Construction began on the expansion of the Savannah Convention Center in March of 2021 and officials say the multi-million-dollar project is on schedule to be completed in 2023, and they’re even starting to book events for when it’s complete.

Since opening in 2000, the Savannah Convention Center has served a wide variety of clients and hosted a diverse array of events; however, the need to expand has become obvious. Demand for more space from our customers prompted a feasibility study which confirmed the need for expansion.

Clark Construction was hired by the Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission (GSFIC) in 2018 and an additional 100,000 square foot exhibit hall, 40,000 square foot ballroom, 15 meeting rooms and 900+ parking spaces have been planned for the Convention Center.

Convention Center officials have stated that the “projected growth and development of our facility is one in which many are invested and eagerly anticipating. Upon completion, the expanded Savannah Convention Center will make our city and state the ideal place for some of the world’s largest and most respected businesses and organizations to visit, invest, and/or relocate.”
