Convene — a fast-growing network of meeting, event, and conference venues — has opened 15 locations since 2009 with new ones coming soon. The core of their business is providing technology balanced with quality design and hospitality services.
Each Convene location includes dedicated planning and production teams, fresh cuisine prepared on-site, and technology provided by Crestron, specially designed to encourage collaboration and spark creativity.
Scalable Crestron Solutions for Growth
Jonathan Wheatley, the Director of Technology at Convene, and his team work closely with integrators such as AdTech Systems, LLC to design scalable solutions for every room size, room type, or application.
Each room has its own AV design created to maximize usability and productivity, but with a standardized user experience so they could be easily supported in every location.
From meeting spaces to digital signage throughout the halls, Crestron solutions support Convene’s vision and goals by delivering a reliable, user-friendly experience for guests, building tenants, and Convene employees.
Within each room, there are inputs connecting guests to displays and AV functions through Crestron DigitalMedia technology. For those leading discussions, presentations, and conference calls, there are inputs that allow them to plug in their laptops and easily begin their presentations.
In the larger conference rooms, guests have the ability to record a session to a flash drive.
Convene meeting rooms are end-to-end Crestron Certified Designs. That means they’re engineered and validated by Crestron to ensure premium performance and reliability.
Impact on Convene
As Convene continues to open new full-service meeting, event, and workspace venues in major cities around the world, Crestron remains the standard for their AV room solutions.
Crestron technology creates a consistent user experience across every room and location, and contributes to the contemporary and comfortable atmosphere.
As corporations and tenants who have hosted events at Convene continue to express their appreciation of the simplicity and effectiveness of the technology, Convene is assured they’re right on target in meeting their customers’ needs.
Corporate meeting spaces have grown to include more technology that enables people to collaborate both in person and remotely. Convene needed to ensure that everyone of their locations could provide these capabilities, and make it simple to transition rooms from a traditional boardroom to a more advanced conference setup.
