The second phase of the Multi-Purpose Events Center project was the Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall completed in 1996. This 58,000 square foot meeting space is located on the south side of the Wichita River and connects to the J.S. Bridwell Agricultural Center by a pedestrian bridge.
The two main Exhibit Halls offer a great venue for trade shows, conventions or large banquets. In addition, the building features 10 breakout rooms that can host meetings, seminars and receptions, as well as a 216-seat seminar room. Through the years, the Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall has been home to annual events like the Home & Garden Show, the Hotter ‘N Hell 100 Consumer Show, Christmas Magic plus conventions and conferences with up to 2,000 delegates.
