We will provide Clorox Wipes for the organization’s use. If trash accumulates, it must be removed from the room and placed in the dumpster located off of the loading dock.
Who do I contact when I reach the venue and/or when my meeting or event is over?
A designated representative from your organization must check in with our staff at the front desk upon arrival and also check out with our staff before leaving. Please allow sufficient time to walk the spaces with our staff before leaving the property. In the event of damage to the rooms or equipment, the host organization will be responsible for reimbursing us for the repair and/or cleaning required. We will provide notice of such issues within five (5) working days of the conclusion of the event. Companies contracted for any cleaning or repairs will be selected and managed by us, and a bill will be sent directly to the organization following completion of services and should be paid promptly.
