The Expo East

Artistic Rendering Of Renovated Expo East

With 9,300 square feet, the Expo East is a more minimalist design in grey tones with exposed beams and a concrete floor, providing a relaxed and casual atmosphere. The Expo East will accommodate up to 550 guests with table seating or 600 guests with theater seating.
