The big loft room is rented weekday evenings and weekends for meetings, workshops and events of up to 125 people, for private and public rentals. And we will likely be expanding to an additional second location, while keeping this current location.
Diverse events have included: Sarah Horowitz of Freelancers Union, Portland Development Corporation, various conferences such as CITCON and ZeroMQ, World Domination Summit, various Meetup groups, Gaming for Social Good, Random Hacks of Kindness, and many more.
The room has 4 standard configurations for events (classroom style, auditorium style, group style, and party mingling style), as shown below.
Classroom style. Desks and chairs in rows facing the projector and screen. “Hackathon style” with clusters of tables and people working in chairs around each table is similar:
Auditorium style. People seated in chairs facing forward to a speaker with projector, screen, whiteboard.
Group style. People seated around a large table, with a table off to the side for food.
Party mingling style. Open floorplan with clusters of tables against the walls, and chairs or no chairs, and sofas:
