The 1,734-square-foot conference center, which can be subdivided, will host its first event later this month.
The business center will accommodate passengers during layovers or when they are conducting last-minute tasks.
The conference room and business office is located across the street from parking garage B.
Next up: The Airport Administration offices.
The 1,734-square-foot conference center can be subdivided in three rooms of 571-, 573- and 590-square feet and can host 90-seated visitors. Cocktail receptions/parties and other standup events can be accommodated.
The unnamed conference center will be available to businesses and non-profits upon request and availability. It’s first event in later this month.
The conference center is located at the North end of the terminal to the right of the escalator and elevator. It is an extension of the North terminal with separate entry.
“The conference center can host meetings from the chamber of commerce, Michelin or other groups,” said Rosalyn Weston, spokeswoman for GSP.
No rental fees have been announced. Parking will be available at the B garage, across the street from the center, with an average hourly fee at $1.
Audio/visual equipment is available and setups for tables and chairs and other event supplies can be rented from an off-site vendor.
A prep area for food and beverage is available and the food vendors at GSP are also available for catering.
The business center, according to Weston, came from travelers requesting a designated area to accommodate their needs. “We listened to what the consumer said coming in and out of the airport,” Weston said. “They may want to attend to some last-minute business items or prepare a package to be shipped by UPS.”
Weston said GSP's website will be updated and feature the new conference and business center.
The addition is part of GSP’s $125 million terminal improvement program. The grand opening has been delayed twice – November 2016 and January – with a new tentative date suggested in the spring.
