Clarence Brown Conference Center
Bartow County and each of its municipalities agreed to jointly fund the construction of a 45,000 square foot state-of- the-art Conference Center utilizing $20 million of the 2008 SPLOST proceeds. The Clarence Brown Conference Center is located on Georgia Highway 20 just west of I-75, directly across from Georgia Highlands College.
The conference center was designed and constructed to host a variety of businesses and social functions. The ballroom will accommodate 1400 people in a theater style seating arrangement and approximately 1000 people seated at tables. The design allows the space to be used for convention and trade shows and is capable of handling up to 17 different functions simultaneously, from large annual meetings to family gatherings such as birthday parties, wedding receptions and anniversary celebrations. The grounds feature a beautifully landscaped outdoor pavilion and an amphitheater, designed to host social, cultural and entertainment events.
