Venues for Meeting in the City

Top Picks

We love having events in large cities. There’s so much to choose from and the atmosphere is stimulating – no matter which city you choose. They are all easy to get to, easy to navigate around, and provide endless opportunities for your guests before and after their sessions. And though it was challenging for us to choose, here are a few of our top picks for venues for business meetings in large cities:

The National Museum of American Jewish History is located in one of the most historic square miles in the country in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It features stunning views of Independence Mall and other iconic sites. It is known for its amenities and first-class hospitality. The museum can comfortably accommodate 500 guests in 7 meeting rooms. Theaters, classrooms, a ballroom concourse, and magnificent outdoor rooftop terrace spaces are all available. There is also a flexible list of kosher and non-kosher caterers available, along with convenient onsite parking for a nominal fee. State of the art equipment can be provided along with their expert on-site tech support

The Conference Chicago at University Center is another one of our Top Picks for Events in Large Cities. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, it provides a distinct and sophisticated meeting environment. It is also literally steps away from Chicago’s magnificent lakefront with its beautiful beaches, world renowned Millennium and Grant parks, marvelous museums, restaurants, and retail shopping. The Conference Chicago at University Center can accommodate 175 in its largest of 10 unique rooms – including a stunning outdoor terrace with fireplace. There is a total of 15,000 square feet of flexible meeting space in a wide variety of configurations at the University Center. It’s also known for its superior business services and can provide full service state of the art audio visual equipment with on-site tech support —all at competitive rates.

You can’t beat New York City as an event location and there are limitless venues to choose from. However, we had to highlight the Cornell University ILR School’s New York City Conference Center as our next Top Pick. Its location is epic: in the heart of New York City in the historic RCA Victor building on Lexington Avenue. Their passionate dedicated staff is famous for consistent high-quality service and their extreme focus on details. They will help you achieve your goals for your event every step of the way and make your planning a stress-free experience.
