Capitol Event Center is located in The Historic MAY Building at 1020 11th Street in Sacramento, California. The building also includes 1029 K Street, the former site of Pyramid Alehouse. Sutter Capital Group, a locally-owned real estate investment firm that specializes in discovering and reviving the potential in Sacramento real estate, purchased the building in 2014. The purchase of the property included the highly respected CSAC Conference Center, located on the second floor. This space was utilized as a location for advocacy groups to hold conferences and instructional courses. The CSAC Conference Center became a well-known gathering place for the Capitol Crowd and beyond. Shortly after the purchase, Sutter Capital Group began updates to the Conference Center to include an aesthetic transformation as well as a complete update to the Audio Visual system. In July of 2015, Sutter Capital Group and its management company, Hammer Real Estate Group, invested significant capital to transform the room into what it is now known as - the Capitol Event Center.
