Additional Accolades

“This was our first experience with Boise Centre; however, working with their team is wonderful, everyone I interacted with held themselves to a high level of professionalism and service. Audio visual is always a point of anxiety, but not when handled by Boise Centre’s team. Having this off my plate was wonderful. I would recommend anyone host an event at Boise Centre.”

The Brethren Church
Brethren Church Denominational Conference

“Boise Centre’s professional event team is outstanding. I felt truly supported in my efforts to create an event that detoured from tradition. Prior to the event, I met with Boise Centre’s event team to brainstorm ideas for décor, lighting, stage design, and the dinner menu. The whole team contributed inspiring and unexpected ideas that were then woven into the event. Executive Chef Griffiths went above and beyond by creating a custom menu to complement the evening. Each course included a creative touch and nod to our industry. Our Annual Gala was a huge success.”
