On May 1, Boston's Copley Square Hotel opened its new meeting space, Art Square. The 1,254-square-foot space can accommodate groups up to 24 guests in a boardroom-style layuot and up to 54 guests in a classroom-style arrangement.
"Art Square [was designed] to encourage creativity and inspire groups using the space for their meetings. With windows looking out to the city, plenty of natural light, and an intimate feel, we think our guests will feel the energy of the city and enjoy the whimsical feel of our boutique property. We really wanted to create a space that helps groups think outside of the box and gets their creative energy flowing," says Stephen Cullen, Copley Square Hotel area general manager.
Unlike many event spaces, Cullen says Art Square's primary focus is on smaller meetings. Executives and small groups or departmetns need a place to bring their team to brainstorm and create, he says.
"With that in mind, Art Square is simply designed, and it's able to handle all of our guests' small-meeting needs, including technology and catering, so they can concentrate on what's really important," Cullen says.
Cullen says Art Square is the perfect spot to host a smaller offsite meeting or team event. For team-building activities, Art Square has just what you're looking for.
"We’re actually hosting a Remarkable Race Patio Hop team-building event in the space with some of our clients in a few weeks. The group will start with some ice-breaking activities and a champagne toast in Art Square," Cullen says. "Thanks to our ideal location within the city, we will be sending the participants outside to complete tasks and find clues, as well as enjoy a few cocktails and refreshments on some of our nearby favorite restaurant patios like Stephanie’s on Newbury, Porto, and The Met. The event is being facilitated by our friends at True North Team Building."
