George R. Brown Convention Center

This year's NEA EXPO will be housed in the huge 1.2 million square foot George R. Brown Convention Center  located in downtown Houston, TX. It is one of the largest in the nation and its bright red white and blue color scheme and nautical theme make it one of the most recognizable. The George R. Brown Convention Center has a quadruple-domed roof and because of its volume can host multiple events on the same day. The George R.
