Unconventional Features

Hosting an exceptional event takes unconventional features, which is why ours will not only compliment your next event but will take it to the next level. See how our features can help make your event one to remember.

 

Sustainability

Meetings happen in places all over the country but in Cleveland, our Center lives and breathes green. We welcome you to experience our comprehensive sustainability plan supported by an eco-friendly design. Check out some environment-friendly initiatives below:

  • Grind2Energy Program: An onsite food waste recycling program which enables food waste to be converted into energy, natural gas, electricity, and fertilizer.
  • Water Re-Fill Stations: To help reduce the use of plastic bottles, our strategically placed water stations have replaced 21,000 bottles annually.
  • Lighting: A control system that uses daylight harvesting by taking advantage of the extensive natural light.
  • Green Rooftop: Creating a 14-acre park above our Center and in the middle of downtown Cleveland.

 

The Real Farmville

Managed by our exclusive food and beverage provider, Levy Convention Centers, The Real Farmville provides an acre of fresh produce, honey, herbs and vegetables used in menu items daily.

From beehives producing honey used in dressings and desserts to two dozen chickens sourcing eggs and produce, The Real Farmville gives farm-to-table a whole new meaning.

The Cleveland Convention Art Gallery

When you come to our center, we want you to know that you’re in Cleveland. To accomplish this cultural presence, we decided it was time to work with a local art consultant who could help bring out the CLE in Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland! The Cleveland Convention Art Gallery is an exhibition space for local/regional artists, and the artwork displayed is intended to honor the broad diversity, history, and community growth. The gallery opened its first exhibition in summer 2018, titled “A Conversation in Metal and Canvas” and featuring the sculpture of David Deming and the paintings on canvas by Samuel Roth.

The gallery is located on the concourse level and is free/open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., but are subject to the facility’s convention, trade show, and meeting schedule.
