In early 2000, on what was previously the SkyVue drive-in theater lot, an idea came into fruition. This idea, initiated by Mr. Jerry Lewis, was to have a venue where people can come together, for any reason. Thus, our first convention building was opened for business. With a full sized kitchen and a large stage available for a variety of events, business flourished. It was quickly apparent that we needed more space. By 2002, our second building was up and running. This new building struck a chord with customers by offering smaller space options via a collapsible wall. This meant that there were now a total of 3 available spaces to rent, each equipped for different needs.


Today, these 2 buildings are connected into one massive complex, giving our customers the versatility that is so important in today’s world. Over the years, many modifications have been made to increase our customers’ experience, with more improvements always in the works. Mr. Lewis’ granddaughter, Jill Snow, who now manages this complex along with the Quality Inn, a limo service, and apartments all on the same property, has always wanted her customers to enjoy “big city amenities with a small town feel.” At the Paris Convention Center, you get just that. Allow us to welcome you in with a friendly smile, and give you the means to go out and say “let’s come together.”
