Event Planning

Whether you're planning a meeting for ten or a conference for 1,000, we are prepared to help you. Our staff is available to suggest and find appropriate spaces, anticipate and address special setup needs, and assist with navigating the UO rules and policies. We can also help connect you with other services that may be integral to your event, such as Catering, Ticket Office, and Facilities.

Because many of our facilities are in high demand, please contact us as soon as possible to ensure space and equipment availability. For larger events like conferences, concerts and performances, an initial planning meeting with our office should be scheduled at least one month prior to the actual event date.

Event Services

When it comes to providing support for your event, we offer a full range of services, from outdoor canopy setups to large banquets in the Ballroom to special lighting for a dance in the EMU Amphitheater. Our staff will work with you throughout the planning and execution of your event, attending to the details that contribute to a smooth-sailing function. For major events, you will have a dedicated Event Coordinator, along with a Scheduling Coordinator, who will be your liaison to our department.

Although we pride ourselves at being responsive to spontaneous needs, we can facilitate the best results with advance notice and prior communication.

Equipment

We can supply a variety of standard items and a wide selection of technical equipment, such as: tables, podiums, stage units, speaker-phones, laptop computers, DVD players, projection screens, wireless microphones and portable lighting systems. In addition to our large inventory of stand-alone equipment, all EMU meeting rooms have state-of-the-art audiovisual/media installations that include flat-panel televisions/computer monitors or LCD projectors.
