The Bryant Conference Center is located in the heart of Tuscaloosa on The University of Alabama campus and is named for legendary, hall-of-fame coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. As West Alabama’s premier meeting facility, over one hundred thousand guests attend academic, business, or social functions here each year. In its 30 years of serving Alabama, the Bryant Conference Center has had the honor of hosting a number of distinguished guests such as former President George W. Bush, Rudy Giuliani, Joe Namath and many more.  The Bryant Conference Center is a favored venue for large organizations like Mercedes Benz, Eberspacher, and the Alabama School of Alcohol and Other Drug Studies.

The conference center was built in 1986, as part of a campus expansion plan that included a hotel, the Bryant Museum, the current Alumni Hall.  The hotel, now known as Hotel Capstone, is a few steps from the Bryant Conference Center. The conference center offers individually climate-controlled meeting rooms featuring integrated audio visual equipment, comfortable seating, and multiple lighting options.  The BCC has classrooms, board rooms, and event space perfect for training, meetings, and conferences. We are committed to providing reasonable prices and exemplary customer service. Our core mission of continuous improvement ensures that all of our guests receive our best efforts and professional service. At the Bryant Conference Center, we value and service a modest meeting for two just as we would a conference for a thousand guests.
