A Modern, Sleek, and Memorable Venue

Host your event in the Dewey Gottwald Center, the newest addition to our campus. Equipped with contemporary finishes and a dynamic floor plan, this sleek steel and glass structure is a stunning location to host your retreat, conference, wedding, or lecture. Make a grand entrance into a modern building through a private entry with direct access to parking.

The space can hold a maximum of 500 guests for a seated affair and 1,000 for a lecture-style event. The large open space and creativity of our clients allows us to host vendor shows, proms, and even wine tastings!

The Dewey Gottwald Center has the capability to be partitioned into two smaller sections, Gallery 1 and Gallery 2. This additional versatility allows us to accommodate events of 250 guests or smaller. Hold your wedding ceremony and reception all at the Dewey Gottwald Center by using the Galleries and/or Terrace.

The space has an outdoor Terrace providing a beautiful view of the sunset behind the Dome Theater and a view of the historic train canopies at Broad Street Station. Shade can be added to the space by renting a tent for the area.
