Since opening in September 2008, the Raleigh Convention Center has been a remarkable resource for groups from 50 to 5000. Nestled in downtown Raleigh, with surrounding restaurants, the State Capitol, shopping, and other attractions, we believe the Raleigh Convention Center is the best site for the best convention ever! While in the convention center, FFA members will experience motivational speakers, award presentations, an exciting career show, and participate in career development events, not to mention a block party!
