Charlie "T" Jones Conference Center

The Charlie “T” Jones Conference Center at Tremendous Life Books is an exciting new addition to Mechanicsburg’s growing business landscape! With seating for up to 70 people, an integrated projection system, ample parking, and an on-site kitchenette, this new dedicated meeting facility will allow local businesses to host seminars, conferences, networking events, and other gatherings without having to leave their local area or rent rooms in more expensive venues. “We saw a real need for conference space right here in town”, says Tremendous Life Books CEO Tracey C. Jones, “and the Charlie ‘T’ Jones Conference Center has everything necessary to serve both the immediate community and other organizations throughout the region”.

Our meeting at the Charlie "T" Jones Conference Center was tremendous. It is conveniently located in downtown Mechanicsburg and has all of the AV equipment we needed for the day. The staff was accomodating and extremely helpful.

Named after well-known speaker, author, and entrepreneur Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, the new conference center is the culmination of a string of improvements and initiatives by Mechanicsburg-based Tremendous Life Books that began with the renovation of a dormant warehouse facility on 118 West Allen Street to serve as the company’s new corporate headquarters. The grand opening and ribbon cutting are scheduled for October 16th, 2013, with local business, church, chamber of commerce, and government leaders expected to attend. 


“Our new conference center is a fantastic new asset to the community”, added Tracey Jones, “and we invite our neighbors in the area to visit and take advantage of all it has to offer”.

The executives who make up our group just love the Charlie "T" Jones Conference Center. It is centrally located, comfortable, and quiet. I will definitely use the conference center again!
