Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center

The 200,000 square foot Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center offers beautifully designed, flexible event space. The largest, most modern facility of its kind in the state of Alaska, the Dena’ina Center is ideal for events from national conventions and trade shows to local meetings, banquets and special occasions. Visitors to this state-of-the-art facility will enjoy meeting rooms and halls that feature breathtaking views, versatile gathering spaces, and both traditional and modern artwork from cultures across Alaska.

The Dena’ina Center features every technological and professional advantage you would expect in a world class civic and convention center. At street level, and at almost 50,000 square feet, Idlughet (Eklutna) Exhibit Hall is the largest room of its kind in Alaska, offering over an acre of event space. More intimate than the exhibit hall, Dena’ina’s second floor meeting rooms are just as spectacularly designed, and offer highly configurable options for meetings, seminars, classes or special occasions. Modern A/V connections, LCD signage and touchscreen audio and lighting controls keep any meeting running smoothly.

The K’enakatnu (Knik) executive boardroom is the perfect space for smaller meetings. Perhaps the most glamorous event space, the third floor Tikahtnu (Cook Inlet) Ballroom, greets guests with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of Alaska’s prolific mountain ranges. From small company holiday parties to gala charity balls, opening-night cocktail mixers to keynote convention speeches, the Tikahtnu Ballroom is flexible and accommodating. The outdoor terrace provides a spectacular vantage point for guests in all seasons.
