It’s no secret that Allen Event Center is a great place to catch a concert or to cheer on the Allen Americans hockey team, but it’s also a great place for you to craft your next corporate get-together or compose your next convention. With a great location in The Village at Allen, Allen Event Center is situated among some of the hottest shopping, dining and entertainment venues in town and is next door to the 228 room Courtyard by Marriott. So, the only thing missing to create a masterpiece of a meeting here is your imagination.

Quite possibly the only thing better than Allen Event Center’s location is the amount of space and flexibility it has to offer. Think of its arena as a 27,600 square foot blank canvas just waiting for you to paint out the plans for your next event. 

Hosting an awards ceremony? A luncheon? A presentation for a large group? A tradeshow? A product launch? No problem here! Whether your group needs a stage, an open space, breakout rooms, banquet seating or tradeshow booths, the staff at Allen Event Center is ready to help you sculpt your next meeting. How about team building events? They can easily get your team into a friendly game of hockey, broomball, basketball or even dodge ball to get your camaraderie kick-started. 

If you’re planning for a smaller group or maybe you need even more space, they’ve got plenty of places for you to break the typical meeting mold. In addition to the arena, Allen Event Center also has two meeting rooms that can be combined for nearly 900 square feet of meeting space that can accommodate between 60 and 100 people in a banquet, classroom or boardroom set-up. The approximately 1,500 square foot Jameson Lounge is also a great space for smaller groups. Located on the second floor, the Lounge offers inspiring views of both The Village at Allen and the arena and is perfect for a cozy lunch or presentation. 

If you’re looking for a more creative way to utilize space, the building’s concourse sports an additional 26,000 square feet of space that’s perfect for 10 by 10 booths for event vendors or tradeshows. In addition to offering plenty of room for event set-up, the back-of-house area at Allen Event Center is also a unique space for more 10 by 10 booths, a small stage or even a luncheon.
