Wedding band on the Millennium Center state

Elevating Entertainment at Millennium Center

Events are more than food and drink in a venue. Whether social or corporate, entertainment and its enhancements are part of the event experience. Here’s how we elevate entertainment at Millennium Event Center, downtown Winston-Salem’s premier full-service venue.

How Millennium Center raises the entertainment bar

Sight and sound are part of bringing all the senses to life at your wedding, social occasion, or corporate event. By creating an amazing entertainment experience, you make long-lasting memories for you and your guests. And great entertainment and event enhancements set the mood and often help create those once-in-a-lifetime images photographers live for.

Probably the most important entertainment option is music, whether it’s a DJ or live band. MEC has taken our mission of full service events to a new level with our in-house DJ. And we also recommend several other Winston-Salem DJ’s who’ve worked here.

When it comes to live bands, we are big fans of Sam Hill Entertainment in Richmond, VA. This entertainment agency provides great bands at reasonable prices. Their forte is live music for the special events industry. And entertainment booked at MEC has access to a complete AV team and a professional sound system that meets the exacting standards of national touring artists.

Tech is part of elevating entertainment

Is your venue tech-friendly when it comes to your event? Whether it’s visibility through cameras and screens, enough Internet “juice” to properly host your guests, or the necessity of live streaming your event to other locations, technology – or lack of it – can impact your entertainment experience.

When DJs, bands, and even photo booths are booked for Millennium Center, they simply plug and play. Our state-of-the-art technology can provide just about any service. Along with superior sound and qualified AV professionals, Millennium has permanent, controllable cameras to capture all the action and then project it on large screens around the room. Our full gigabit of Internet and 48 access points allow us to provide online service for more than 500 devices. And we can stream and record your event, too.

How to get that entertainment “cool” factor

Entertainment can also be found in the enhancements that elevate the “cool” factor of your event. Those enhancements often go hand-in-hand with decor and specialty rentals. Lighting, special effects, and other enhancements tie your event all together, spark the senses and provide amazing photo ops.

Millennium Event Center can set the tone for your occasion with more than 100 LED light fixtures, along with elegant crystal chandeliers and beads, disco balls, and moving lights. And we can define your space with uplighting as well as pipe & draping.

Imagine your event with Millennium Center’s sound, lights, and technology, along with its multiple spaces, five-star catering, and professional event design.

Don’t forget to make an entertaining exit

When it comes to weddings, everyone wants a memorable exit. Make yours from the elegant arched doors of the Millennium Center down the historic front steps with sparklers, snow machines, confetti – your desire. Then step into our Bentley Convertible or Mercedes S 600 for that final photo as you wave goodbye to family and friends.
