With a growing population and presence on the world stage, Salt Lake City is becoming home to more and more businesses, people, and major events. Many of these take place in the downtown area, and involve today’s subject: the Salt Palace Convention Center.
Located one block west of Main Street in the heart of downtown, the Salt Palace Convention Center, or the Salt Palace as it is known locally, has massive meeting spaces and exhibit halls as well as private offices. The facility hosts everything from Salt Lake Comic Con, the second largest in the United States, to RootsTech Conventions, from concerts to state political events. It covers 679,000 square feet of space, which can be flexibly tailored to attendee needs. You know there’s an event occurring at the Salt Palace when your lunchtime crowds are larger than usual at City Creek Center and other local restaurants around the downtown core.
The Salt Palace was originally constructed in 1969, but 48 years later it has changed into something else entirely, with new spaces and a complete renovation of the interior and exterior. It is named after Utah’s longest-serving governor in the state’s history, Calvin L. Rampton, an attorney and businessman born and raised in Davis County, just to the north of Salt Lake City.
The Salt Palace is owned governed by Salt Lake County, in addition to several other public venues and meeting spaces. It’s a great space to gather, an excellent addition to the Salt Lake City skyline, and in a very convenient location. We enjoy taking clients to and from the facility on a regular basis, for whatever the occasion.
