Room Information


The Conference Center Auditorium

The comfortable and attractive auditorium will enliven your audience and put them at ease. There isn't a bad seat in the house. An elevated stage with a wooden floor, theater curtains, catwalk access and retractable screen backdrop commands the room. Yet the stage does not overpower or impose. The onstage presentation feels accessible and inviting to the audience. Architectural details such as tiered seating that slopes for visibility, the friendly feeling to the scale of the room, a balcony, adjustable lighting for stage and audience, and decorative columns create an uplifting and dignified setting.

Up to 650 can gather together here to share an intimate environment that accommodates discussion across the room. This is the place to make your event memorable.

Audiovisual equipment, multimedia connectivity and videoconferencing are available. The auditorium features fixed tiered seating combined with movable chairs on the floor for a degree of flexibility in the center of the space. Inquire about the needs for your event with our facility manager.



Create a signature presence in our spacious lobby with booth materials, sales inventory, refreshments or sign-in tables. Many people who host their event in our auditorium use the lobby to control entrance to their event, sign in their registrants, or hand out promotional packets. This lobby space also accommodates booths and displays in conjunction with events here. The lobby can be used to direct and interact with your attendees between sessions.
