(July 5, 2010)--The UTSA Office of Events Management and Conference Services (EMCS) will host the UTSA Event Showcase from 2 to 4 p.m., Friday, July 16, in the University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the Main Campus. The showcase is open to any UTSA faculty or staff members who participate in event planning. The showcase will offer information on food, decor and planning resources available on the Main Campus for meetings and special events -- including weddings.

"We have many confirmed event-related service providers who will be taking part in the showcase including hotels, The UPS Store, caterers and photographers, who will help us make this event even better than it was last year," said Nikki Lee, UTSA associate director of events management and conference services.

Visitors at the event can see the ballroom set up in various ways to highlight the many types of resources that EMCS and other event vendors can provide. Attendees will be eligible for door prizes by visiting five vendors at the event.

Since the ballroom's opening, EMCS has secured many lighting and decor options to enhance University Center-based events. Dramatic illuminated screens, columns, linens and centerpieces are available for rent and were selected to complement the ballroom's elegant and contemporary style. These items will be on display during the showcase.

"EMCS has the tools and relationships to make your event a successful one," said Lee. "We look forward to seeing you at the showcase and learning how we can be of assistance."
