Unique and authentic touches elevate the Convention Center. Tacoma's citywide hospitality provides a genuine Northwest experience, while the modern, sleek venue includes glass-enclosed areas with a spectacular suspended stairway and views of Mt. Rainier and the Tacoma skyline.

    The GTCTC was affordable, the staff was very helpful and attentive to all of our needs on my daughter's special day.
    The GTCTC coordinator helped us with room layouts and gave us ideas.

    The Aramark catering was outstanding, and the food was also 5 star. I felt like I was eating at a 5 star restaurant the food was so good.
    Salmon was cooked perfectly and the prime rib was fork tender.
