  • Are there enough extension cords / power strips for everyone sitting at the tables to plugin in their laptops?


  • Does the facility have extension cords, surge protectors, and a screen for presentations in the event space(s)?

There are extensions cords and a screen for presentations.

  • What are the number of rooms available simultaneously, capacity, and facilities in the event we break into groups?

The office is an open floor plan layout. There are two large rooms available for breakouts (can seat 6 - 8 people), three smaller conference rooms (can seat 4-5 people) and a space with couches and circular tables that would work well to facilitate breakout discussions.

  • Do we have Large (4x6 or bigger) sticky notes?

Not in the office
