WNC Agricultural Center, Fletcher, NC

The new LEED-green certified Event Center boasts over 45,000 square feet and is an ideal location for a diverse range of events and gatherings — from national and regional trade shows and conventions, to corporate meetings, public expos and large-scale entertainment events. With the capacity to accommodate up to 3,700 attendees at a time, the Event Center is an exciting and powerful addition to the region.
“Our goal is to offer meeting planners, who always wanted to book big events in Western North Carolina but couldn’t because of a lack of space, the opportunity to bring their clients to experience the charm and hospitality of the region. We know this event center will make us a major event destination,” said Ron Stamey, WNC Ag Center Marketing Specialist. In addition to the 45,000 square foot exhibit hall, the center features a full service restaurant, flexible meeting space, breakout rooms and state-of-the-art audio and video technology. Show managers will enjoy meaningful technology upgrades throughout the Event Center’s footprint, including building-wide digital signage, VOIP-enabled show floors, expanded wireless network and a total fiber optic upgrade to the internal computer network.
