COBO Center is Michigan's World Class meeting and convention facility. The 2.4 million square foot complex, located on the bank of the Detroit River, is the centerpiece of downtown Detroit's Civic Center. COBO Center offers convenience, comfort, service reliability and fine food. Overlooking the Detroit River and our international neighbor, Windsor Canada, our elegant banquet rooms and over 80 meeting rooms totaling 178,446 square feet equip COBO Center to accommodate capacities from 30 to 10,000. COBO Center also boasts one of the largest contiguous exhibit floor space in North America and two adjacent arenas (COBO Arena and Joe Louis Arena). COBO is physically linked to all downtown Detroit hotels and entertainment districts by the Detroit People Mover, the only elevated railway system of its kind in the United States.
COBO Center's physical capabilities are only exceeded by our unrivaled level of care and customer service. The management, staff and suppliers of COBO Center stand poised and ready to handle the unique demands of your special event, from the initial planning stages through the event's completion.
