Aceh Community Room: The relief efforts supplied in 2004 when a tsunami hit Aceh, Indonesia defined Mercy Corps. In honor of those efforts, the 2,000 square-foot community room was named after Aceh (pronounced Ah Chay). With an open floor plan, this room can accommodate receptions or theater or classroom seating from 20 to 175 people.
Pre-Function 800-square-foot area outside of the Aceh Community Room, it is most often used as a pre-event gathering space.
Gallery: 800-square-foot area often serves as buffet or auction area.
Action Center: 3,484 sq. ft devoted to multi-media exhibits where visitors can deepen their understanding of how issues like climate change, conflict and land rights contribute to the cycle of hunger and poverty in the developing world. Event guests can use this space to enjoy food and drinks while gaining knowledge about important topical information.
