Our Secret To Success Is Out

People. Plain and simple—that’s what sets Q Center apart. Sure, we have a 95-acre campus with on-site recreational amenities and team building opportunities like no other. Of course we have award-winning event production services and flexible conference spaces for groups of all sizes. And it’s a given that we have dining options and refreshment and snack areas to fuel your mind and your spirit. What’s unexpected is the level of service and hospitality everyone at Q Center naturally gives to our guests. From experienced meeting planners who take the stress off you to world-traveled audio/visual techs who make sure your presentations are flawless to seasoned chefs who relish in developing new menu items…each and every one of us is focused on one thing: making your team better than when they arrived.

It Is Easy Being Green

Don’t stop being eco-friendly just because you’re away from home. At Q Center, sustainability is part of our planning process for each event. In fact, we’re a silver level IACC Certified Green Business.


We recycle everything from paper and glass to printer toner cartridges and carpet squares. An average of four tons of cardboard, 2.5 tons of paper, and 50 cubic yards of plastic, glass and aluminum are recycled each month.

Paper Products

All on-site products are purchased through a mill that procures 100% of their manufacturing electricity from emission-free wind power.

Food Donations

Twice per week, Q Center employees deliver leftover pans of food to Lazarus House, a community home that supports people transiting through phases of life in the Kane County area.


Organic waste from our kitchen is composted and sent to local farmers to complete the natural life cycle. We purchase the vegetables they grow and serve them in our dining rooms. We also compost grass clippings and other yard waste and use them to fertilize our grounds.

Cleaning Products

The six most frequently used cleaning products for the guest rooms and conference areas are Green Seal certified.

In A Class All Our Own

Originally starting as a liberal arts college and evolving into a private corporate training facility, Q Center has its roots in learning. And we continue to learn every day—about our guests, what’s new in the industry and how we can create the absolute best experiences for you.
