Wonderful place for a wedding! - An Eventective User

We just recently hosted a wedding here and we couldn’t be more pleased with the venue, the food, the staff, the entire event! Everything was wonderful and we would highly recommend The Conference center and Inn to anyone planning a wedding or any event. The Aramark Catering manager Pam Morgan was excellent at assisting in planning the entire event from beginning to end. Our manager for the day, Will, took great care of us the day of the event even when difficulties arose that needed quick attention. The place is beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff was helpful through it all. I will definitely be planning future events at this wonderful location!

The Madren Center at Clemson University - An Eventective User from Summerville, SC

I had my wedding reception at the Madren Center on the campus of Clemson University in Clemson, SC. Our wedding was in December, so we had the reception in the main ballroom, but they also offer an outdoor pavilion by the lake that is beautiful in the spring, summer, and fall. Many people have both their ceremony and reception there. The catering was done in-house (required) and they also did an excellent job. Every employee was helpful, well dressed, and professional. There is also a hotel (the James F. Martin Inn) connected to the Madren Center, which is incredibly convenient for the wedding party and out of town guests. I would highly recommend this location!
