,000 sq. ft. of space for additional special events and have plenty of space for concurrent specialties.  Please contact me to discuss how we can help make your National or Regional Specialty an amazing success!
