Less is More When it Comes to Conference Space

The fate of expansive high-tech conference rooms located on multiple floors of a highrise or in corporate suites may soon be a thing of the past, according to an article in the summer issue of Development magazine. In 2009, Ryan Simonetti, CEO and co-founder of Convene, sought out to create day conference centers in office buildings in key markets throughout the U.S.

His hunch that the rise in mobile workforces and open office environments would generate a need for flexible private meeting space was spot on. Four years later, with conference centers in Manhattan and in suburban Washington, D.C., Simonetti’s firm was ranked as the fastest growing business in New York City by Crain’s New York Business.

What makes Convene so unique that it expects to expand into other markets within the next two years? Find out by reading the “Conference Space Meets the Sharing Economy” in the summer issue of Development magazine.
