Event Planning

In addition to the Arena, the DCU Center also consists of an attached state-of-the-art Convention Center. The complex has 100,310 square feet of exhibit space, 23,636 square feet in 11 meeting rooms, and a 12,144 square foot ballroom, (the largest in Central Massachusetts). The DCU Center is designed and sized specifically for the professional fulfillment, comfort and budget of small to large-sized conventions, meetings, social events and trade shows.

Exquisite pre-function space, superb in-house Food Service provided by SAVOR..., a fully integrated 14,805 seat general session arena, sophisticated communication and utility services are just a few of the amenities that are available at the DCU Center.

Worcester's location, congenial atmosphere and rich cultural and recreational attractions make it an ideal city for your next event. Conveniently situated in Central Massachusetts and within an hour drive of Boston, Springfield, Providence, RI, Hartford, CT, and Manchester, NH, it's no wonder Worcester has become known as the heart of New England.

In Worcester, you'll receive the exclusive attention of ASM, the DCU Center's professional staff, and Discover Central Massachusetts, all fully prepared to ensure a successful meeting, private function, convention, consumer or trade show. You'll also have complete attention from the city and access to its resources. Because the DCU Center is ideally suited to handle any size group - from 10 to 15,000 - you'll receive the personal service most cities give only to large group planners and attendees.
