iQ Smart Center is a state-of-the-art conference center located within the 655 West Broadway office building. The space comprises two rooms, Edison and Tesla, which can be rented separately or together for larger groups (see additional listings). || Technology || The Tesla Room has 2 monitors on rolling carts at the front of the room for presenting, in addition to a mobile whiteboard, Polycom, and videoconferencing. Easily cast your content from your device to the monitors, and connect to audio with a USB cable. || Room Arrangement Options || Room Capacity - 46 (per fire code) Theater - 40 (chairs only) Classroom - 18 (tables and chairs) Classroom (Tight) - 24 (tables and chairs, tighter fit) Boardroom - 20 (tables and chairs in square shape) U-Shape - 15 (tables and chairs in U-shape) *Note: Built-in bench seating for 8 in back of room || Catering || You are welcome to use any caterer you like as long as they provide a compliant Certificate of Insurance. If your order is delivery only, insurance is not required. For your reference, we have Copa Vida coffee shop and Bruegger’s Bagels onsite for quick and easy breakfast and lunch options. For onsite alcohol consumption, you will need to purchase liquor liability insurance (we have a vendor we can refer you to). || Break Areas || You and your guests are welcome to use Deck655, our 6th floor gaming lounge and deck area that is also utilized by tenants of the building. You may use this space for breaks and phone calls during your reservation, provided the space is not reserved for a private event. Please note that we do not allow groups over 30, and catering setups are not allowed outside of the conference room. Deck655 is also available for rent; for more details, please visit deck655.com. || COVID-19 Policies || Face coverings are required for unvaccinated individuals and recommended for all as a courtesy to others in common areas of the building. Please remember to wash hands frequently, avoid close contact with others, and stay home if you feel sick or have a fever. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the building. iQ Smart Center has been treated with MicroShield 360, an anti-microbial coating that kills pathogens and prevents them from living on treated surfaces (as well as the lobby, restrooms, and elevator cabs and call buttons). Our janitorial team cleans and disinfects the space before and after each reservation with products that meet the CDC’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Great communication from Rachel, Jeff (parking), and the staff leading up to the event (and throughout!). We were given the room next door (Edison) instead, and it worked out perfectly for our new hire orientation. Thank you for making this so easy for us—I'd be happy to recommend the space to others.
Chris S. booked an off-site for 20 people
Very nice meeting area. The patterned glass walls don't allow for complete privacy but unless your meeting involves quite sensitive information it's not a problem. Excellent technology that worked well. Host Rachel was helpful and very easy to work with. The nice location in downtown San Diego is also its only downside as you and your attendees must deal with the typical downtown parking issues -- limited and expensive parking. Will definitely be back if the need arises again.
