Flexible Event Spaces
Conferences, events, trade shows and more have evolved beyond simply having tables and booths in a stuffy space. A venue that can be arranged and organized to promote interaction will provide you with many different options that can improve the flow and functionality of your event.
Sustainable Event Spaces
People are rethinking the logistics of events, particularly when it comes their impact on the environment. While green initiatives are important, they can also provide opportunities to streamline operations and support other local businesses. A few ways to enhance the sustainability of your next event are:
• Reducing or replacing plastic bags, straws, stirrers, cups, etc. with paper and other products.
• Offer food and beverage options that are locally sourced.
• Organize transportation for attendees with ride-sharing companies to reduce traffic.
Remote Communication Capabilities

From staying in touch with friends and family, to conducting business without being face to face, and even while hosting events, being able to offer the experience far and wide is becoming more necessary. Whether you are accommodating attendees that aren’t able to travel, employees that already work remotely, simply want to expand the offerings of your event to more in an affordable way, video conferencing software like Zoom and others make it possible. Your venue should have the capability to allow you to expand your event beyond their walls.
