Convene to Open Ultra-Premium Meetings Venue in Midtown

Convene plans to open “Quorum by Convene,” an ultra-premium meetings & events venue at 1221 Ave. of the Americas in Midtown Manhattan, in December of this year. Quorum by Convene will occupy approximately 40,000 square feet on the 51-story building’s second floor. 

“In an effort to attract employees back for in-person meetings and events, there has been a flight to quality, with companies willing to spend more for an elevated and thoughtful experience,” said Amy Pooser, Convene president and COO. “We’re proud to introduce Quorum by Convene as our latest New York City venue. Quorum by Convene boasts a grand and luxurious design while still providing all the things companies have come to love about Convene: inclusive full-service, attention to detail, and next-level hospitality.” 

The venue will comprise six unique meeting rooms that can be configured to accommodate various event types, allowing for a total capacity of 630 people.
