Frequently Asked Questions

If you're seeking a unique venue in New York City to host events like seminars, corporate meetings, or speaker series, then a lecture hall could be a great option. But what exactly is a lecture hall? Simply put, a lecture hall is an auditorium-style space designed specially for the purpose of giving lectures and presentations. Varying in overall size and seating capacity, these venues generally all share the same purpose: To provide a thoughtful environment that promotes learning. Lecture halls are ideal for educational purposes, such as in college settings, but those outside of academia can also book the spaces to host gatherings and corporate events.
From seminars to speaker series, lecture halls can accommodate several different types of events, which include:
  • Seminars: These are educational lectures designed to bring together experts in a given field to discuss a particular topic. They may provide hands-on activities and encourage group work throughout the event.
  • Corporate events: Hosting a company function in a lecture hall can be effective for training sessions or employee forums, as well as product launches or meetings with shareholders.
  • Speaker series: These events involve multiple speakers coming in to talk about their experiences and knowledge related to a specific area of interest. The event may feature one-off lectures or discussions meant to be part of a larger conversation on the same theme over several weeks or months.
  • Educational lectures: These offer educational insight into a wide range of subjects — such as history, science, and literature — while also providing an opportunity for discourse among attendees.

If you intend to host a lecture series, especially featuring female speakers, there are even more venue options in NYC to explore outside of lecture halls, such as conference rooms and flex spaces.
When hosting a female speaker series, finding the appropraite lecture hall is essential. It should be able to accommodate all attendees who have reserved a seat or ticket. Plus, the technical capabilities at the venue should match your requirements, from providing A/V equipment to supporting Wi-Fi access. After securing a venue and speakers, you’ll need to create a timeline for promoting the event. Effective promotion is key to a successful speaker series event. Start by creating an initial promotion plan that outlines how you'll reach potential attendees, such as through social media, email marketing, press releases, etc. When possible, leverage existing networks — of speakers or attendees — and identify new opportunities to collaborate with other similar events in NYC or beyond.
