About Convene
Convene is the nation’s fastest growing network of meeting, event, and conference venues that combine technology, culinary, production, and human-centered design into a transformative user experience. In partnership with leading commercial landlords, the company also leverages its workplace-as-a-service platform to provide on-demand solutions for building tenants and their employees.
Summary
Convene has completely reinvented the way that conference technology is integrated and used in meetings. Each room type is outfitted with an all-inclusive technology package that intends to cover every audiovisual resource that could reasonably be required. For special requests and needs, we provide complementary tech advisory during the pre-booking process so that integration can be planned for and properly budgeted in advance. Most importantly, we understand that the quality of technology productions is ultimately a public reflection on the meeting planner and the company he or she represents. That is why we carefully maintain our equipment like airplane engines by logging usage, proactively upgrading equipment, and changing bulbs in advance of the end of their useful life. The Service Manager is responsible for assuring the success of all programs, while maintaining a profitable operation and high quality products and service levels. He/she is expected to share ideas to promote business; reduce employee turnover; maintain revenue and payroll budgets; and meet budgeted productivity while keeping quality consistently high.
