Additional Information:
The $52 million 317,000 sq. ft. Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center opened in September 1993 on the waterfront in Mobile, Alabama. It won the coveted 2002 "Prime Site" award from Facilities & Destinations magazine based in part on the facility's innovative architectural design.

In September 1998, a mere three years after the Center's grand opening, Hurricane George slammed into Mobile. The convention center was put to the test, withstanding the 103-mph sustained winds and 25-foot waves that George delivered. Much of downtown Mobile was flooded with chest-deep water covering the wake of destruction left by the storm, but the Convention Center remained safe and dry under its Series 300 standing seam metal roof from IMETCO, which did its job and protected the building against nature's assault.

Since that time, the Convention Center and its Series 300 roof have been tested time and time again by notorious storms including Hurricane Ivan in 2004, Hurricanes Dennis and Katrina in 2005, and a series of six named storms and 12 tropical storms in 2002 alone, yet today it stands as resilient and beautiful as ever.
