The Bill Ellis Convention Center opened its doors to the public in 2001. Since then, it has held all types of banquet events. Continually growing to meet the needs of our customers, the center has expanded in many directions.

Imagine the possibilities your special occasion could take on by utilizing the features hidden inside. Two main entrances lead you into the convention center. The front entrance welcomes your guests into a 60 foot long, 20 foot high corridor directing them into the main body. The twin set of double doors on the side entrance allows immediate access into the center. Balconies wrap around the majority of the large, open-spaced area. Lighted trees surround the walls for a warm, elegant environment. A concession/drink bar area sits angled in a central location. Several banquet rooms adjoin the main body for parties of smaller groups.

Performance Stage and Acoustics
Yes, the convention center has capabilities of live bands performing to your group with our state-of-the-art sound systems.

Rotating picture lights, spectrum lighting, adjustable bar lights, and globe stage lighting are used to enhance the event on stage. In addition, not two, but three large spinning mirrored balls hang spaced throughout. This further accents by throwing rays of small light in circular motion covering the room for the more party atmosphere.

Whether guests speakers or music is a part of your event, you can be assured the quality of sound will be crystal clear.

Catering Your Party
Bill Ellis Barbecue and Chicken Restaurant, located directly beside the convention center, can cater any menu of your request. Bill's world famous barbecue and chicken is always a favorite choice. However, Bill's catering department prepares everything from heavy hors d'oeuvres to seafood buffets. Whatever the occasion or menu, your event will be a sure success at the Bill Ellis Convention Center. Make your reservations in advance.
