Long Beach Convention Center

Long Beach, California

Project Description:

In 2013, the Long Beach Convention Center wanted to be able to change the 45,000-square-foot sports arena into a flexible space that could accommodate events of any size, from intimate dinner gatherings to a ballroom-sized trade show floor or large-scale performances. They called upon J.R. Clancy to design and manufacture one of the largest moveable tension grid systems in the United States powered by high-capacity hoists and a custom wireless automation system. With the wireless system and custom rigging, changeovers that once required a large crew can now be done in a matter of minutes.


  • Custom-designed flying truss and tension grid system
  • Custom high-capacity hoists, 84,000 lb. capacity
  • Custom wireless pendent controller
