Keynotes & oral presentations

Irvine Auditorium: If the gargoyles on the auditorium’s octagonal, soaring, red brick exterior fail to capture your attention, the Main Hall will leave you speechless. Completed in 1932 by renowned Philadelphia architect Horace Trumbauer and distinguished by its inner walls depicting the philosophical history of the University, the Main Hall at Irvine seats 1,259 and houses the Curtis organ, the eleventh largest pipe organ in the world.
