Discovering new venues offering unique experiences is often challenging for meeting and event planners. At the Houston Stampede Event Center (HSEC), planners need look no further. Situated at 11925 Eastex Freeway, the venue is 12 miles from the George R. Brown Convention Center and offers 35,000 square feet of event space.

The facility features a country karaoke stage, a 3,000-square-foot hardwood dance floor and a mechanical bull named Megawatt. Team-building activities include mechanical bull riding, karaoke singing, dancing, casino gaming and live armadillo racing. Attendees can also have their photo taken on live Texas longhorns. 

The event center provides turnkey planning for catering, audio-visual and beverage services, and can accommodate groups of up to 4,000 inside and more than 15,000 people outside. HSEC has an 18-foot LED screen and more than 50 LED monitors throughout the venue for personalized branding, marketing or honoring event sponsors. The facility also provides paved parking for 3,000 vehicles. 

“People are fascinated by Texas’ Western culture,” says Rob Fedrows, president of HSEC. “At Houston Stampede Event Center, we create one-of-a-kind experiences for all types of events. Guests are immersed in the total Texas experience.”
