Announcing the all new Albany Capital Center, an 82,000 square foot meeting and conference facility in downtown Albany, New York's historic capital city.
Construction of the facility is scheduled to begin in June 2014, and continue through mid-year 2016 when it is set to open. The Capital Center will be connected to the Empire State Plaza Convention Center and the Times Union Center arena, creating a meeting space triple the size of any other convention center in Upstate New York.
