Hallrich Incorporated has worked with The NEW Center for several years and have been more than satisfied not only with the facility but more so with the staff and the warmth and quality of service we have been given, no matter what type of event we were having for our company. We have and will continue recommended The New Center to others for their events, which has also included a wedding ceremony and reception that was handled with the same warmth and professionalism as any of our corporate events.

The NEW Center has proven, once again, to be a terrific venue for our special volunteer event. We are completely comfortable returning year after year with a large, themed party hosting approximately 300 guests. The food is consistently great, the staff are a pleasure to work with as we do new, wild and crazy things with our themes each year. Top notch- you won’t be disappointed.

We had my daughters wedding at The New Center in August 2017. First I have to say how wonderful the Events Manager was. She was always kind, very prompt in returning phone calls or emails. Sometimes it seemed like she knew what we needed before we asked. She is very easy to work with. Her staff was wonderful, very professional. We had many compliments on the food (which was very good) and the venue (very modern). I don’t have any complaints at all. I would recommend this venue to anyone.

Mother of the Bride

The team at the NEW Center were incredible to work with. They took the time to answer all of my questions leading up to our reception (and there were a lot of questions). They helped turn our food station dreams into a reality for dinner and helped keep our reception running smoothly throughout the night. The food that was provided was outstanding and several of my friends complimented the bartending staff and said they were incredibly fun throughout the night. Thank you for helping to make our reception wonderful, I will be recommending The NEW Center to all of my friends in the future for events and wedding receptions.


Working with The NEW Center was awesome. Any questions or concerns we had were quickly addressed. They provided our daughter with a beautiful reception. The decorations and room layout were exactly as promised. We chose to have the carving/serving stations and everyone of our guests raved about how great the food was. (you have to try the vegetable gravy, it might not sound good but believe us you could drink it, it was that good). The Events Manager coordinated perfectly with our other vendors so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We can’t praise The NEW Center enough! It was absolutely the perfect choice for our daughters wedding reception. if you are considering having a special event here, don’t think twice, just nook them. You won’t regret it.

Father of the Bride

The NEW Center at Northeast Ohio Medical University was the perfect reception venue. We received so many compliments on the food and the beautiful setup of the venue. The NEW Center is new, very modern and easy to dress up without having to hide outdated interior design. Their team was a pleasure to work with, very accommodating and made the process so easy along the way. We would recommend this venue to any new bride and groom!

We had our wedding & reception here in October and it was PERFECT! We wanted somewhere that we could have everything at the same place and The NEW Center met all our wants! There is the perfect spot for cocktail hour overlooking the campus and it’s beautiful landscaping, which also happened to be the spot we had our ceremony! Our guests RAVED about our food! Wedding food, seriously?!? Usually the same old boring choice with bland flavors, well not here! Everyone I talked to after told us how good ALL our food was and they were so impressed! The prices are super reasonable for the area too! The landscaping here has so many different options for pictures and it is very pretty, especially in the fall. The wedding coordinator was amazing and helped in every way possible (which is huge when dealing with so many different vendors!) We are SO happy we picked The NEW Center for our special day, I can’t say enough good things about this location! If you’re looking for somewhere in NEO, definitely check this place out!
