Venue Spotlight: Plano Event Center

The newly renovated and renamed Plano Event Center is an 86,400 square foot venue providing flexible function space accommodating as many as 5,000 people. The exhibition hall offers 21,600 square feet of column-free, completely carpeted space, a professional master stage, and high dock and street level move-in access. There are also 14 additional breakout rooms available. Amenities include on-site catering and audio-visual teams, free parking, and free public Wi-Fi. Plano Event Center, located in one of the most vibrant communities in North Texas, is just 30 miles from DFW Airport and Dallas Love Field Airport and is close to a variety of hotel options.

What’s New

The recent $2.5 million renovation included new paint throughout the entire interior and exterior of the building, new carpet and furniture, as well as renovated restrooms with new marble tiles, flooring, sinks, mirrors, and partitions. Dramatic new chandeliers were added to the main, east, and west hallways and in the Windhaven ballroom. The sound system in the second largest room, Windhaven, which overlooks the courtyard, was upgraded and new motorized shades were installed so the room can be completely darkened for corporate presentations. Windhaven also received new laminate wood flooring. All of the remaining meeting rooms received new window shades and white boards that double as screens for audio-visual presentations.

Update as of 6/26/18: Plano Event Center is excited to announce a convention hotel has been approved; a 4-star Radisson is expected to open in 2020. For more information about this long-awaited and exciting news, click here
