Conferences and Corporate Retreats

Conferences and corporate retreats can be reimagined! With inspiration in every direction, the Everson provides your team with a dynamic space to think creatively and work collaboratively. Our 300-seat auditorium offers space that is often unavailable in an office setting, and is ideal for presentations, seminars, and films. And for team-building, consider adding a docent-led tour of the galleries to your event!

Your guests will be treated to a memorable experience that celebrates world-class art in our iconic I.M. Pei-designed building. Plus, the Everson provides an incredible backdrop for high-style wedding photography.
