At the RLA, we provide an extensive array of A/V technology with every room rental. The easy-to-use system allows presenters to load and start any file in a few easy steps. Also, in the unlikely event you need assistance, there is always an Audiovisual Technician on hand at no charge.
The largest room at the RLA, with a seating capacity of 350, the Great Room is ideally suited for large conferences, keynote addresses, trade shows, and all-staff meetings. Two new ceiling mounted LCD projectors are connected to Smart Technology Podiums, allowing the presenter to switch from PowerPoint, to video, to satellite TV – all with a touch of the monitor or the flick of a remote.
