IALR’s Atrium is a bright, open entrance that can easily double as a reception, display space or event registration area. The 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 as well as reception space complete with beverages and hors d’oeuvres.
