Actual networking venue bookings

networking event

I am currently looking for a unique location to host a networking event. We need a spot to accommodate up to 100 reception style and then space for catering and possibly entertainment. Do you have availability on any of the above dates?

100 people
5 hours
$4,200.00

networking event with guest speakers

The event will be a networking event and we'll have one or two guest speakers. I'll bring wine and maybe some light bites. I'll also bring cups and napkins. No chairs needed except the one behind your desk which we can use for registration. Don't need any tables either. If you can hire your gal to be our bartender, we'll need her from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. I believe you said $25/hour + $25 tip, correct? As we discussed, if you have a current exhibition or use your "house art" for a backdrop, that will be awesome. We have one banner that we use as a photo backdrop which has its own stand. I also have 2 22x28" posters that sit on easels which I'll bring with me. The crowd will be architects, designers, visual merchandisers, educators and vendors to the trade (flooring, lighting etc..) Number of guests may be as low as 40 or as high as 140 - it all depends on who's available that night etc.. I'll put 140 in the next box.

networking event for non-profit

I am looking to host a networking event with powerpoint presentation for a startup non-profit organization. Does your space offer ability to hook up a laptop for a PP presentation?

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.
