 The George R. Brown Convention Center was opened on the east side of downtown Houston amid great civic celebration on September 26, 1987. The sleek 100-foot-high building has a futuristic-looking design with state-of-the-art details. On July 28, 2001 ground was broken on a joint project to expand the convention center and build an adjacent 1,200-room convention headquarters hotel. The Brown grew from 1,150,000 to 1,800,000 square feet with three added exhibit halls and 57 meeting rooms for a total of 100. Expansion was completed December 3, 2003. Today, The George R. Brown Convention Center is managed by the Houston First Corporation.
