TRA Marketplace is at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, HBGCC is recently renovated and is the perfect spot for our reinvigorated TRA Marketplace in 2018. The $325 million expansion marks the largest capital improvement project in the City of San Antonio’s history and increases the footprint to 1.6 million square feet.

Today’s festivities were celebrated with the unveiling of “Liquid Crystal,” a public art installation by artist Jason Bruges that is located in the center’s expansive new lobby atrium. Its 3,510 LCD interactive panels create a digital fountain effect where the flow depends upon the amount of people and activity filling the atrium. It is one of three new art installations in the center, showcasing San Antonio’s diverse arts scene.
The Henry B. González Convention Center, originally built in 1968 when San Antonio hosted the World’s Fair, has welcomed numerous additions and renovations throughout the years.
The project provided a clear opportunity to further secure the convention center’s position as a top destination for conferences and events, while challenging the convention center design team to find a creative way to integrate the convention center into the surrounding downtown area and Hemisfair Park.
