Albany Capital Center Stands Tall in Upstate New York

The Albany Capital Center is a beautiful glass structure located in the heart of historic downtown Albany, New York.


The Albany Capital Center, an 80,000 sq.-ft. convention center, is located just steps away from the New York State Capitol and has direct connections, via a climate-controlled walkway, to the Empire State Plaza, The Egg and the Times Union Center. With the ACC as its centerpiece, these spaces make up the Capital Complex, the largest meeting space in Upstate New York at 159,000 square feet.

Proudly managed by SMG, the Albany Capital Center provides our capital city with a contemporary meeting, ballroom, and exhibit venue. The new facility will, at a single 53,000 sq.-ft. location, accommodate meetings, banquets and exhibitions simultaneously on two levels, insuring the best visitor and exhibitor experience.

With wall-to-wall carpeting, LED lighting, digital signage and offering what is the fastest high-speed FREE Wi-Fi in the area, we are confident that the Albany Capital Center will impress! Events are expertly accommodated by “Mazzone Hospitality” our exclusive in-house catering which operates out of a 3,000sq.-ft. kitchen. The Albany Capital Center kitchen is state-of-the-art, capable of preparing multiple course meals for up to 3,000 guests in an evening.

The Albany Capital Center has 130 parking spaces available within three underground levels right below the building. In addition, the Albany Capital Center parking garage is connected to the Times Union Center parking garage, which has a total of 950 spaces. 

The ACC was designed and built with versatility in mind to host a variety of events, not just conferences. As a multi-purpose facility with 26-foot ceilings on the main floor, the space allows for sporting events such as basketball, volleyball, roller derby, and now the rapid growing industry of e- gaming.
