For conferences, the Long Beach Convention Center offers more than 400,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space. The International Code Council will be taking full advantage of that space when the 2024 Annual Conference, Expo and Committee Action Hearings kick off on October 20 and is expected to be the biggest yet.

The Long Beach Convention Center’s roots date back to 1905 when the first Municipal Auditorium opened. At that time, the surrounding Long Beach area was bustling with a popular amusement park, The Pike, which featured one of America’s first roller coasters.

A second Municipal Auditorium opened roughly three decades later in 1932, replacing the original. In the 1950s, Elvis Presley and Judy Garland were among the recording artists who performed sold-out shows at the new Municipal Auditorium. Elvis returned to the city in the 1970s and performed multiple shows at the Long Beach Arena, which opened in 1962 and became the first building in the Convention Center complex. The second Municipal Auditorium was then demolished in 1975 to make way for the Long Beach Convention Center.

The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, the Grateful Dead, Iron Maiden, Run-D.M.C., The Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and Led Zeppelin are among the musicians that have graced Long Beach Arena’s impressive stage. With a seating capacity of 13,500, the venue provides a large, yet somewhat intimate, experience for fans and performers alike.
