About Houston


George R. Brown Convention CenterHouston is home to two major convention facilities -- the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB) and NRG Park.

The GRB hosts dozens of major conventions each year that draw hundreds of thousands of attendees to the 2 million-square-foot facility. The 2 million-square-foot GRB is directly connected to two major convention center hotels -- the 1,200-room Hilton Americas-Houston and the 1,000-room Marriott Marquis.

The GRB hosts major corporate and association meetings, tradeshows, athletic competitions, consumer-oriented events and shows and more.

NRG Park includes the 706,000-square-foot NRG Center convention facility, the 72,000-seat NRG Stadium and the 350,000-square-foot NRG Arena.

Between these major convention facilities and area hotels, Houston plays host to more than 300 meetings and conventions annually representing more than 650,000 attendees.

Houston First Corporation, the city’s destination marketing organization, books most of these events working with meeting planners and organizations across the country and around the world. Houston First also operates the GRB and several major theaters and other facilities in the city.
