In March of 2021, the Statehouse Convention Center became Arkansas’s first building to achieve Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (LRCVB) has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention in the Statehouse Convention Center. This, coupled with strict adherence to the LRCVB’s own rigorous cleaning regimen, means that visitors to the Statehouse Convention Center and Robinson Center are surrounded by the most thorough cleaning processes possible.
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.
