Detailed Arrangements


If your event involves outside speakers or panelists, please be sure to ask them far in advance whether they will need any special audio visual equipment for their presentation. This could include an overhead projector, slides, a laptop for PowerPoint presentations, etc. Please direct all requests for Audio/Visual setups to James Britt, our Special Events AV Staging Manager, at (212) 992-8634 or



Make any catering arrangements with the Office of Hospitality and Food Services. The menus are available online and the staff will discuss the options suitable for the type of event you are hosting, the budget for the event, the time of day and year it is being held, and the anticipated number of guests.

Nametags/Table Tents/Table Numbers

Create nametags for the event if necessary. Be sure to place an order from Staples in sufficient time to have the nametags available. If you need table tents for speakers at a table or panel, please be sure to order those as well. Although we normally do not provide name tag service, if you should require the Office of Hospitality and Food Services to create name tags for your event we will need all the names in the formatted excel spread sheet (please contact us for the appropriate format) 72 hours in advance in order to run a name check and produce the name tags. The fee associated with this service is a base of $225 plus an additional charge of $2.50 per name tag.


Room Setup

Prior to the event, please discuss the set-up with the Office of Hospitality and Food Services at (212) 998-6114 how the room should be configured and whether a podium or tables and water for the speakers are necessary. Depending on the time and location of the event, be sure to consider whether coat check will be available.
