The Alamodome is what is known as a “third generation” facility. Its features column-free spans for unobstructed viewing and curtain wall system for configuration flexibility.
With the Alamodome you get the advantage of both a convention center and a dome without the drawbacks of either. The Alamodome is large enough to easily accommodate assemblies and tradeshows. The column-free design makes it unlike other domes in one very important way: it has an intimate, “human” scale.
The Alamodome opened on May 15, 1993 at a cost of approximately $186 million. It is owned and operated by the City of San Antonio.
It is the preferred venue for many trade shows, conventions and concerts such as Monster Jam, Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, and the Valero Alamo Bowl. George Strait played a concert in the Alamodome in May of 2010 setting an all time attendance record for the largest concert ever played in San Antonio; the attendance was 55,266 people.
The Alamodome was the home of the NBA World Champion San Antonio Spurs from the years of 1993 to 2002. Additionally, the Valero Alamo Bowl takes place here every year. The Alamodome was awarded the 2001 HOSPY Award for Outstanding Recreational Facility by the Greater San Antonio Hotel and Motel Association.
