About Prairie Capital Convention Center
In addition to large-scale national events the convention center also hosts smaller occasions like weddings, receptions, corporate conferences and professional meetings. This massive entertainment complex has been recently updated and expanded to increase its versatility. 44,000 sq. ft. of open space makes up the Main Hall, where all the biggest events take place. Featuring state of the art closed circuit and satellite television screens, the highest quality audio-visual set up and a stunning array of lighting effects, all of the magic happens at the Main Hall.
Smaller events are hosted in the attractive and spacious 21,000 sq. ft. Lower Level. The brand new BOS Plaza provides a stunning outdoor space, alongside the fabulous patio of the two upper level terrace areas. Both terraces are sophisticated and modern in design, accented with beautiful LED lighting features, adding a special atmosphere to any kind of occasion. Other enhanced features include additional concessions for more delicious snacks and food, upgraded restrooms and an expanded lobby for a more comfortable starting point upon your entry to the convention center.
Besides the main arena, there are enough meeting rooms to accommodate up to 500 people, with customizable options to suit the exact specifications of your next event. Weddings, business conferences, receptions and celebrations are just a few of the many occasions frequently hosted by the Prairie Capital.
