Via trainings like Event Leadership Institute’s Pandemic On-Site Protocol course, we have the know-how to handle all pandemic risks and host your events safely.
To stop spread, face masks are required in all indoor spaces—unless vaccinated or tested negative for COVID (past 48 hours). If you or your guests don’t have a mask, we’ll provide one for you.
If food or drinks are served or consumed indoors, all participants, guests, and service providers must verify they’re fully vaccinated—mandated by the City of Berkeley.
If you don’t have refreshments, we strongly recommend you require proof of full vaccination and/or negative COVID-19 tests of participants, guests, and service providers.
Our Events Protection Plan keeps everyone safe, and we’re one of the healthiest buildings in the Bay—with 100% fresh air ventilation!
We host low-impact, environmentally conscious events in stylish spaces—perfect for a wide range of private and public events—including celebrations, conferences, receptions, and meetings.
