Weddings and Special Events

We’re not all business.

The Pollard Technology Conference Center provides the ideal environment for social events of many shapes and sizes—from alumni gatherings and holiday parties to wedding ceremonies and receptions and bar/bat mitzvahs. Our beautiful, large lobby area, private rooms, and courtyard area can be dressed up to create an elegant, yet comfortable, setting for any occasion.


Our lobby is ideal for larger receptions. It includes 18-ft ceilings, contemporary lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system, and a refreshment bar ideal for serving beverages and hors d’oeuvres. This area can comfortably accommodate up to 250 guests.

The smaller Dogwood, Iris, and Mockingbird rooms are also available for overflow seating. They can each accommodate an additional 18-65 guests.

Our outdoor courtyard area is a two-tiered wooden deck that can be decorated to suit any occasion. It includes outdoor tables that can accommodate up to 25 guests.

The 300-seat auditorium would be ideal for showing a running slide show of your favorite photos. These could also be projected at the same time on the 42-inch plasma screens throughout the facility.
