How are meals managed?
We work with our catering partners and choose the menus for each day. To follow COVID-19 protocols and make sure we're staying safe, boxed meals will be served in our community lounge to all guests in the space that day, but we will make sure to have everything out and ready at the time that best fits your agenda. Let us know if anyone in your group has a food allergy and we'll make sure to accommodate them.
What about COVID-19?
We take COVID seriously and go above and beyond to mitigate any potential COVID risks. We follow all of metro's guidelines for gatherings, check temperatures at the door, provide masks, and encourage social distancing. We also carry out a deep clean of our facilities before and after meetings.

Can I include virtual attendees with Zoom?
Yes! We have the capability to include your attendees in person and via Zoom.
What about Zoom breakout rooms?
We also have the ability to facilitate virtual breakout rooms via Zoom if your event requires this type of interaction.
