Think Outside the Ballroom

Your event is more than just tables and chairs. That’s why we start with people, understand their event needs, and deliver not just an event, but an experience. Let’s imagine the possibilities.

Overlooking the Mississippi River, The Estuary Conference and Event Venue sets the standard for style and sophistication for any special occasion or symposium. The Estuary features over 6,000 square feet of stunning meeting and event space, including a gallery space with breath taking views of the Mississippi River. Our five conference rooms and Riverfront Gallery with a Pre-Function area allow for a variety of setups for meetings, break-out sessions, workshops, or retreats. The outdoor terrace overlooking the Water Campus is a stylish place for al fresco receptions and parties while the Newton B. Thomas Landing brings your guests out over the river to enjoy the beautiful sunset.
