ARC Conference Center

ARC Conference Center

One of the region’s premier event destinations, the ARC Conference Center features more than 6,200 square feet of event space, including an impressive multi-configuration ballroom that opens onto a private courtyard and includes three adjoining meeting rooms. The ARC Conference Center is ideally located on the West end of the UC Davis campus with convenient parking and easy access to freeways. This warm and inviting space is perfect for hosting a range of different events including private parties, banquets, conferences, information fairs, and weddings. In addition to featuring built-in sound and well-designed lighting options that will enhance the ambience of any event, the Ballroom can be divided into two separate meeting spaces, each with its own ceiling mounted projection system. Three versatile meeting rooms serve as convenient break-out space for the ARC Ballroom or may be booked separately for smaller meetings or staff retreats. Each room features built-in projection systems and comfortable boardroom-style tables and chairs that can be arranged in lecture, conference, or classroom configurations.
