About the HAPO Center, formally known as TRAC

The TRAC Center opened in October 1995. Once the power was turned on, TRAC Center experienced positive growth in quality events and expanding community attendance. The expanding program base results in more dollars spent within the community.

In the Spring of 2019, Franklin county partnered with HAPO Community Credit Union for a 10 year naming rights agreement. The TRAC Center became the HAPO Center.

The HAPO Center offers a versatility that few event venues can offer to both the promoters and to the public. The complex features a 38,184 square foot Exposition Hall & 39,200 indoor concrete floor arena, supported by a spacious Atrium and three conference rooms. Over 84,000 square feet of exhibit space is available, making The HAPO Center one of the largest event venues in Washington. Each area within the complex is a standalone venue or all the areas may be combined for larger events.

The HAPO Center's customers will find a professional, customer service oriented staff that is able to ensure a successful event. In-house event services make the HAPO Center a "one-stop shop" for the HAPO Center patrons and food and beverage service completes the scope needed for a successful event. Paved parking for 1,450 cars, adjacent grass parking for 500 cars is also available along with a separate 6 acre parking lot.
