Convene is Ready to Reopen to Members

Three months after the coronavirus forced New York-based Convene to close its flexible offices and meeting venues, it is now looking to revive its workplace solutions business.

Convene co-founder and CEO Ryan Simonetti explained how they temporarily closed all locations in March and were forced to lay off and furlough more than 400 employees to cut costs. They also renegotiated leases and applied for, and received, a loan from the Paycheck Protection Program.

Having overhauled its spaces and updated its operating standards to ensure the health and wellbeing of employees, members and guests, Convene is now ready for a phased reopening of its offices. Its meetings and events locations will reopen at a later date.

First, Convene plans to reopen three locations in Chicago and two in Washington, D.C., followed by three locations in New York at 101 Greenwich St., 530 Fifth Ave. and One Liberty Plaza.

“This is really exciting for us and we look forward to welcoming our workplace customers back,” Simonetti said.
