The Meeting Space offers a double vestibule and comfortable seating with an oval table. It is located in the Shenkman Arts Centre with plenty of free parking.

This Meeting Space can also be used as a set up room, green room or an organizer base-camp for events held at the Shenkman Arts Centre.

The Meeting Space is available to businesses, groups, or individuals for one-time or scheduled reoccurring meetings.
