“I can’t say enough about my experiences over the years working with NJPAC. I have been doing events here since 1998 and they just keep getting better. The staff is wonderful to work with. They are professional, responsive, resourceful, and think outside of the box to solve problems. They bend over backwards to accommodate the needs of their clients and go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. I love having events at NJPAC.”

“Each year the YMCA of Newark and Vicinity hosts its Leaders and Legends Recognition and Scholarship Dinner at NJPAC. We convene our dinner in the auditorium lobby with the lights of the city creating a spectacular backdrop. The staff is creative and knowledgeable in helping us plan and find solutions for the logistical issues encountered in planning an event of this scope. Additionally they stay close by throughout the evening to ensure that all goes well. I highly recommend NJPAC. Our guests love it.”

“We have held our biennial gala at NJPAC since 1998 . . . which can only mean that we and our guests have found no reason to go elsewhere. The staff is a joy to work with! Their expertise and professionalism ensure smooth sailing through the planning stages of our event. That, coupled with the sheer magnificence of the venue, continues to deliver a night that leaves us satisfied that we’ve created an experience that will keep our guests coming back for more.”
— Marianne Devlin Director, Special Events and Publications, Overlook Foundation

“Indeed, our guests were well served throughout the evening, from start to finish. As expected, they were also very impressed with your amazingly stunning venue. I have received nothing but the highest reviews on all accounts. Look forward to doing business with you, again, in the near future.”
