Renting The RAC at Rutgers? We Can Help
The Rutgers Athletic Center, better known as The RAC, has been the home of Rutgers basketball since it opened more than 40 years ago. The 8,000-seat arena has also hosted a variety of other university events, including wrestling matches, gymnastics meets, and the annual Rutgers University Dance Marathon.
But you don't have to be organizing a Rutgers event to host at The RAC. This facility is available for public rental throughout the year. With its drop-down video board, LED boards and signs, and full air-conditioning system, the RAC is ideal for trade shows, speaking events, concerts, and other special events that require a large space.
If you're looking to rent The RAC for an upcoming concert, trade show, or other event, you'll likely need some help from outside vendors. The Hurricane Productions team are experts in this space, and we'd love to help you bring your vision to life.
