Welcome to the Waco Convention Center

The Waco Convention Center’s lobbies are currently closed to the public due to the pandemic. We are operating at 50% capacity, and are booking customers on a case-by-case basis, with the precautions listed below.

Precautions Taken Due to the Pandemic:

  • Maximum of 300 attendees
  • No linens on tables – must use silver 72” linenless tables in order to be able to disinfect surfaces
  • No registration areas – no lines or congregating
  • No buffets – all food must be served “to-go” style or plated by a licensed, approved caterer
  • Planned entrance/exits to each room with doors propped open to minimize touch points
  • No water stations or coffee stations
  • Any snacks, etc. all have to be pre-packaged grab and go. No open containers or finger foods can be out.
  • No bars/alcohol service or dance floors
  • Masks must be worn at all times, and we have hand sanitizer stations placed at the entrance to each room being used.
  • The Waco Fire Department will come in and disinfect around the group’s schedule (they spray very quickly, it doesn’t take long at all)
  • No more than 2 people per 6’ table when eating.
