About Us

Celebrating 10 Years!

The Phillips Event Center (PEC) debuted in Austin Texas in the summer of 2006.  The PEC is owned and operated by the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin, a local nonprofit trade association that advocates for the home building industry in the Greater Austin area.

When the Board of Directors for the HBA of Greater Austin began plans to build a “new home” for the HBA Offices, the concept for the Phillips Event Center was born with a mission to become a premier corporate and special event venue that could be utilized and enjoyed by Austin residents for years to come. The Phillips Event Center was named after local homebuilding legend, Nash Phillips.
Thank you for considering the Phillips Event Center for your next special event.
