There are a lot of huge facilities with a capacity of over 10000 that holds mixed events. For example, take a look at the pictures below that were taken in the same facility. It holds concerts, sport events, conventions, exhibitions, trade shows. What is the proper tag?

We have these:

But these facilities are not specifically any of these but all of these. I would say they are closest to a convention center (that doesn't seems like an existing tag) but usually those doesn't function as a sports center. Maybe an events center? But that is just a proposal.

There is also amenity=events_venue.

amenity=events_venue is for smaller ones, and there's also leisure=events for large outdoor ones.

You could start by adding sports=* to a conference/exhibition/event center object if it is mainly for the latter.

But these facilities are not specifically any of these but all of these.

Sports venue tags could possibly co-exist with event venue tags. I would suggest leisure=sports_hall, which is already often used as a venue for other events in schools and communities. =sports_centre usually implies a permanent one, available for training mostly, only holding sports events sometimes. =stadium sounds too big for these.

Conversely, I could imagine someone tagging a smaller, local sports hall with amenity=events_venue if they regularly hold non-sports activity. (if it's not a =community_centre already)

I would say they are closest to a convention center (that doesn't seems like an existing tag)

It is cited as American English of "conference centre".

Maybe an events center? But that is just a proposal.

Both amenity=conference_centre and amenity=exhibition_centre are "proposals". I would support event center for reasons written there.

I'd say this looks like one of conference or exhibition centre (convention centre is a synonym), and in practice much more like the latter. As Kovoschiz says events_venue is in general used for much smaller places used for weddings, bar mitzvahs etc.
