In the heart of Irving, The Pavilion at the Toyota Music Factory is part of a new mega entertainment complex that includes more than 20 restaurants and bars just next to the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas and its nearby hotels. With live performances from Beck to Barry Manilow, the Pavilion offers a variety of concert experiences, ranging from lawn seats to performances packages that provide exclusive access to the VIP club and reserved seats with food and beverage service.

But it’s not just the music: The Pavilion’s design is flexible enough to accommodate smaller parties of 800 people, as well as blockbuster corporate events. Since opening in September 2017, it has hosted dozens of special events including tradeshows, corporate shareholders meetings and cocktail mixers. In total, the venue can accommodate 7,000 spectators and has 100,000 square feet of private event areas. The indoor venue features electronic doors that fold up horizontally at the rear of the venue to unveil panoramic views of the lawn and create an open-air pavilion. The Pavilion is one of the few convertible concert venues in America with the capability to change the facility from a climate controlled indoor theater to an indoor/outdoor amphitheater with just the push of a button. 

The flexibility of the space and its design to be a live entertainment venue allows planners to think differently when coordinating an event in this unique space rather than just using a typical ballroom setup.  The VIP Toyota Lounge can hold 50 and leads into a sizable lobby space where event planners can use their creative vision. The Pavilion is a multiform entertainment facility, and the unique nature of the private-event space offers an intimate setting for corporate events, board meeting dinners, fundraisers, galas and more. A creative vision, indeed.
