Fees and Guidelines – Space Request Guide

Submit Request

NOTICE: Due to the proximity of the event dates we are no longer accepting requests for meeting rooms.

  • Key information needed includes the date of your event along with the start/end time, approximate number of people and the room set needed. We will not know if we have space available until we have this key information!
  • Select your EVENT PLANNER (person that will make all the arrangements for your event and receive all communication regarding the event) and your ON-SITE CONTACT (person responsible during the event). Many times the EVENT PLANNER and ON-SITE CONTACT at your organization will be the same person.
  • When submitting, you can select “private event” if you do not want your event listed anywhere – will not be listed in the program book, web site, personal scheduler or mobile app.
  • If you want your event listed but it is “by invitation only” please include that information in your Event Title but do not select private event.
  • Submit your request and pay the space request fee ($85 to $200/room/day depending on profit vs. non-profit organizations). No fee for event listings only/off-site events.
