Modular event spaces and an experienced event management team
The event spaces at Maison MINATEC are modern and bathed in natural light. And, because the spaces are highly modular, they can be set up to meet a wide variety of needs. All event spaces offer the latest multimedia equipment—PCs, sound and video projection equipment, and network and Wi-Fi connections—to ensure that your event goes off without a hitch.
The Maison MINATEC event management team works closely with event organizers, and can provide tried and tested vendors from caterers and hosts/hostesses and ushers to logistics and security service providers.
Maison MINATEC event services are delivered à la carte. The event management team can assist you in assessing the needs of your event, and can also bring you turnkey cocktail receptions and galas. The range of available services also includes facility management, requesting quotes from vendors, and designing and setting up additional event spaces like tents.
