Why Should You Care About The BJCC? The BJCC creates region-wide jobs and economic benefits. Spending associated with Convention Center events interacts with all sectors of the local economy. Convention Center events are responsible for supporting many jobs county-wide. While many of these jobs are in the hospitality sector, others are in sectors as diverse as agriculture, durable good manufacturing, and construction.

The Convention Center's primary mission is to attract conventions and meetings that will generate economic benefits for the region. When convention tourists come to Birmingham they create economic activity. Activity that ripples throughout our region.

The BJCC is an important community gathering place. The BJCC is more than just a venue for conventions and trade shows, it is a magnet for the local community too.
