Maxwell Regional Agricultural & Convention Center

Wayne County is taking North Carolina’s hospitality industry to a whole new level. In the spring of 2018, the local community will break out the champagne glasses to toast to the opening of the Maxwell Regional Agricultural & Convention Center, or commonly referred to as MRACC (pronounced “em-rack”).

With 65,530 square feet of convention and meeting space, this venue is nestled in the heart of eastern North Carolina. In an area rich with culture and heritage, MRACC pays homage to the agricultural roots of our community while providing services ahead of its time. State of the art amenities, experienced convention staff, and 20,000 square feet of office space are the elements that form the foundation of this convention center. But Wayne County knows that meeting and event planners are looking for more than a venue. It’s really about the experience. A type of experience that is authentic and cannot be duplicated elsewhere. When you choose MRACC as a venue for your next event, you’re choosing to enjoy a downtown draped in architecture reminiscent of The Great Gatsby era. You’re choosing to indulge in the best BBQ in the south and mingle with folks whose hospitality is built into their very core. You’re choosing to make your event reflective of something more than a theme, but of your value in the simpler, more beautiful things in life not easily found in metropolitan settings.

The City of Goldsboro is seeking letters of interest and information from companies for the development of a key hotel adjacent to the MRACC.  Click here to get a copy of the solicitation.
