IB Exhibt Hall Wedding


The New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center is 50,000+ square feet of newly renovated, modernly updated meeting and event space. The airy, Hill Country architecture and harmonious design create a welcoming environment that almost disguises the facility’s form-meets-function practicality. The versatile setting is perfect for everything from industry conventions to breathtaking weddings.

The event and meeting spaces include a column-free exhibit hall (11,780 sq. ft), a beautiful ballroom (9,288 sq. ft), five flexible garden rooms, and a secluded courtyard, featuring lush landscaping which provides the perfect area for meeting breaks and extends the overall space.

The facility includes wireless internet and all state-of-the-art equipment and technology you could need for a dynamic, highly memorable presentation. At the New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center, out-of-town groups have the luxury of coming to the lush Hill Country where Texans go for vacation.

New Braunfels – only 25 minutes to San Antonio, 40 minutes to Austin, and exactly where you want to be.
