The Conference Center at NCBiotech

If you’d like to book an award-winning facility for your next meeting or conference, look no further. The Conference Center at NCBiotech was voted one of Convention South magazine's Elite 50, the “coolest and most meetings-friendly” conference facilities.

Sorry, we don't do weddings or purely social events, but the Conference Center at NCBiotech is available for a wide range of non-religious, non-political events and business meetings.

Royall Room

The smallest of the Conference Center spaces, the 6-person non-configurable Royall Room creates a big impact when you need limited space to hold a conference call, conduct an interview, hold a break-out session, enjoy a private lunch, or create an “office-away-from-the-office.” 

6-seat conference room

Ciba-Geigy Garden

Nowhere else in the Triangle will you find a conference center space as peaceful and secluded as the Conference Center at NCBiotech's walled-in garden and patio.

And, yes, the Garden has the power needed to provide music (live or recorded) for your event. Price: $500/day
