Nestled in the heart of the Lehigh Valley in historic Bethlehem, the Iacocca Conference Center is located at the top of “Old South Mountain.”  We offer a secluded, serene, 360 degree view of the Lehigh Valley. Because of its incredible panoramic view of the greater Lehigh Valley, the ICC has always been renowned as a prime venue for special events, conferences and meetings.  As part of a 2017 renovation, we made sure to put our guests’ needs first and focused on adding modern lighting, enhanced acoustics and contemporary furniture, expanding the functionality of the space while complementing it with state-of-the-art technology. We’re excited to share this space with the Lehigh community, the Lehigh Valley and all guests who are in search of an unforgettable location for their next event. We think you’ll appreciate the way we’ve given this building new life.
