Charles Sorbie Conference Room

The Charles Sorbie Conference Room provides a large, inviting and comfortable space that is equipped to host meetings, seminars and workshops.  On one side of the Conference Room there is an area for chair seating directly in front of a projection screen which is ideal for seminars or lectures.  On the right side of the room there is an area for meetings with a configurable table and 50" plasma screen mounted on the wall at the end of the table.  Please note that the room can be re-configured to suit the needs of a particular event.

Our Conference Room provides a podium equipped with video, audio and ethernet ports to support a laptop connection.  A laptop can be connected at the podium to a ceiling mounted projection unit which displays to a 92" Da-Lite electric projection screen at the front of the room or to a 50" plasma screen located at the back of the room or to both.  Please note that we do not supply a laptop.

There is a permanent KGH PC connected to the KGH network that is accessible with a valid KGH system account. This system's display can also be projected through the overhead projection unit and/or plasma screen.
