At the DECC, the 12,000 square foot Harbor Side Ballroom provides spectacular panoramic views of Lake Superior. It offers the flexibility to divide into five separate meeting rooms with 5,000 square feet of pre-function space. Working together with event organizers, the in-house catering and exposition services departments will make this event one not to miss.
