Testimonials

  • Thanks for all your help with our Business Summit. It was a success!
    Your venue is great and we’ll definitely use Penn State Great Valley for our next event.


    Christine Leonardo/Southeastern PA Regional Task Force.

  • "The staff has been excellent!  We’ve been using the facilities for the past 2 years and are very pleased with the services and technology.”

    Mike Rush, Tax Executives Institute

  • The process of planning events can be very stressful and difficult.  The people at the Penn State Great Valley Conference Center make this process as easy as anyone could.  There are always changes that need to be made throughout the planning process and the Conference Planning Team have accommodated any changes immediately if they could be changed.  They have done so with professionalism and the understanding that these events can certainly cause stress to the event planner.  When I have another event in the area I will automatically choose Penn State Great Valley!!!
     


    Joe McQuaid, The Philadelphia Group

  • Akcelerant and its customers always enjoy events held at the Penn State Great Valley Conference Center because the facility is truly one-of-a-kind and has the resources to support interactive training. During this year’s conference, attendees were able to take advantage of multiple computer labs, a state-of-the-art auditorium and free wireless access.


    Lauren Sybesma, Akcelerant
