Since 1992, the City of Arvada’s Banquet and Conference Center operations has been headquartered at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. On July 1, 2016, management and operations of the Arvada Center was transferred from the City of Arvada to a newly-created Arts Non-Profit. The City's Banquet operations ( Arvada Events) will continue to operate out of the Arvada Center until a new venue is constructed.
The City is inviting public input regarding the development of a free standing Conference and Event Center in Arvada by conducting a survey. This survey will help to define the characteristics of a new facility. REVPAR International has been commissioned by the City to understand and analyze the feedback we receive.
A Few Things to Note:
- A location for a potential event center has not yet been determined. The focus on this part of the hospitality master plan update is ananalysis of the market -- from both meeting planners and the community -- followed by a financial feasibility study. Information from this study would be used to determine the size and seating capacity of a new venue. This information would, in turn, be used in locating a site.
- Hospitality operations do not rely on tax dollars for funding. Arvada Hospitality operates as an enterprise fund, which is a separate set of financial records used for operations financed and operated in a manner similar to a private business enterprise.
- This would a replacement for the banquet and conference functions currently operating out of the Arvada Center which recently separated from the City of Arvada organization becoming its own nonprofit organization. Part of the the long-term strategy of that agreement was to relocate the City's hospitality services to another community venue.
