Conference Cener AtriumAtrium

The Conference Center’s Atrium is the place where people come to meet. It is main gathering location for groups using the Center. The Atrium is an ideal place for breaks or networking receptions. Many groups use the Atrium to greet their conference guest and hold their registration check-in for their event. This part of the Center is also an ideal location for a limited number of exhibitor displays.


Our 150-seat auditorium is an outstanding room for a picture-perfect opening session or a professional presentation. The environment is designed to be soothing and relaxing while providing a superior setting for any major presentation or keynote address. The advanced audio capability along with the oversized screen makes this room a wonderful place for impressive video projection or presentations.


The 4,300 square foot Ballroom provides you with the ultimate in flexibility. From a classroom setting for 156, to a theater setting for more that 350 or a tasteful banquet for 300, this room gives you the most options for choosing the most suitable seating arrangements for your event. But should you need a smaller spaces for your meeting we can install the soundproof partition walls thus creating three separate 1,400 square foot meeting spaces that can be set anyway you desire.
