Frequently Asked Questions

Explore downtown Washington DC venues for a panel discussion

If you're looking to educate an audience in an engaging manner, consider hosting a panel discussion! These special events bring together multiple experts to have a discussion in front of a live (or virtual) audience. Panel discussions are useful because they not only present information but also give the audience a chance to engage with the presenters with questions. Some events include breakout rooms for further information assimilation. All that's needed is the right venue with amenities for the evening.

Panel discussion venues with breakout rooms in Washington DC

Once the panel has shared information with the audience it can be beneficial to hold a breakout session during the event. Breakout sessions give people a chance to digest the information as a group and come back with questions or comments for the discussion members. Since you don't hold a breakout session with the entire audience, you'll need multiple separate spaces to function as breakout rooms.
The best panel discussion venues with breakout rooms include hotels, office buildings, coworking spaces, and business event centers. These venues all have multiple spaces available for rent. You'll need a main conference room, ballroom, auditorium, or other space for the panel discussion. Yet there also needs to be several separate meeting rooms, offices, or classrooms for the breakout sessions. You can also host these kinds of panel discussions at a university, library, museums, or other educational institution with multiple event spaces.

Washington DC venues with audio-visual equipment for a panel discussion

As important as the space itself is for any special event, you'll want to pay much more attention to the amenities when planning a panel discussion. These events require significant additions to be successful. You'll need a stage for the panel members to be seen easily, microphones and speakers for good audioโ€ฆA projector screen may be needed to show infographics and wireless internet is useful so guests can look up new concepts during the discussion.
Virtual panel discussions are also increasingly popular post-pandemic. Many venues are better equipped than ever to host panel discussions via Zoom or Skype. Their internet speeds have been upgraded to fiber-optic connections, which can support more robust traffic with fewer interruptions. They will also have video cameras, computer terminals, power ports in convenient places, and other essentials for a remote panel discussion.

Midtown Event Space with Natural Light
This event space was the perfect raw space for our pop-up art exhibit and panel discussion. We were really able to transform the space. Guests walked away from the night really impressed with the space. Juan and Laura were great throughout the process...
Michael T.
Spacious Theatre Event Space in Historic NOHO
Extremely responsive host. Space was as advertised (and I'd say even better than expected). One note that I didn't see through Peerspace was that there is a 4-hour minimum rental. I ran a panel discussion in the venue, and found Marc and team incredibly...

Spacious Theatre Event Space in Historic NOHO
the venue team made sure our brand came through. We had 100 guests through the door. Everyone had a seat for our panel discussion and room at the bar. We got lots of compliments throughout the night on the space! Looking forward to throwing more events here...
