Furnishings and Equipment
Our room rental fees provide additional value with custom furniture setup and breakdown included. Furnishings include your choice of table shapes and sizes and cushioned chairs, and each of our meeting rooms have independently controlled temperature and lighting.
A wide range of meeting room equipment is also available for rent, including podiums with and without attached microphones, a/v carts, projectors and screens, a stage platform riser, and much more.
We maintain a listing of local caterers who can provide light snacks to large luncheons and everything in between. If you’d like to use your own food provider, all that’s needed is a copy of their operating license and the appropriate insurance. If your gathering will include serving alcohol, you can either utilize our on-site concessionaire, or we can refer you to a caterer who is in possession of the specific liquor license required to serve alcohol at the Thrasher-Horne Center.
