For over 25 years, the big, red roof of the Casper Events Center has been a defining landmark at the top of a hill overlooking the city. Though it was designed to host major events and tradeshows, no one at the time could anticipate just how varied those events would eventually become and how the Events Center would bring new meaning to the word "accommodating."
The event center hosts over 200 events and approximately 300,000 attendees visit each year. The Events Center provides a venue for entertainment, trade shows, conferences and conventions, as well as sporting events, Best of Broadway theatrical productions, and one of the most renowned rodeo events in the United States.
Contributing to this variety of events is the centralized location of the facility. Casper is nearly equidistant between Billings, Rapid City, Salt Lake City, Denver, Omaha and Boise, which makes the Events Center an ideal site for regional conventions, trade shows and special events. Its size and convenient location make it a one-of-a-kind venue in Wyoming.
In years past, the Events Center has been proud host to a wide variety of theatrical and musical acts, ranging from big-name recording artists (the Eagles, Garth Brooks and Elton John, to name a few) to the highly-successful Best of Broadway series. The Events Center has also hosted such events as the first LEGO League State Robotics Competition, fundraisers for the Boys & Girls Club, numerous business expos, the National Indoor Football League Games and the University of Wyoming Cowboy Shootout.
The building allows for any number of configurations and uses, including exhibit halls, classrooms, meeting rooms, theatres, sporting arenas and full concert stages. Each event is staged in the most professional manner, and is often paired with other amenities such as a full-service catering kitchen, alcohol service, concession stands and a friendly, experienced staff ready to make each event a success.
