The Conference Center is the PERFECT place for an indoor or outdoor ceremony and beautiful for an elegant, indoor reception! Kayla Lyons is the most helpful and friendly person to work with. She has great suggestions and advice and her crew works flawlessly on your wedding day. Things were planned in such detail. Chef Ray is fabulous! Everything he made was amazing, every guest raved about their meal. Not only is the Conference Center reasonably priced, but it has so many options and includes so much in the venue price. You will not be disappointed!!

My wife and I had both our ceremony and our reception at The Carolina Event and Conference Center and it was AMAZING! We had our ceremony outside and our reception inside. The manager, Kayla, was very experienced and had great ideas to help the whole thing go smoothly. She and her staff were very accommodating, letting us come in early and stay late to decorate. The chef, Ray, was just incredible. We had the rehearsal dinner there as well, and both meals were phenomenal. They have a preferred list of vendors (DJs, florists, decorators, etc.) that we used and everyone on the list was wonderful as well. Overall, a great experience. I would highly recommend this venue to others.

We just had our daughter's wedding at the CECC on December 8th, and it was wonderful. Tim RIddle, the event coordinator did a great job and was very attentive, friendly, and professional. The ballroom here for a wedding reception cannot be beat. Also, the meal was delicious and Chef even came out to say hello as we were decorating for our event. The staff was friendly. I would highly recommend this venue!!

I would HIGHLY recommend the Carolina Event & Conference Center for any function you are having...ESPECIALLY a wedding! My daughter got married there on New Year's Eve, 2011, and everything was wonderful! The staff went out of their way to make sure we were WELL taken care of! If we ever had a question, they would always be there to answer it, or promptly email us. The caterer was excellent also……..the food was FABULOUS! (That's really the only stipulation they have - you must use their caterer...but he is awesome, and very reasonably priced!) The wait staff was very polite and friendly, very efficient….. I don't think we could have had the wedding/reception at a better venue! They sure took a lot of stress off of this mother of the bride! I could go on for days about how great this place is!!
