Conference hall
Small conference room
High tech conference hall

A conference hall or conference room is a room provided for singular events such as business conferences and meetings. It is commonly found at large hotels and convention centers though many other establishments, including even hospitals,[1] have one. Sometimes other rooms are modified for large conferences such as arenas or concert halls. Aircraft have been fitted out with conference rooms.[2] Conference rooms can be windowless for security purposes. An example of one such room is in the Pentagon, known as the Tank.[3]

Typically, the facility provides furniture, overhead projectors, stage lighting, and a sound system.[4]

Smoking is normally prohibited in conference halls even when other parts of buildings permit smoking.[5]

Sometimes the term 'conference hall' is used synonymously with 'conference center' as, for example, in 'Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall'.
