Long Beach Convention Center
The Long Beach Convention Center, formally known as the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center, is located on Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach, California. Built on the former site of the Long Beach Municipal Auditorium, which was demolished in 1975, the Convention Center is owned by the City of Long Beach and operated by SMG World, a company that manages more than 100 arenas, convention centers, theaters, and stadiums worldwide.

The Long Beach Convention Center is a huge multi-purpose venue, with more than 300,000 square feet of flexible floor area to accommodate a wide variety of events. It consists of an arena, two theaters, and 34 separate meeting rooms. Its location offers easy access to the city's hotel accommodations, restaurants, and shopping and it's within easy walking distance to the scenic, 5 1/2 mile 'Long Beach' on the Pacific Ocean. It is one of few facilities of its type located on the ocean.

Long Beach Arena
The first structure completed in the Convention Center complex, the arena is frequently used for concerts and other entertainment events as well as trade shows, conventions and other large gatherings. Depending on the seating configuration used, it can accommodate as many as 13, 609 individuals. It is also a popular site for sporting events, both professional and college level, with the capability to host both hockey matches and basketball games. During the 1984 Summer Olympic Games held in Los Angeles, the arena was a satellite venue where the volleyball and fencing competitions were held.

Planet Ocean
The exterior of the drum-shaped arena holds an 116,000 square foot mural, painted by world-famous muralist Robert Wyland, known as Plant Ocean. This was the 33rd of the so-called Wyland's Whaling Walls, of which there are 100 worldwide. It was dedicated on July 9, 1992, and was entered into the book of Guinness World Records as the world's largest mural. Gifted to the City of Long Beach by the artist, it pictures life-sized versions of the various sea life found in the ocean waters of Southern California, including whales (gray, blue, orca and pilot), dolphins, sea lions, sharks and a variety of other fish.

The Convention Center has two ballrooms: the Grand, which measures 20,456 square feet and seats 2,100 people and the Promenade, which has 13,200 square feet of floor space and seats 1,400.
