Idaho Falls Auditorium District (IFAD) has just solidified a long-term partnership with Mountain America Credit Union, including the naming rights of the long-awaited events facility at Snake River Landing.

The property will now be marketed as Mountain America Center.

"Mountain America is pleased to partner with the Idaho Falls Auditorium District in the naming of the Mountain America Center,” says Sterling Nielsen, president and chief executive officer for Mountain America. “This venue will serve as a gathering place for the community and allow us to further support the eastern Idaho community by expanding financial education offerings.”

"Partnerships of private enterprise and government are absolutely necessary in order to make projects the size of this one a reality. We are so excited to welcome Mountain America to our project partnership,” said Chairwoman of the Board, Terri Gadzik. “They have stepped up to the plate to help the Event Center team change the face of the economy in eastern Idaho forever."

Among its many uses, the center will house a new Idaho Falls minor league hockey team and will be available to host concerts, sporting events, conferences, and other community events. The 48,000 square foot venue will feature an arena with seating up to 5,500 people and a state-of-the-art convention center with flexible configurations.

“IFAD is committed to delivering an Event Center to the Idaho Falls community,” says Rob Spear, Executive Director of the Idaho Falls Auditorium District. “Today Mountain America provided us with the financial momentum needed to move this project forward."
