Consider Cal Poly Humboldt for Your Next Event

Consider Cal Poly Humboldt for Your Next Event

Those who are responsible for coordinating educational events, seminars, and training retreats have added challenges as event planners. They need a venue that is serious enough to promote an atmosphere of education and learning and has all the appropriate facilities to do so. But at the same time planners also want a venue in a location that their attendees actually want to travel to – that offers some fun options after the day’s serious work takes place.

Cal Poly Humboldt is one of those event venues that truly has it all for event coordinators – especially for those tasked with arranging educational events like classes, professional meetings, conferences, seminars, or presentations.

Cal Poly Humboldt is one of only three polytechnic universities in the California State University system and is a serious, educational facility with a stellar reputation for learning. It is located 275 miles north of San Francisco in the stunning town of Arcata, California on the beautiful and rugged northwest coast of the United States. Its location near ancient redwood forests, mountains, and beaches will truly prove to be inspirational to the attendees of your event.

But in addition to its wonderful location, and academic reputation, Cal Poly Humboldt offers the serious nuts and bolts of events that professional event planners look for. A multitude of choices of state-of-the-art meeting facilities with flexible set ups, delicious culinary options, and comfortable residence halls makes Humboldt perfect for conferences, retreats, workshops, seminars, and so much more.

Humboldt has just about everything needed for practically any event – large or small. Its almost endless array of spaces includes classrooms, meeting rooms, large gymnasiums, theaters -- even a Sports Arena.

Humboldt can accommodate events for both large and small groups and also has a wide selection of campus housing options including traditional housing, apartments and suites available during the summer months.

Humboldt’s Conference & Event Services Department is extremely accommodating and will work with you to achieve your vision for your event. From site selection, audio visual guidance, to culinary choices, they are an event planner’s one stop shopping location for everything needed for a seamless educationally focused conference. And their convenient package rates make it easy to stay on budget.

Humboldt’s Conference & Event Services Department loves to say, “Have your education along with your vacation.” After they help you coordinate your successful event, they can also help your group relax and rejuvenate. The Student Recreation Center, with weight and cardio equipment, is convenient for your guests on campus to work out after a full, busy day. Or if your group is looking for fun adventure off campus, the Humboldt Center Activities team can arrange an exciting activity in one of the many stunning areas on the beautiful Northern California Coast. Plus, the eclectic and very walkable downtown of Arcata is right across the street.
