General Information

Four Keys to Success:

When you book your event at the Mobile Civic Center, you assure your success in four ways:


The Civic Center draws from an immediate population base in excess of 555,000. With certain events consistently drawing audience members from the entire Gulf Coast, the Civic Center’s reach extends from Biloxi, Mississippi to Pensacola, Florida — each an hour’s drive from Mobile.


Compare the cost staging your event in Mobile to the cost of using another facility. Dollar for dollar, the Mobile Civic Center offers you the best deal on the Gulf Coast.


Use any part or the entire facility. The open, spacious lobby and concourse areas work well as pre-function and exhibit areas. Fifteen meeting rooms ring the domed Arena, ranging in size from standard conference rooms to auditorium-style configurations.

Support Staff

The Civic Center provides a full range of support services — from pre-planning and hospitality to marketing and promotion. An in-house catering staff is available for all functions, no matter how large or how small. And the Marketing/Public Relations Department can develop your marketing plan and make recommendations for media placement, ad design, press releases, and promotional events.

For state-of-the-art facilities and comprehensive support services at the industry’s most competitive rates, contact the Mobile Civic Center. Our staff will be glad to submit a detailed proposal for your next event.
