The Albany Capital Center is an important economic engine in the Capital Region. When visitors are drawn to our area for events or conferences, they spend money on overnight hotel accommodations, transportation, food and beverage, entertainment and shopping, thus generating new visitor spending, as well as state and county taxes.

The Albany Capital Center officially opened its doors on March 1, 2017. As of June 30, 2021 the Albany Capital Center hosted 637 events and meetings and generated $53.6 M in total new visitor spending.

I have had the honor of working at the ACC since 2015. In that time I have watched the building take shape from the ground up, sold event space before it was visible to everyone's eyes, gone on countless tours and planning meetings with clients, seen amazing events come to reality, cheer on our team through it all and learn how to pivot during the ever so challenging last two years. It is my pleasure to lead this team into our next chapter of events and facility management - looking forward to what lies ahead!
