Officials at ACE Conference Center announced that renovation and refurbishment of the Philadelphia-based event destination is now complete.
The transformation of the 32,000 square feet of meeting and event space included 120 guestrooms, the lobby, the lounge and dining room, all of which were refurbished last year.
“We are pleased to unveil our renovations, offering many new enhancements designed to please our guests” said Daniel Briones, general manager, ACE Conference Center.
The center’s natural setting is complemented by the updated, modern appearance of the new meeting and event spaces, which were designed by Chicago-based American Hotel Register. They used products from Steelcase and Teknion, manufacturers of meeting furnishings. Selected furnishings support various work styles and shifting work behaviors with intuitive features for guests’ usage.
Traditional meeting spaces were changed into “Collaboration Studios,” which allows guests to collaborate, create and share ideas in five different studios. Rooms feature lounge furnishings, benches and ottomans, high café tables with bar stools, a traditional conference setting and various seating options. Each studio is outfitted with a built-in LCD monitor, a rolling white board, laptop tables and natural lighting.
Enhanced technology and personal electronic devices are accommodated in the Center’s upgraded design. SMART Boards are available in select meeting rooms along with wireless Internet access, which has a bandwidth speed of up to 100 mbps. Communal seating provides work space for guests.
ACE Conference Center is an accredited member of the International Association of Conference Centers (IACC). Located in Lafayette Hill, Pa., its facilities are situated on 300 acres of woodlands and rolling hills. The Center is owned and operated by the ACE Group, which is a multiline property and casualty insurer.
Leaders at the Center recently collaborated with Wolfgang Puck Catering to give guests a menu of fresh, seasonal and healthy food offerings. The team also caters to intimate weddings, convention galas, family occasions and events such as the Academy Awards Governors Ball.
