Testimonials, General

I’ve seen my fair share of ballrooms and big meeting spaces, but this is the first time I remember actually being impressed with one. Highly recommended.
Their customer service is fantastic, and the price point is awesome! Other venues nickel-and-dime you – not Ambridge.

The Ambridge facility is beautiful, and it’s quieter than a hotel where people are coming and going all the time.

They have large spaces for sales meetings and  food shows plus smaller breakout rooms, and this combination works very well for us.

The space works really well for the 250 people we need to accommodate for each event. The location is central and there’s plenty of parking.

It’s more than just renting space, the staff at the Ambridge Center provides an old fashioned hospitality that says, “welcome to our home.”
The people who attend our career fairs at Ambridge comment that it’s a good-looking venue and a very convenient location. When I find a venue like Ambridge that I like, I stick with it!
The conference rooms are comfortable and I love that most of them have windows which let in natural light, a feature which is oftentimes missing in hotel conference centers.

I’m really pleased with the Ambridge staff.  They notice that we need things before we do!
They served a plated meal of salmon, steak, and ravioli. It was all delicious. Would definitely recommend this place.
