Everglades Research and Education Center

EREC Conference Center

The University of Florida's IFAS Everglades REC Conference Center was funded by a challenge grant from the Sugar Cane Grower's Cooperative of Florida, matched by general revenue funding from the University of Florida.

The Conference Center is located adjacent to the Wedgworth Laboratory Building on the EREC campus. It serves as a multi-purpose facility which provides three meeting rooms that open for use as one large conference room. The Center guidelines limit the use of the facility to agriculture related functions: educational workshops, meetings, and conferences, that attract a large number of participants, both locally and internationally. State-of-the-art audio and visual presentation equipment is available.

  • Conference Center Schedule

    Reservations must be made in advance and a nominal fee is charged for the use of the facility. Charges go toward cleaning, repairs, and maintenance of the audiovisual equipment. Use of the facility is limited to UF groups, and direct agriculture, industry associated groups. First time users will need to complete and submit the Conference Center Use Agreement prior to use. The user will be responsible for basic clean‐up and trash removal; failure to do this may result in an additional charge.
