The University of California, Los Angeles will soon attract more scholars, innovators and thought leaders to its campus with the August 2016 opening of the UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center.
The 295,000-square-foot conference center will house 254 guest rooms, 25,000 sf of meeting space, a restaurant and lounge as well as an art collection with many original works from artists affiliated with the university. PLATEIA, the onsite restaurant and lounge, will feature Mediterranean cuisine with fresh, seasonal ingredients, including locally caught seafood and artisan breads, pastas and cheeses, topped off with a selection of California wines.
Not only will the conference center feature floor-to-ceiling windows in almost every meeting room, it will be anchored by a multipurpose conference hall with seating for up to 750 attendees. The university’s commitment to research and technology will be further enhanced by the conference center, with more advanced connectivity, audiovisual equipment and teleconference services available.
The conference center will help expand the university’s offerings for groups attending campus meetings or events and will be used for educational, research and philanthropic purposes as well as for interviews and recruiting. Groups eligible to use the conference center include alumni, visiting academics, vendors and consultants, companies engaged in philanthropic or educational initiatives, parents of students and families in the process of selecting a college.
