Room and Audio / Visual Information

We have fluorescent and incandescent lights to adjust to the desired atmosphere for your event.

Our one level floor makes our facility easy to access for all guests. From the main entrance to the event center, everything is on the same level—no need to worry about your guests having to use stairs or elevators, we don’t have them.

Our space can separate into three sections or open up into one large section. Each section comes equipped with wireless microphones (lavalier or handheld options), house speakers throughout the room for ease of hearing no matter your location in the facility, and built in projector systems with 16’x9’ projector screens that drop down from the ceiling. Our projector system is retro-fitted to our facility for ease of use and view for all of your guests.

Guests do have to provide their own laptop computers to connect to the projector system.  Our projectors are setup for VGA compatibility, but we do have some adapters for HDMI ports and others for some Mac computers.  Rental fees for microphones and projectors can be found in the event packets above.

Broadway Ballroom #1—this is our center space and houses the dance floor.  Capacity is approximately 120 guests.

Broadway Ballroom #2—this space is located on the north side of the building and comes with windows.  Capacity is approximately 120 guests.

Broadway Ballroom #3—this space is on the south side of the building, houses the stationary bar and has the capability to section in half for smaller groups of 10-48. This section can seat approximately 104 guests.

Broadway Ballroom Full Facility—this is the combined sections of Ballrooms 1, 2 and 3. It can hold 250-500 guests.

The Broadway Ballroom can also be sectioned into 2/3 of the full facility for groups requiring more than one section but less than the full facility. Seating in 2/3 of the ballroom is from 120-250 guests.

Broadway Ballroom determines which event room and how much space is required based on provided information and other events taking place.

The actual amount of guests each room can hold is dependent upon the room set up desired by the event contact.

Classroom style:
 3-4 guests per banquet table face the front of the room.  This set up style is great for meetings or training that would include a presenter or displays at the front of the room.
  Board room/conference style: using banquet tables guests sit at a large square table facing each other. This style is great for open discussion meetings where there will be no presentation.

  U-shape: guests sit at a tables in a large U-shape facing the front of the room. This style is great for guests who want to be able to have an open discussion and watch a presentation.


  Rounds of 5 or 6 guests: this style set up allows your guests to face the front of the room, but allows more table space than classroom style tables provide.

bb-decor15   Rounds of 8 guests:  this is great for large events focused on dining and entertainment, or when you want your guests to mingle or work in groups on projects.

Our banquet tables are 5’, 6’ or 8’ long.  5’ and 6’ tables are used typically for display and presenter tables, registration tables, card tables, etc. 

8’ tables are typically used for seating, dessert tables, larger presenter tables, etc.

Our round tables are 5’ in diameter and seat 8 people.  They can also be used for dessert tables.
