Welcome CURRENTS: The Ballroom at Adventure Aquarium
Currents, The Ballroom at Adventure Aquarium

Eight Marketing is pleased to announce that it is working with Adventure Aquarium on the grand opening of CURRENTS: The Ballroom at Adventure Aquarium.

CURRENTS will open with a VIP gala on Thursday, October 25th, with a press preview on Tuesday, October 23rd.

Designed by architect Robert M. DeHaven of West Chester, PA, with capacity for a 550 person sit-down dinner or a reception for 1,250, CURRENTS will feature a flexible event space including a 2,000 square-foot pre-function area with spectacular river views of the Philadelphia skyline. The main ballroom space can be divided into three separate, smaller rooms to simultaneously accommodate several functions.

Daytime corporate meetings, weddings, private evening functions and more will take place in front of three movie screen-sized windows that provide jaw-dropping, up-close views of dozens of enormous sharks living in the Aquarium's 550,000-gallon Shark Realm. CURRENTS offers state-of-the-art audio and video capabilities and flat- screen monitors to personalize any event.
