I love Renee's breads! Excellent quality and flavor. I'm a big fan.

JCLifer-You're assuming the jurors would all be in good health and could make the walk. It's a pretty steep hill to climb from where they park to the street the courthouse is on. In an ideal world, it would be 12 healthy active people walking a flat surface. That's just not the case, though.

Those figures are only for the meeting rooms (3), meals and the rental of 2 screens. Attendees were approx. 50 people. That doesn't take into account the sleeping rooms or other area business impact. This is a fairly small function for a non-profit group, not a personal event.

I just signed an invoice for $3400 for a 1-day meeting I had to hold in Columbia. The sooner a real confernece center comes to Jeff City, the better.

I remember when a friend and classmate from high school died on the train tracks in Jefferson City. I still think about it to this day. So sad.

Thank you for asking valid questions, Sequoia. I hope my answer isn't lost in a lot of other banter going on.

250+. I don't work for the city. I have taken events to Capital Plaza. It's a good fit for some functions, it's not a good fit for others. Smaller breakout rooms and exhibit rooms can be an issue.

I don't want to dog the facilities we do have. When possible, I prefer to stay in town. There are plenty of times, though, that is not an option.

Have you ever held a conference at the Ramada Inn? I have had board member ask me never to take them there again.

You need to see what other places have available before you start comparing JC's accomodations to them. You are saying that we can have an event for 250+ people with breakout space, dining facilities, wireless, trade show/exhibit area and easily accessible? I can tell you that I have toured our places. They are fine for a dinner, a special event or a family reunion. They are not sufficient for the typical corporate meetings that would last multiple days for out-of-town attendees.

The actual facilities themselves I usually interact with conference staff including: catering, sales, maintenence, security, sound techs, chef and food prep. That's at the service level. You'd also have the actual back office including executive staff, accounting, etc.

If it were built in conjuction with a hotel, you would add more for the front desk, sales, housekeeping, parking, etc.
