Albany offers a variety of convention, special event, sports, and creative venues for your next event. For larger events, the Empire State Plaza Convention Center is absolutely perfect for groups up to 1,500. The Times Union Center, one of the northeast's premier sports and special events arenas, has seating capacity of 6,000-17,000, and the Albany Capital Center will provide state-of-the-art meeting and convention space when it opens in early 2017. All three of these venues will be connected via enclosed walkways and will make up the Capital Complex, the largest meeting space in Upstate New York at 159,000 square feet.
With over 70 hotels in the county, there is space to accommodate groups to 1000.
