MCCA Brings Capital Improvements to Hynes Convention Center

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) is bringing enhancements to the Hynes Convention Center, the best located convention center in North America.

The Hynes will undergo capital improvements over the coming years to bolster its future as an industry-leading facility. With excitement from the local community, the MCCA has already begun extensively upgrading the Hynes, a process continuing through early 2029.

Planned upgrades include:

  • New carpet in the Level 3 ballrooms and pre-function space
  • Final escalator replacements to be completed by end of 2023
  • Upgraded lighting with increased effectiveness and efficiency
  • Replacement of air handlers and antiquated control systems, ensuring the building continues to operate efficiently in the future
  • Additional capital investment being evaluated to further improve the facility for customers and attendees

The Hynes will remain open throughout the capital improvement process.
