Where do I get tables and chairs for my event?
During your consultation The AgriLife Events Staff will help determine what equipment – such as tables, chairs, and linens – you will need. The AgriLife Center has an inventory of tables and chairs for events of 100 or less, but all linens and any additional equipment must be rented from a third-party vendor. The AgriLife Events Staff will make arrangements for any of these rentals needed for your event.
Do you have a preferred caterers list?
You are welcome to use any licensed professional caterer of your choosing, but if you need ideas or suggestions we do have a list of caterers that have provided excellent services in our facility or have been recommended to us.
Is alcohol allowed in The AgriLife Center?
Yes. The AgriLife Center is a Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) approved site for use of alcohol, however some additional rules will apply – such as the requirement of UPD Security services, who may serve alcohol, and additional paperwork that must be filed. Please contact AgriLife Events Staff prior to your event for more information regarding rules and regulations pertaining to alcohol possession or use.
