Venue Spotlight: Center415 in NYC

We're working on a B2B conference at a new venue in the heart of NYC. It's Center415 and here's why we are putting our spotlight on it:

1. Central location: 5th Avenue and 38th Street is an easy commute from any direction.

2. Ground floor access: eases any entry traffic jams and prevents elevator “surges” (everyone waits in groups, registers in groups, etc.). Also provides strong foot traffic for public brand activations.

3. High Ceilings: gives an open feel with tons of natural light which is hard to find in midtown!

4. Two-floors: provides ample space to direct and engage your audience. We’re already thinking about an upcoming corporate retreat - wellness sessions on one floor, strategy sessions on the other!

Thinking of hosting an event in NYC, and don’t know where to have it? Book your free 15 minute consultation with EventMates. We’ll kick-start your planning with some venue recommendations and more.
