HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN EVENT?
If you're thinking about hosting an event at CIC, please fill out our handy Event Request Form. One of our staff will reach out to you to let you know what spaces are available and to help work out the details.
WHO CAN CATER MY EVENT?
Any external caterer can provide food for your event. If you are just having the food delivered, no additional steps are required. If the caterer is staying on site to serve the food, you will need to provide a Certificate of Insurance (COI) for your caterer.
If you’d like a list of caterers that event hosts have enjoyed using in the past, just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DO I NEED A CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE?
As a CIC client, you already have a certificate of insurance on file with us. But if you’re bringing in an external service (e.g. a catering company, band, circus clowns), we’ll need to supply our building manager with a COI for them as well. When you fill out the event request form, one of our staff will help you through that process.
Can I serve alcohol at my event?
If you would like to serve alcohol, you'll need to use an insured caterer with a certified bartender, and CIC will need a copy of the COI for liquor liability. If you have any questions about this process, please email email@example.com.
ARE THERE COSTS FOR HOSTING AN EVENT?
As clients, there are no space fees required for hosting events at CIC. However, we do provide additional services at cost, if required (e.g. after hours CIC representatives, cleaning fees, assisted setup, etc).
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN COME TO MY EVENT?
You are always welcome to host meetings and gatherings in our many conference rooms, which range in capacity from 4 to 18 (exact capacities can be found at cic.roomzilla.net). The capacities and current availability for our larger event spaces can be found at cic.us/benefits/events/eventspaces.
CAN I HAVE EVENTS ON NIGHTS OR WEEKENDS?
Yes, provided that the space is available and someone familiar with the facility is on site throughout the duration of the event. Additional cleaning/staffing costs may be incurred.
HOW DO I FIND OUT ABOUT EVENTS GOING ON AT CIC?
We have a ton of public events, where you can meet others solving specific types of problems. Check out the public events calendar here.
