Eastern North Carolina has gained a premiere meeting space in Wayne County – The Maxwell Regional Agricultural and Convention Center, referred to as The Maxwell Center. This high-end venue opened in March 2018 and features state of the art audio-visual and the equipment you need to bring your conference, convention, banquet or reception to life.

Located at 3114 Wayne Memorial Drive at the intersection of West New Hope Road, the multi-purpose facility’s overall size is 66,000 square feet and consists of two wings. The first houses offices for several agricultural agencies and services including offices for Cooperative Extension, Wayne Soil and Water, and Farm Service Agency. The second has top quality rental areas including a 14,500+ sq. ft. ballroom, multiple smaller size rooms, pre-function and post-event space in lobbies and halls, plus a 9,500 sq. ft. outdoor courtyard.

This new showpiece is now hosting many local, regional, and statewide events that add to the economic income of Goldsboro and Wayne County. The Maxwell Center is owned and managed by the County of Wayne. The City of Goldsboro is a partner in the undertaking by supplying land and support to this great project.

The Maxwell Center provides many in-house services that include beverages, audio visual, internet access, electrical and trade show decorating services, creating ease and convenience for any event.
