We are inspired to be your venue of choice!

From its inception, the Clarence Brown Conference Center was built and bolstered by our community. This underlying confidence is a prevailing force in each event hosted here. Every event is personal to us, and every guest is welcomed as a neighbor. Let’s Get Started

Affordable Excellence

We believe it would be a challenge to find a venue that offers the affordable excellence gained here. Reasonable rental rates, effortless technology, and first-class service is the winning trifecta for accolades and repeat business from our corporate clients. Accomplished event planners know that there is strength in numbers. Our dedicated employees become part of your extended team while taking care of every detail. You will be pleasantly surprised to find no minimums on food and beverage services. And when your meeting needs a little fuel, our custom morning, afternoon and beverage breaks offer the freshest coffee available – locally roasted and served within 24 hours from bean to cup. Imagine the aroma while you take a look around.

Desirable Location

The Clarence Brown Conference Center is ideally located on Atlanta’s northside in Cartersville, Georgia – just one mile west of I-75 Exit 290. Tradeshows and Expos have chosen to make us their north Georgia host, as one-million patrons live within a 45-minute drive of the Clarence Brown Conference Center. They often put our Discover Cartersville Shuttle in charge of transporting guests to and from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport and the Cartersville Airport. Upon arrival to the Brown Center campus guests can check in to the Courtyard by Marriott for a restful stay. Cartersville is known as Georgia’s Museum City, so be assured your guests will have many options for tours, dining and entertainment. Get to know us

Impeccable Service

We take pride in accommodating our guests while inspiring beautiful celebrations for life’s biggest moments. The Clarence Brown Conference Center team is trained to flawlessly accomplish Weddings, Garbas, Quinceañeras, and other social gatherings. While our list of services is comprehensive, we welcome your questions in planning. When needs arise we aim to achieve an optimum solution for all. Our center provides many event spaces from open air venues to extensive ballroom configurations to bring a distinct feel to each ceremony of multi-day events. We invite you to Meet Our Staff and to find inspiration in our Photo Gallery.

We look forward to making your appointment the first step to success!
