Meet Safely at the Conference Center at Main


Making Your Meetings Safe

April 2020 brought new challenges to the meeting and event industry as COVID-19 brought everything to standstill. A year later, professionals in this industry have united – stronger and more determined than ever to demonstrate the value of meetings for local business, government, and yes, even libraries.

Global Meetings Industry Day

Celebrated annually on April 8, this world-wide event gives conference centers like ours a way to showcase facilities and staff. This year, the theme is “Meet Safe,” which highlights the extraordinary efforts of industry professionals over the last several months in making meetings and events safe.

Our "Meet Safe" Commitment

By following local, state, and federal regulations; performing regular and deep cleaning regimens; rethinking layouts; encouraging social distancing; and continuing to meet and exceed customer expectations: Event hosts and conference center staff can offer in-person, hybrid, or virtual meetings and celebrations safely.
