To book an event please contact our staff who will coordinate/reserve your date as well as provide you with the required agreements and information.

In order to retain an event booking a signed Reservation Agreement must be received within five (5) working days of booking. The signed agreement may be mailed, faxed or emailed. The THCC also requires a Lessee to pay a 50% deposit for all suite fees within five (5) working days of signed Reservation Agreement. All deposits and fees are payable by check (made to SJR State), credit card or money order. The remaining balance is due 15 days prior to the event. If the booking is made within 15 days of the event, the entire amount is due at time of the booking. This agreement is not transferable.

Nonprofit organizations are eligible for a 20% discount on their suite fees by showing documentation provided by the Internal Revenue Service stating their status, for example, Letter 1045. Those patrons who are exempt from paying sales tax must provide a Consumer's Certificate of Exemption, Form DR-14.
The THCC requires a Lessee to acquire and submit a Certificate of Liability Insurance to show they have in force bodily injury and property damage liability protection in an amount not less than $1,000,000 combined single limit and indicating St. Johns River State College as an additional insured for the date and duration of the event. Individuals or companies that do not have this insurance may purchase liability insurance through the college's Florida College System Risk Management Consortium. Costs vary, depending on the category of the event.

If the Lessee opts to acquire his or her own insurance, the Lessee must deliver a Certificate of Liability Insurance to the THCC at least ten (10) days prior to the event.
The Conference Center is available from 7:30 a.m. until 11:30 p.m., Monday through Sunday. A half day rental constitutes up to four (4) hours, and a full day rental constitutes up to eight (8) hours. Any event exceeding the reserved time will cause the Lessee to pay a $100.00 per hour charge. If an extension of the contracted reserve time is required, it must be requested in writing five (5) days prior to the event date. Additional space is subject to availability and the ability of the conference Center to provide the necessary services.
Enjoy the luxury of choice when it comes to catering!

The Thrasher-Horne Conference Center works with a variety of caterers, giving you the flexibility and control as well as competitive pricing to meet your specific needs. Our recommended caterers provide a wide range of services from snacks or light hors d' oeuveres to themed dinners or award-winning barbecues. If you prefer to use your own caterer, all that is necessary is to provide a copy of their business license and a Certificate of Liability Insurance naming St. Johns River State College as an additional insured on the date of your event. In addition, you and your caterer will need to sign our Thrasher-Horne Conference Center Catering Policy.

If alcohol is planned for your event, a copy of the appropriate liquor license and liquor liability insurance is required. You will also need to complete a THCC Alcoholic Beverages Policy Application. Upon approval, the Lessee assumes full responsibility for complying with the state of Florida's liquor laws, local ordinances and other laws and regulations as may be applicable to the event.

If needed, please contact us to obtain a copy of our recommended caterers list.
