The Conference Center at Lone Tree

Creative flexibility at The Conference Center at Lone Tree

As Kristina Petrie, the event sales and marketing manager shared, “We don’t have limitations on the kinds of events we can have here. We are not only a conference center; we are truly an event venue.”

CC@R, located on Schwab Way, is a light, bright, cheery space with pops of color and art. The creative flexibility of the entire space is what sets it apart from other venues. The seven meeting rooms have capacities ranging from just a few people to 150 guests with a multitude of configurations with tables and chairs as well as multiple room options. Each room offers a different design aesthetic and experience.

Plug and Play technology includes projection, teleconference and video conferencing capabilities (and Wi-Fi of course), making it a perfect place for corporate meetings of any type. The creative ideas are endless. No detail was overlooked with break-out areas, flex rooms for taking calls, many charging outlets, a water bottle filling station, and even a mother’s room.

Kristina shared that recent customers have included roofing contractors, healthcare groups, veterinarians (who set up a pop-up animal caricature artist in a bonus room) and a Mom’s Prom party with a DJ and dance floor. Restaurant employees and bartenders received training in the space and massage tables were set up for therapy training. A surprise birthday party was just successfully pulled off in one of the rooms.

The reception space includes lounge areas and a covered outdoor terrace perfect for networking or a meet and greet event before heading into one of the conference rooms. Kristina pointed out that small businesses can invite people to spread the word about their products and showcase them as a catering company recently did.

“If you dream it, we will try to make it happen,” Kristina exclaimed, adding that she enjoys seeing event visions come to life and giving customers great experiences. Together with Brittany Chung, the conference coordinator, the duo offers a very personal experience, striving to offer a seamless event every time.

Kristina said, “If you’ve had an event with us, we remember every detail,” which is likely why CC@R has had their busiest year ever with a very high percentage of repeat customers. “We’ve had groups come in for a 10-person board meeting and say, ‘Wow, I didn’t realize you have all this great space; we can have a Q2 meeting and our holiday party here.’” The team aspires to make each repeat customer’s experience even better than the last.

Despite the cutting-edge technology, including microphones in the ceiling so it is not necessary to hand a microphone around during a video call, technology can be fickle, Kristina admitted. With wedding and event planning experience, Kristina is up to any challenge, claiming “we have back-ups to our back-ups.” Flexing their creative muscles, the team deftly adapted when 150 people showed up to an event scheduled for 50.

CC@R partners with many vendors for catering and bar service. If additional audio/visual equipment or special details such as china are needed, CC@R has vendors available. Where most venues require customers to use one of their approved catering vendors, CC@R is flexible if there is a special request such as a Kosher meal. CC@R offers half-day and full-day rentals with options for evening and weekend events. Partner hotels are located close by, with some offering discounts for CC@R customers.
CC@R occupies the entire second floor of the building, and the main level will be host to additional retail spaces, including the now-open Great Divide Brewing Co, which offers the perfect happy hour vibe following any corporate outing.

Whether meeting classroom style or theater style, networking on the outdoor terrace or dancing at a party, a gathering is lot more interesting at CC@R. “The goal of this space is for the community to use it,” Kristina exclaimed.
