Just south of Tacoma in the city of Lakewood, the McGavick Center is a modern, versatile meeting space that offers amenities that many other meeting venues do not. 

The McGavick Center is located on the Clover Park Technical College campus, and one of the ways the college utilizes the center is through its full service kitchen.

They will cater your event for less than the typical going rate and will provide an unforgettable experience at the same time.

The 10,700 square foot ballroom at the McGavick Center can handle up to 1,200 people  with free parking available for every guest. If a smaller event is what you are looking for, they also have an atrium and outdoor terrace with views of Mount Rainier that work great for parties and receptions. There is a board room, and several classroom-sized spaces available for more intimate meetings. 

The McGavick Center is modern in every way, and that includes the technology available to those utilizing the space. From state of the art audio visual equipment to free wifi availability. Best of all, your attendees will be pleasantly surprised not to have to pay to connect, and you can breath easy knowing you won’t run into any technical difficulties.
