Known as the “Gwinnett Civic and Cultural Center” when it opened in 1992, the name was changed to “Gwinnett Center” after the Tommy Hughes Ballroom and the Arena at Gwinnett Center officially opened in 2002 and 2003. The Center was one of the projects built with funds from a four-year sales tax approved by voters in 1988. The campus continued expansion with the addition of a parking deck in 2007. The momentum continued with a naming rights agreement with Infinite Energy for the Gwinnett Center in 2015 and the creation of a revised master plan for the campus in 2016.
Since its opening, the Center has hosted top performers, prestigious collegiate sporting events, significant conventions and trade shows, and a myriad of community gatherings and events; and the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners has worked collaboratively with the Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau, Inc. (“GCVB”), also known as “Explore Gwinnett,” for the operation of the Infinite Energy Center as well as promotion of tourism within the County.
With on-site parking available in a beautifully landscaped environment, the Infinite Energy Center offers four major areas:
Infinite Energy Arena (formerly The Arena at Gwinnett Center), a 13,000-seat, state-of-the-art facility, is home to the Atlanta Gladiators, an ECHL hockey team and the Georgia Swarm, a NLL lacrosse team. Perfect for events from Broadway shows and concerts to sports events, the Arena can handle it all.
Infinite Energy Forum (formerly Gwinnett Convention Center) offers a 50,000-square-foot Exhibit Hall and 23 versatile meeting rooms that can be configured for events from two to 1,000 attendees.
The "five-star" Grand Ballroom is the crowning touch for the Forum. The 21,600-square-foot Grand Ballroom also meets the demand for additional exhibit and breakout space.
Infinite Energy Theater (formerly Gwinnett Performing Arts Center) features a 702-seat theatre with excellent visibility and acoustics from anywhere in the house.
