Located on the bank of the Detroit River, Cobo Center is the centerpiece of Detroit’s Civic Center and the heart of the Motor City’s booming downtown development. Cobo’s 723,000 square feet of prime exhibit space in five exhibit halls rank the facility as the 17th largest convention center in the country.
The DRCFA awarded Chemical Bank the naming rights to Cobo Center on February 20, 2019. Watch the media conference announcement:

Ballroom and Banquent Rooms
The Grand Riverview Ballroom is the largest in Michigan with 40,000 square-feet, divisble into smaller areas, and offering spectacular panoramic views of the Detroit River and across the river to our Canadian neighbors in Windsor, Ontario.
Concourse and Atrium
The 1,000-foot-long concourse atrium provides 100,000 square feet of pre-function space and an outstanding view of the downtown skyline. The 30,000 square-foot three story glass atrium provides flex space to meet all event needs.
Along with Cobo Center, the Civic Center complex includes Hart Plaza. This 14-acre riverfront park at the foot of Woodward Avenue in the heart of downtown is the site of a variety of summer-time entertainment and is available for use by conventions. Hart Plaza features open space for receptions and other gatherings, as well as a small amphitheater.
