The wishcamper center is amazing, An Eventective User from Portland, Maine

The wishcamper center is a great conference center on the campus of the University of Southern Maine in Portland. The cafeteria has a beautiful view of the Back Cove and Portland's skyline. The staff there will help you in every way possible. I helped with a radio conference there, and instead of having to set up websites on projectors all over the building, I simply gave a list of websites we needed to an IT worker and his crew got them all up and running. The food service there is terrific and they will give you much more than you need. The Wishcamper Center has many options for giving presentations, including a lecture hall/auditorium with a movie theater size screen and classrooms for small groups. If you need press coverage of your conference, there is a radio station next door that often covers events on the USM campus.


Amazing Conference Center, An Eventective User from Portland, Maine

I work for a show called Blunt Youth Radio. This January, we had a radio conference at Wishcamper Center on the University of Southern Maine campus. The Great Northeast Radio Rally went great thanks to the USM staff. The Wishcamper Center has many great rooms for giving large presentations. The lecture hall classrooms have very comfortable chairs, great acoustics, and large projection screens. The dining hall has a great view of the Portland skyline. We had over one hundred attendees at the conference and everyone was impressed by the Wishcamper center. The food was great. We told USM staff what radio features and videos we wanted to play, and they were all queued up and ready to go in every room we were using when we got there.


Great conference venue, An Eventective User from Portland, ME

The University of SOuthern Maine's Wishcamper center is the perfect venue for a conference. The views of the Portland skyline and of the back cove are beautiful. The lecture halls have very comfortable chairs and great acoustics. Every classroom has a wireless keyboard and projector, which makes presentations very easy. The USM foodservice will provide great food for a conference. I helped run the first annual Northeast Radio Rally at the Wishcamper Center and it couldnt have gone better.
