Actual networking venue bookings

mixer and networking party

Myself and a group were considering planning a part social mixer/networking, part party type event and your venue seemed like a really great fit. The attendees would be engineering professionals or interns this summer in their early to mid 20s. In terms of timing, we can be flexible by approximately an hour but would still prefer 10:00-2:00 AM to allow for setup and cleanup. I noticed that your hourly rate differs and was wondering what it would potentially cost.

corporate technical presentations

I would like to host a corporate meeting/user group for 60 next month. The event would take around 3-4 hours, and would consist of technical presentations in a classroom-style setting, followed by light catering and drinks for networking.

photographer networking shoot

I am a photographer with background in travel, nature and wildlife. Over the last couple years, I have moved into portraits. I now work with aspiring models to help them build out portfolio shots (and mine). I am looking to do a couple photographer/model networking shoot with 5 photographers and 5 models. This is all for personal use only, not commercial. I came across your space on Peerspace and wanted to reach out. As background, I am trying to create an event where there can be multiple locations so we can have 5 shots at same time. These would be with minimal or no props. Basically carving up space so keep out of each other’s line of sight. It looks like you have a huge raw area which would be great for this.
