Thinking Outside the Ballroom

Convention Centers. Hotel Conference Rooms. Onsite Board Rooms.

All are typically looked at when starting a venue search for your corporate meeting or event. More and more meeting planners are thinking outside the ballroom and nontraditional spaces have seen a growth of 3.8% over the last year.

1505 (3) (2)Are you looking to grab your attendees’ attention? Get them motivated, inspired even? host your event at a not so “traditional” event space. Here at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, we give you the best of both worlds, as our event spaces have a slight traditional feel within a unique space.

Our Combat Gallery gives your guests a jaw dropping experience as theyIMG_3148 dineĀ under the wing of our B-17 bomber. They will experience seeing a WWII era aircraft up close and be surrounded by many other pieces of WWII history.

If you are looking for a twist on the typical blank meeting room, try hosting your next event in our Art Gallery. Tie your meeting’s theme in with the location, making your key points into “canvases” set up around the room for discussion. This will get your guests buzzing!

ART GALLERY 3 (2) (1) On each break, your attendees can tour the Museum to get a real feel for the Mighty Eighth Air Force and its role in WWII. At the end of the day, move your guests into our largest space, the Rotunda, seating 260 for dinner. As they end the evening, dining under a parachute ceiling, have them join in the entertainment. Hire a 1940’s era trio to sing tunes from artists such as the Andrews Sisters or Glenn Miller. Create a valuable, memorable experience at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force. Our unique spaces are the perfect choice for your “twist” on the traditional venue.IMG_8926 Book Your Corporate Event Today
