The remarkably versatile facilities of the Alliant Energy Center campus are a top choice for conventions, consumer shows, national tours, family shows, and more. The Alliant Energy Center is an award-winning, multi-building complex comprised of the 255,000-sq. ft. Exhibition Hall, the 10,000 seat Veterans Memorial Coliseum, an Arena, and nine modern agricultural buildings. The Center welcomes more than one million people attending more than 500 events annually, ranging from local meetings and banquets to large sporting events and major concerts. Exhibition Hall is ideal for trade shows large and small, and is versatile enough to host concerts and family shows as well. Veterans Memorial Coliseum is completely modernized and includes luxury suites and distinctive concourses. Willow Island, the Center's 29-acre natural space, hosts an array of outdoor events.
All events on the Center's 164-acre campus take advantage of on-site amenities including expansive parking, fine catering, and high-tech A/V capabilities. The Clarion Suites Hotel is directly attached to Exhibition Hall with a climate-controlled walkway. The combination of these features and an unparalleled staff has won the Alliant Energy Center consecutive Prime Site awards from Facilities Magazine.
