Event Facilities
Is your group considering Midwest conference centers for your next event or gathering?

Known as a world-class university, Purdue’s West Lafayette campus offers up a world-class conference center for your meetings, conferences, seminars, ceremonies, weddings, receptions, symposiums, reunions and other gatherings and events. Offering first-class lodgings, a convenient and central Midwest location, and a long list of amenities, Purdue is a premier choice in convention centers within the region. That only makes sense, since the campus boasts its very own Tourism and Hospitality Research Center.

Just 60 miles north of Indianapolis, 120 miles southwest of Fort Wayne, 125 miles from Chicago, 94 miles from Champaign, IL and 170 miles from Cincinnati, this campus can easily gather attendees from the entire area and welcome them to your event. The nearest International Airport is in Indianapolis, but there is an airport in West Lafayette as well, the Purdue University Airport. It’s very centrally located for a regional conference.

Another of the features that makes Purdue unique is their dedicated meeting facilities. These, conference coordination services, and overnight (hotel) lodgings are available all year, which is uncommon at a university setting. Purdue Conferences can provide a one-stop solution that includes the many resources of a Big Ten university to private organizations.

Purdue is able to welcome as many as 7500 attendees and provide overnight lodgings for them all. Up to six thousand can be accommodated in the theatre, and up to 1100 can be seated in one large classroom-style room! Some 40 meeting and event rooms are made available to The Conference Center’s guests.

As you’d imagine, audio-visual technology is state-of-the-art at Purdue. Wireless and broadband Internet, of course, AV services and technologies, videoconferencing, and even satellite uplink and downlink are available! Additionally, their Hall of Music Productions offers video, multimedia, audio, lighting, staging, and effects services. Professional theatrical carpenters, lighting experts, audio and video technicians and more can be brought together to create exactly what you want for your presentation or performance! That’s another big Purdue plus!

Catering is equally expansive, and can include basic food services, breaks, receptions, alcohol menus… or you can choose to go upscale with three other catering groups, all right there on campus! Meals can be customized. Service can be customized. You can have it your way!

It’s easy to see why Purdue’s centrally located event facilities are considered world-class. When all of these elements come together, there are few Midwest conference centers that can offer as much. Give them a call. Share your ideas with them, and allow them to make your fondest event dreams a reality!
