If meeting planners designed a city, then the city, its venues and all requisite services would be one. That’s Foxwoods. It’s the best-kept secret in North American meetings.
Located between Boston and New York City, Foxwoods simplifies the task of meeting planners like no other place. Nestled in acres of pristine Connecticut forest – and yet just minutes from vibrant New England cityscapes – Foxwoods rises like an electrifying citadel for business and relaxation. Ease of attendee movement, exceptional catering and dining, highly configurable boardrooms and ballrooms, and a city’s worth of after-hours shopping and entertainment all exist in one magnificent place. It’s easy to get to, and our team takes the guesswork out of even the most complex event plan.
Foxwoods is excited to provide you with a safe space to plan your upcoming events. With 150,000 square feet of meeting and convention space, Foxwoods has plenty of room for physical distancing while allowing guests to safely reconnect for in-person events in line with local guidance.
In addition to the full list of Resort Safety Protocols, new guidelines for meetings and events include, but are not limited to, the following:
Our 47,533 square-foot Premier Ballroom gives each seat at your meeting or event excellent sightlines. The Premier is the largest ballroom in the Northeast (that’s a fact) and is designed with contemporary elegance and state-of-the-art technology. Its overall design provides for ease of floor plan designs for large trade shows, while adaptable room divisions can accommodate meetings of any size.
The Foxwoods Grand Ballroom in the Grand Pequot Tower has 25,000 square feet of elegant space, no columns and is divisible into five sections. A 4,000 square foot pre-function area with 23-foot ceilings provides ample room for registration or pre-dinner cocktail hours. The main ballroom can accommodate 165 trade show booths measuring 8’ x 10’.
The Grand Pequot Tower and the Fox Tower at Foxwoods have spacious hospitality suites that provide a relaxed setting for hosting clients, private breakfasts or cocktail hours. The palatial Mashantucket Villa, located on the twenty-second floor of the Grand Pequot Tower, is the perfect location for that extraordinary event or exotic private party. The elegant dining area and serene living room with piano, fireplace, and panoramic views of miles of forest provides the perfect atmosphere whatever the agenda. Our Manhattan Suite even includes a billiards table for entertaining.
It’s true that we have some of the most dazzling indoor space in the world. Our outdoor spaces are equally impressive. Dinners on the lawn, pool parties and golf are just a few of the activities that you can enjoy in the fresh Connecticut air. Nothing gets the creative juices flowing again like stepping outside for a refreshment break.
Convention forums consistently rank food and beverage quality in the top 10 factors that determine the success of corporate gatherings. It’s simple: great cuisine improves the experience, which has a direct effect on how ideas and information are received by attendees. From intimate events to functions for thousands, year after year, Foxwoods receives exceptional feedback from event planners about the quality and diversity of our catering. That’s because the expert Foxwoods catering team understands how F&B equates to triumphant events. And our culinary offerings have been recently updated to reflect the hottest trends in cuisine.
