Give us your best elevator pitch!
Convene at 101 Park Ave is the easiest, most technologically advanced, and service oriented place to host a better meeting in the midtown area. Conveniently located just one block from Grand Central Station, Convene offers full-service event space specializing in mid-sized meetings, conferences, and receptions. Inclusive of all meetings you will find state-of-the-art, user-controlled technology, in-house catering, and a full on-site, dedicated production staff to assist with the planning and execution of the event.
What would you say is Convene’s most unique offering?
Convene offers a unique culinary program, curating a fresh and seasonal menu to satisfy every palate. The menu supports a healthy and hearty experience and caters to large groups of people, covering the needs of all dietary restrictions. We also have a very creative culinary team, often taking obscure requests to go above and beyond in anyway possible.
What do you think would surprise most planners to know about your space?
With a concentration in mid-sized meetings and conferences, more than 75% of our location is made up of open reception space for all types of events. We offer after-meeting cocktail parties, three-course plated dinners, wine tastings, and anything our meeting planners can think of. If they have an idea that isn’t listed on our suggested offerings, our production staff will research how we can best execute.
What is one thing you wish more event planners knew about your space?
Our space can be easily transformed into a variety of different event settings. Sometimes it takes a bit of imagination, but with such flexibility, we can almost always convert our space to replicate our client’s vision.
What is the most memorable thing you’ve seen an event do with your space?
We had a home furnishing company host their launch party here last year. They turned the space into a showcase room while we catered the reception around them. It was amazing seeing the transformation of our standard layout to look like high-end furniture show room.
If you could throw one dream event, what would it be?
If I could throw one dream event, it would have to be the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Although we might have to go through a small renovation to increase capacity, I know our stellar tech team can handle all of their A/V needs.
This weekly series spotlights venues that can accommodate groups large or small for private and corporate events, conferences, meetings, weddings, business dinners, team building activities, cocktail parties, and more.
