Plano Event Center Embraces New Name & New Look
Check out the new
look  of  Plano Centre, now called the Plano Event Center, at a free Open  House on June 19 and 20, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tour the building and meet  our team. After a year-long renovation, we've got lots to celebrate including new paint throughout the entire interior and exterior  of the building, new carpet and furniture, as well as renovated restrooms with new marble tile, flooring, sinks, mirrors and partitions. Dramatic chandeliers now light up the main, east and west hallways and the Windhaven Ballroom.
 
An upgraded sound system enhances our second largest room, the Windhaven. It overlooks the courtyard and is the perfect place for your next party or meeting. New motorized shades allow the room to be completely darkened for corporate presentations. All of the remaining meeting rooms have new window shades and white boards doubling as screens for audio-visual presentations.
 
Whether you host an event or attend one of the many events held at Plano Event Center every year, we hope these changes make every visit more enjoyable. We cannot wait to show it off, please register for our free open house so we know how many to expect.
