Dakota Event Center

aberdeen, sd

The Dakota Event Center (DEC) is the premiere event center in the Aberdeen area. The facility is linked by enclosed corridors to the Holiday Inn Express & Suites and The Hampton Inn & Suites.  The project design driven by these connection links and the owner’s desire to make the separate banquet and restaurant portions distinctively different in appearances, yet act as a
cohesive design.

The program included a series of 6 banquet halls as well as a restaurant and bar with full service commercial kitchen and various support spaces.
