Event Planning

Planning an event for business or pleasure comes with its challenges. With dozens of logistical considerations and things like food and decorations to take care of, it is no doubt that planning a great event is highly stressful.

This is why we at the Sarasota Event Center are here to help you. With decades of experience planning and hosting events of our own, we are uniquely positioned to give you the support you need.

Whether you’re hosting a birthday party or a bat mitzvah or a business meeting and seminar, we have the necessary facilities, tools and skills to make your event a successful one. We take on the burden of planning your event for you while still leaving you in control of everything else.

Work closely with our team of event planning consultants to plan an occasion to be remembered.

Personal Events

True to its name, our grand ballroom is specially designed to host large events and can comfortably seat up to 350 guests in style. For that bit of extra fun, the grand ballroom also has a large dance floor where you and your guests can dance the night away.

Host networking sessions and have pre-event cocktails before your event in our lobby / pre-function space. We’d have you know that our grand ballroom is a favorite choice for weddings and bar mitzvahs. Enjoy a cocktail at our full-service bar and lounge where you can host intimate celebrations with those special to you.

Professional Events

Impress both corporate clients and employees alike when you organize a seminar or business meeting with us. We have a range of tastefully designed meeting rooms to suit the needs of even the most demanding client.


Keep your guests well-fed with meals from our professional full-service kitchen. Dine on luxurious four-course meals or treat your guests to a sumptuous buffet spread all catered by our staff.

Forget stressing out about the weather or parking when you allow us to plan your events. On site, we have ample parking spaces–170, in fact, along with several designated as handicapped accessible. If that’s not enough for your event, special arrangements can be made for more parking spaces nearby.

Need to be seen as well as heard? We also offer a comprehensive selection of top-quality A/V equipment. From amplifiers to PA systems and even lighting rigs, we’ve got you covered from all directions.

At Sarasota Event Center, you can sit back, relax and enjoy your event as we take charge of everything. Call us today for more information on how we can help you plan the perfect event.
