The Spokane Convention Center is committed to being a socially responsible community partner. We work hard to do our part to help preserve our environment. Our facility was built on the site of the 1974 World’s Fair – the first environmentally themed World’s Fair and it is only fitting that when the Spokane Public Facilities District decided to expand, the Board elected to build a green building on the World’s Fair site. We are pleased that the Exhibit Hall is a Silver LEED® certified building by the US Green Building Council. Our pro-environment efforts span across our campus and we strive to be green through our sustainable practices. And if you haven’t heard…. Spokane is Near Nature. Near Perfect.
