Looking for someplace memorable for your next corporate event? There are endless possibilities throughout the United States depending on the size, budget, location, and nature of the event. Whether you want to break the mold with a unique space for your next conference, or simply scale up to a larger, high-end facility, we have a few ideas to spark some inspiration.
Corporate Event Venues Outside the Box
Planned to open on September 29, 2023, the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas is an engineering marvel. A geodesic dome that can provide amazing effects in sound, light, and even temperature, it features 580,000 sq feet of LEDs — a creative canvas so bold and bright you can see it from space! Inside, the giant LED screen wraps over and behind the audience, delivering a totally immersive visual environment.
The Sphere can transport your corporate event “to the 22nd century and beyond”, offering group ticket packages, premium suites, and custom private experiences.
Ready to play ball? Your corporate event can be held in a Major League Baseball stadium. The Washington D.C. venue is in a highly-accessible location and includes huge spaces with tons of natural light and plenty of enhancements to entertain your attendees. It has indoor and outdoor venues that can host small gatherings or accommodate tens of thousands of guests. Catering is exclusively by Levy Restaurants which can supply gourmet meals or traditional ballpark fare. That’s a home run!
Orlando remains one of the most popular destinations for corporate events, and there are many venues to choose from. ICON Park will take your event higher – 400 feet in the air higher – where guests can eat, drink, and network in a climate-controlled capsule.
Back on the ground in their 87,000-square-foot courtyard, host a tented event or a grand banquet on the lawn, and choose from custom catering and entertainment packages. It’s all just one mile from the Orange County Convention Center.
Tapping into the best of art and culture, an event at the Smithsonian American Art Museum is a thing of beauty. Host a cocktail reception in a graceful space modeled after the Parthenon in Athens or gather in the Grand Salon of the Renwick Gallery, an elegant historic landmark steps from the White House. The Nan Tucker McEvoy Auditorium seats 340 and features a sprung stage and flexible lighting.
This Frank Gehry-designed center has a one-of-kind architecture and a 9,800 square-foot blank canvas ready to adapt to your needs. Attendees and clients will be dazzled by the extraordinary design and grandiosity of the space.

For a more peaceful, team-building experience, head to Charlotte, NC, and The WhiteHead Manor Conference Center.

Venues for Larger Corporate Events
Smaller cities have become popular for corporate meetings, and Nashville offers music and nightlife to enliven any event. The Grand Hyatt Nashville has 84,000 square feet on three different floors of flexible event venues with breathtaking design and architecture, and a variety of indoor and outdoor options, as well as dedicated catering and event planning teams. Voted the Best New Hotel in North America by M.I.C.E., it is centrally located on world-renowned Broadway with easy access to transportation within the metropolitan area.
Austin is another smaller city that has much to offer for any corporate event. The Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa has the space and flexibility to host any meeting: 76,000 square feet of flexible conference rooms and ballrooms that can accommodate large events, outdoor spaces that provide room to roam across 4,000 wooded acres, and dozens of smaller conference rooms serve as breakout spaces for smaller meetings. During downtime, guests can golf on four beautiful courses, relax at Mokara Spa, explore nearby nature preserves, or enjoy team-building excursions, like food tours, wine tastings, and live music performances in Austin and beyond. That is Texas-sized hospitality.
