The Convention Center includes 64,000 square feet of exhibition and meeting space, and the Marriott includes an additional 25,000 square feet of meeting space in addition to 483 guest rooms.

More information on the Oakland Convention Center is available on the Center's website.
The Oakland Convention Center opened in 19__. Before it opened, what is now called the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center (then known as the Oakland Auditorium) was sometimes referred to as "the convention center"—so it is important to make sure you know which "convention center" is meant when you see references to a convention center in Oakland.
