Anchorage convention center opens

Anchorage's new Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center opened its doors to convention-goers last month.

The new center offers 215,000 square feet of meetings and trade show space, including a ballroom, exhibit hall, executive boardroom, breakout rooms and an outdoor, heated deck.

The new building increases convention and meetings capacity in Anchorage by more than 300%.

The convention center connects to the 45,000-square-foot William A. Egan Center and the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts by an enclosed skybridge and covered and heated walkways.
