Our friends at Business Furniture didn’t stop with the furniture. Technology is at the heart of what makes ROOM so effective for our clients. ROOM is equipped with their latest technology products, too:

eno interactive whiteboards:

Project your computer screen onto eno and navigate through documents, presentations or websites from the board. Make notes with a regular dry-erase marker or with the stylus. In one simple click, save all your interactive notes to post, print or email.


Connect and collaborate–it’s that easy. media:scape allows up to 6 users to plug in and share digital content by toggling between 2 large flat screen monitors. Ideal for small team projects when co-creating content is important.


ROOM supports and promotes our arts community by featuring work by local artists. The pieces in our space inspire and create a one-of-a-kind meeting experience. The art on our walls is for sale and we will help facilitate contact with the artists if a guest would like more information or would like to purchase a piece.


Sitting on the top floor of the Contemporary Art Center, ROOM is like no other meeting space in the region. The meeting rooms in the front of the building have some of the best river views around, while the back and side meeting spaces have fantastic city views. Less than a block away, you’ll find convenient access to the brand new Peoria Riverfront Museum and Caterpillar Visitors Center.

Several city parking lots are right across the street from ROOM. With convenient automated meters, you can simply input the time you will be at ROOM and take care of it all at once. If you prefer, we can provide passcodes and bill the parking fee along with your reservation.
