The Irving Convention Center Turns 10

Thursday, January 28, 2021 8:00 AM by Carol Stoddard

We’re dedicating this #ThrowbackThursday to one of Irving’s biggest game-changers - the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas, which opened 10 years ago this week. Hosting a wide variety of events from large public shows, to small meetings, to sporting events and more, the building is as flexible as it is beautiful and served as the catalyst that spurred the development of Irving’s Entertainment District.

But the road to developing a convention center in Irving took many twists and turns along the way. Join us as we travel back in time and learn the history of this architecturally stunning structure. As always, for the young and young-at-heart, we’ve included a familiar puzzle. Click on the image below to load the online puzzle. Now, let's get started.
