Meetings & Events

We have events down to a science!

Whether you’re hosting a lunchtime board meeting or a week-long conference, SCI provides a variety of customizable spaces and accommodations, including flexible menu options, A/V capacity and more. Looking for a unique team-building activity? Try our SCI Challenge and work in teams to complete tasks throughout SCI.


SCI’s meeting spaces accommodate groups from 10 to 200, creating a unique opportunity for you and your company to connect and grow.


From award ceremonies to holiday parties, schedule your event after-hours and reimagine SCI's experience platforms as dynamic spaces to collaborate outside the workplace.
