To host your own business conference, we recommend The Great Hall as your venue. How you choose to arrange the space is dependent on how many people are attending your event. The Great Hall has ample space for all of your  guests. In the past, tables have been arranged in a U-shape to accommodate 42 people. We have also arranged circular tables to fit up to 300. This space comes to life when you make it your own!

Nothing bonds your team together more than a group retreat. The size of your team will be another deciding factor for the best venue for you. For a smaller group, The Penthouse at The Lofts would be a great option! The Penthouse offers two floors of laid-back elegance and a rooftop deck that overlooks scenic downtown Staunton. While the meeting space in The Penthouse can fit anywhere from 1 to 40 people, it is a great area for a mix of work and play. The meeting space can be arranged with a table to accommodate your group, and the rest of the rooms include comfortable couches and chairs to lounge on. It even includes a kitchen with a bar top for easily accessible meals!

Finding the perfect space for your seminar is easy at The Blackburn. While you could use The Great Hall or The Penthouse for your seminar, a great alternative option would be Gallery 1828. This space is infinitely transformable and is among the most ideal meeting rooms that Staunton, VA has to offer. This room has minimal design, offering you a blank canvas to let your ideas flow freely! It can be organized with various table shapes and sizes. Gallery 1828 would also be a great space for any educational training your team may require.
