The Javits Center is more than just a convention center. Named after the legendary and lifelong New Yorker, Senator Jacob K. Javits, this self-sustaining New York icon has become a wildlife sanctuary, a community partner and a nationwide nexus where the latest ideas in business and pop culture converge under one very green roof. With a significant investment in our infrastructure, we have quickly become a leader in sustainability, security and technology, setting a new standard for convention centers throughout the country. We employ thousands of experienced event and construction professionals dedicated to coordinating and constructing events with major brands from around the world, generating waves of economic activity across the region. And with a historic expansion project underway, we‘re preparing to host an even wider variety of events in the years to come, attracting new generations of visitors to Manhattan’s West Side.The Javits Center’s namesake, Jacob Koeppel Javits, served New York for more than 30 years as New York State Attorney General, a U.S. Congressman and U.S. Senator. The son of a janitor, Senator Javits was born on May 18, 1904, and raised in a tenement on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. In 1920, he graduated from George Washington High School as president of his class, attended night school at Columbia University, and continued to New York University Law School where he earned his Juris Doctor degree. Throughout his years of public service, he demonstrated a deep commitment to social issues, by helping create the National Endowment for the Arts and by sponsoring the 1973 War Powers Act. The Javits Center is proud to continue Senator Javits’ legacy of public service by hosting events that support New York’s economy, creating jobs and business opportunities for New Yorkers.
