Meeting Planning in Huntsville, AL
Von Braun Center
Located just minutes away from the Huntsville International Airport, the Von Braun Center is downtown Huntsville's premiere event venue. The impressive center was named after Wernher von Braun, a former German rocket scientist who, along with a team of scientists brought to Huntsville, laid the groundwork for the United States space program.
The expansive facility features more than 170,000 square feet of space, meeting rooms to accommodate groups of all sizes and a 20,000-square-foot lobby and pre-function area. The center's North Hall and East/West Hall provide an additional 50,000 square feet of exhibit, meeting and banquet space.
The center is also home to a 10,000-seat arena, a 2,153-seat concert hall and a 502-seat Playhouse Theater ideal for conferences, seminars and award ceremonies. Thanks to both public and private support, the Von Braun Center plans to expand in the upcoming years. Expansion efforts will include the addition of 10,000 seats to the arena; more restrooms; a large, glassed-in lobby overlooking Big Spring International Park; a restaurant; and private boxes.
A great locale for meeting groups, the Von Braun Center is just steps away from a number of area hotels including the adjoining Embassy Suites Hotel and the Holiday Inn Downtown. The center prides itself on being a turn-key operation with amenities to meet every event requirement. Catering services, event staffing, wireless Internet access, high-tech audio-visual equipment and 500 on-site covered parking spaces are available.
