The Wenatchee Convention Center was constructed in 1980 through a $2.6 million Economic Development Administration grant. The Orchard Hall and additional breakout rooms were added in 2009 giving the Center a total of 18 meeting rooms ranging in size from 500 to over 10,000 square feet.
In the fall of 2015, a $3 million renovation of the Wenatchee Convention Center was completed. Upgrades included new lighting, acoustical ceiling system, decorative lighted wall panels, and carpeting in the Grand Apple Ballroom. The Orchard Hall also received new lighting, acoustical ceiling system, new wall décor, and carpeting. The Lower and Upper Lobbies received a makeover as well with new wall coverings, paint, lighting upgrades and carpeting. For additional comfort for our guests, new HVAC heating/air conditioning was installed throughout the entire facility.
