Branson Convention Center


The Branson Convention Center is the centerpiece of a mixed use waterfront development in tourist mecca Branson, Missouri. Purposely designed to not look like a convention center, the center anchors the Branson Landing entertainment district and links historic downtown Branson with the Lake Taneycomo boardwalk. As structural engineer, Walter P Moore used mixed structural systems of post-tensioned concrete, steel and exposed wood to create a structure that is both efficient and beautiful. 

The main concourse was elevated to conceal loading docks and provide great views of the lake for patrons. A structural steel framed convention floor supports 15-inch diameter exposed timber V-braces which support the wooden roof structure. 

A 900-key Hilton Hotel tower and parking structure completed the complex.
