Innovative Private Meeting and Event Space, OFFSITE, Opened in Manhattan
Tuesday, July 10, 2012, OFFSITE opens its doors at 52 West 39th Street to introduce a one-of-a-kind corporate meeting and events space designed and wired to inspire creativity and optimize productivity. The sprawling, 4,200 square foot, 3-story enclave is the newest evocative venue for board meetings, brainstorming sessions, focus groups, product launches and social events.
In an age where companies operate and collaborate virtually as much as they do in offices scattered around the globe, Shaun Kessler and Patrick Everett spearheaded an initiative to create a versatile, high-functioning sanctuary for professionals in the business hub of the world. “Manhattan is the most traveled-to destination in the country for business, and we noticed a void in the Midtown market for multipurpose venues,” says Kessler. “We’re so excited to see the reality of our space come to life so we can begin to host businesses and corporations for their meetings and events.”
OFFSITE’s use of space is deliberately minimalist with vibrant accents and original design throughout. Upon entering, guests are greeted by a spacious corporate and creative oasis. A white, black, grey and silver palette acts as the backdrop to a spectrum of playful pops of color in the lighting, furniture, carpeting, and custom-designed wallpaper. This juxtaposition creates a balance that speaks to OFFSITE’s concept for a productive, creative and versatile environment.
From the state-of-the-art, A/V-enabled Halcon conference room table that seats 30 in the Mezzanine to the inspirational Underground set along an urban Rio de Janeiro backdrop, OFFSITE is equipped to fully accommodate the executive and the creative professional. While each room loosely suggests a specific purpose – a spacious lounge for free-flowing conversation on the street level, an executive conference room on the upper level and a versatile open space with classroom-style seating on the lower level – the space is set and designed to be fully adaptable to the client’s preference.
OFFSITE boasts technology that is second-to-none, including a complete A/V and conferencing system with multi-screen synced projections on five 60-80” LED screens, digital smart board, live camera feed capabilities, professionally designed sound and lighting, iMacs, iPads, and live music input integration. Innovative features such as floor-to-ceiling whiteboard walls and a 50-foot architectural feature wall with product display shelving ensures that OFFSITE is equipped for any internal, client-facing, or social event.
The Main Floor of OFFSITE comfortably accommodates up to 60 guests seated or 150 standing, and curtained room dividers allow for impromptu brainstorming or breakout sessions. The Mezzanine’s conference room overlooks the Main Floor via sliding glass doors and is designed to spark imaginative thinking and discussion. OFFSITE’s Underground offers flexible seating for up to 25 people in a more casual space to hash out ideas, hold a training session, or host an intimate party.
The space is equipped with three fully stocked kitchenettes, five private restroom facilities, and an on-call staff to handle all necessary details to ensure any event or meeting goes off without a hitch. “Service and hospitality are top-of-mind with us,” says Everett. “When you book at OFFSITE, we handle everything—from coordinating catering to arranging what time the CEO’s car should arrive.”
A short walk from Grand Central Station, Penn Station, Port Authority Bus Terminal and virtually every subway line in Manhattan, OFFSITE’s location is a major draw for busy executives and teams gathering from various cities. OFFSITE is within walking distance from the city’s most popular attractions, hotels, and world-class restaurants.
