Event Types

The Cintas Center arena can accommodate various events through a wide variety of setups and configurations. Possible arena events include:

Sports

The arena's hardwood playing surface can be used for basketball and volleyball. In "practice set" mode, with space for six half-court basketball playing areas, the arena is ideal for camps and clinics. Additionally, the Kohlhepp Family Auxiliary Gym can also be used for games and practices. The arena has also been used for dance and cheerleading competitions.

 

 

Concerts

With the hardwood floor removed, the arena becomes the perfect setting for concert performances. The arena's 10,250-seat capacity can be reduced to a "half-house set" for a more intimate concert setting. The Cintas Center's team of audiovisual professionals can also transform the arena into a space fit for theatrical productions through the use of special lighting effects and rigging.

 

 

Graduations

Every year in late May and early June, the Cintas Center becomes "Graduation Central." In the span of three weeks, the building is home to 25 or more commencement ceremonies of high schools around the Cincinnati area. The arena is tailored to each school's specifications and unique audiovisual amenities make each ceremony an event to remember. With its ample and easily accessible free parking, friendly and knowledgeable guest services staff, and a team of highly trained event planners, the Cintas Center is the perfect place to celebrate a student's milestone.

 

Corporate Events

Employee development sessions, company rallies and trade shows can be held at the Cintas Center when the office just isn't big enough to accommodate large meetings. A large general session can be held in the main arena while the concourse and banquet rooms are set for small groups. The Cintas Center can be an office away from the office with a full array of audiovisual equipment and building-wide, high-speed wireless Internet access.

 

 

Social Events

The Cintas Center's main arena can be transformed into an excellent party venue. With plenty of space for dancing and dining, the Cintas Center is an ideal spot for a high school prom, silent auction dinner or any large-scale gathering.

 

 

 

Religious Services

Perfect for large congregations of any denomination, the Cintas Center can be used for religious and spiritual services and celebrations. The Cintas Center can accommodate general sessions in the main arena while breakout sessions or prayer groups take place throughout the concourse or in the Schiff Conference and Banquet Center. Our in-house catering staff can also provide refreshments or meals to attendees and is equipped to handle special dietary requirements. The Cintas Center's audiovisual professionals can capture the service in a variety of formats and even stream videos over the Web for those in the congregation unable to attend.
