On Thursday, August 5, the City of Little Rock enacted a city-wide mask mandate stipulating that face masks are required in all public spaces within the city. This includes the public facilities that LRCVB manages – Statehouse Convention Center, Robinson Center, and the River Market’s Ottenheimer Market Hall, Pavilions and First Security Amphitheater.
We’re excited to announce that the Statehouse Convention Center is Arkansas’s first facility to be awarded Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation. This means that we’ve implemented the most stringent protocols possible for cleanliness, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention in the Statehouse Convention Center.
Connected directly to the 418-room Little Rock Marriott, the Statehouse Convention Center is 220,000 square feet of meeting space. Our team simplifies your planning with on-site event, audio-visual, security and telecommunications professionals trained and ready to provide all of your critical staffing for meetings, exhibitions and special events.
Wireless internet is available throughout the facility. Verizon and AT&T cell towers have been placed within the buildings to ensure the best possible signal strength.
Conveniently attached to Arkansas’s only full-service Marriott – which offers 40,000 square feet of meeting space and is the facility’s exclusive caterer – the Statehouse Convention Center has access to expansive catering services to fit every food and beverage event.
