Michigan’s newest waterfront convention center will offer imperial services for a perfect meeting location. The Blue Water Convention Center, located in Port Huron, presents over 34,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the-art meeting space and on-site dining and catering by Freighter’s Eatery and Taproom.

A one-hour drive from Detroit or Flint, with over 900 hotel rooms to offer, it will be a meeting planner’s dream destination for conventions, receptions, events and more. Opportunities for adventure abound in the area. Historical locales including Michigan’s oldest working lighthouse and lightship, award-winning golf courses, waterfront dining and beaches, boardwalks, chartered fishing trips, narrated boat cruises and one of a kind sight-seeing all make the Blue Water Convention Center a meeting location to discover.


Dividing walls allow you to create just the right space for small or medium events or use the entire space without dividers for a large conference, meeting or event. 

Several smaller breakout rooms are also available.
