The Atrium separates the Institute Conference Center from its competitors. IALR’s Atrium is a bright and open entrance that can easily double as a reception, display space or event registration area. When visitors enter the Atrium, they are surrounded by a sophisticated environment that speaks to the progress and innovation embraced by IALR. The Atrium’s avant-garde design mixes an open, airy feel with shafts of natural light to enhance the architecture of brushed metal and reflective glass. More than just a welcoming point, the Atrium can accommodate dozens of display booths for trade shows and conferences. The Atrium also provides a relaxed atmosphere for a reception where participants will gather for beverages and hors d’oeuvres.
