The initiative will see both venues cross promoted to its shared client base within the scientific, pharmaceutical and technology sectors.
Both venues offer a range of technical solutions, facilitating outside broadcasts for international events, such as video or music streaming and a wi-fi infrastructure for multiple-platform users, allowing events to be held simultaneously at both venues, connected via sound and video link.
Alicia Earls, communications manager for corporate events at the Science Museum, said: "We are very excited to start working with the New York Hall of Science, and we are confident that this venture will generate many new business opportunities for both venues. With this collaboration, we aim to expand even further into the international events market."
"Technology facilitates communication and connectivity in powerful ways," said Dan Wempa, NYSCI’s Vice President of External Affairs. "This collaboration between NYSCI and Science Museum will give our clients greater flexibility and enable both of our venues to attract an even broader array of meetings and events."
The Science Museum encompasses 10 conference and event spaces, from the 400-seat IMAX cinema to the 700 square-metre blank-canvas space Level 1, accommodating up to 750 guests. The venue has recently attracted a number of high profile clients including EE, Acer, Coca-Cola and WWF.
The New York Hall of Science is New York City's science and technology center, and is the home of 450 interactive exhibits. The venue offers six spaces available for corporate and private events, accommodating 15 to 500 guests.
The venue’s clients include American Cancer Society, MTV, Pfizer, Pepsi-Cola, and Volvo.
