Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, began an innovative transformation on July 1 to add state-of-the-art facilities and enhanced experiences as part of the beginning stages of the reinvention of downtown Cincinnati’s convention district. The anticipated completion is third quarter 2025, and Visit Cincy is now booking for 2026 and beyond.

The reimagined center will boast energy-efficient exhibit and meeting spaces, refreshed ballrooms, a pre-function area, outdoor event space, and a rooftop terrace.

“The reimagined Duke Energy Convention Center will be a game-changer, providing a modern, dynamic space that meets the evolving needs of event planners and attendees,” said Julie Calvert, president and CEO, Visit Cincy. “We are excited about the opportunities this transformation will bring and look forward to unveiling a venue that truly reflects the vibrant spirit of Cincinnati. We encourage event planners to secure their dates now and be among the first to experience our newly renovated space in 2026.”

During the renovation, alternative venues available to host events of all sizes include Sharonville Convention Center, historic landmarks, contemporary spaces and more. The Meeting Made Cincy campaign highlights the benefits of hosting events in Cincinnati.
