Available at $500 a day (a $350 discount off the $850 non-member price), both garages offer fully equipped training facilities that companies can use for a variety of functions, ranging from new-product reveals to company educational sessions. The training centers are equipped with a suite of presentation and sound equipment, as well as a kitchen for catering and breaks, or catering can be provided upon request.
