Corporate Events

We provide the space and environment for your organization to hone its strategy. Whether a board or leadership retreat, networking event, appreciation event for clients or employees, our events heighten connections and collaboration.



We’re also happy to consult. Perhaps you need help organizing and prepping speakers, managing your budget, marketing or otherwise communicating your event, or designing a presentation. Enlist us on an as-needed basis to ease event planning and ensure that your vision comes to fruition. Additionally, Avenue 22 Events can make money for your organization by securing sponsors and coordinating ticket sales – or consulting with you to make sure you optimize those activities. Our events are often revenue drivers and a host organization’s primary source of yearly income.
