Booking Events

PNC Arena offers a multitude of space for you to host your next event. Whether you are looking to host a smaller event or something of a larger scale, our experienced staff will help you sort out all of the details, providing you with superior service.

What to Consider When Planning

To facilitate finding the ideal space within PNC Arena, please consider the following information:

  • Number of Participants
  • Scope of Event
  • Budget
  • Ideal Time Frame

Due to the nature of arena booking, full arena rentals are the most conducive to reserve months in advance. Private events to be held during holidays and during prime time (5pm-midnight) are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and usually confirmed four - six weeks out from the desired event date.

  • Seating capacities up to 19,500
  • Ideal for hosting concerts, conventions and theatrical events
