This Midtown East conference center and meeting space combines exquisite form with function to create the premier venue in Midtown Manhattan for business meetings, training sessions, tradeshows, concerts, screenings, conferences, banquets, seminars and lavish social functions. From conception to execution, the conference center extends far beyond hospitality operations by helping to facilitate the creation, production and delivery of high impact programs for its clients.
The 4,000 sq. ft. Event Studio can comfortably accommodate up to 25 exhibit booths with a separate presentation setting for 200 guests in theater-style seating, complete with finished walls, 12-foot studio ceilings and the latest in acoustics, lighting and staging capabilities.
In addition, The Grand Central Room is the perfect venue for NYC meetings, training sessions, special events, and banquets. The room is designed as a studio to offer a wide array of set-up plans, staging, and finishes. The meeting space is perfect for meetings of 100-150, events for 250, and banquets for 200 guests.
The venue's all-inclusive per person package provides an ease of budgeting and ensures that the learning and meeting environment is not fractured. The package approach often means significant savings as compared to “a la carte“ pricing at New York City hotels.
The conference center provides a full array of food and beverage services – from continental breakfast and continuous refreshment breaks for meeting participants, hot and cold luncheon buffet or deluxe sandwich buffet, to elegant banquets – both buffet and plated service. The venue's Food and Beverage team is experienced in all facets of innovative dining and welcomes the opportunity to design a memorable event. With Zagat-rated cuisine, the in-house culinary team provides well-designed, savory food selection for its continuous meeting breaks, luncheons, dinner meetings, banquets, and receptions. The food service's attention to detail includes fine china and crystal, European flatware and elegant linens as well as “white glove” four-diamond service.
You'll find comfort in the venue's expert knowledge and attention to detail and a conference services team member will always be there to answer questions and take care of any last minute requests. Our Conference professionals know and respect the responsibility you place in their hands and the expert staff along with the property’s state-of-the-art facilities make for an environment conducive to successful and innovative conferences or meetings in New York City.
