Teresa Lisson, Renaissance’s Event Hall partner, rented the venue more than three years ago.
“Ever since, I focus on private events only,” Lisson said. “We are specialists in weddings, corporate affairs and some concerts.”
Conveniently located near all five boroughs, Renaissance Event Hall attracts a diverse group of people.
“The European charm, our young motivated team, our on-premises catering, moderate prices, and layout of the venue fascinate film crews and urge networks to shoot with well-known actors here,” said Lisson.
Lisson’s everyday job consists of a variety of things. “I ensure that all the Event Planners , Sales Managers as well as Catering Crew are on the same page i overlook that all the logistics for that upcoming weeks are falling into place in order to ensure the one of a kind days stays a memorable one. Additionally there is always a fair amount of time spent to keep the venue in good shape not only cosmetically corrections are necessary almost after each event but also the equipment in the back of the house keep on being a constant challenge.We invest quiet offten time to attend shows and other business-related events to always be up to date with the latest trends,” she said.There are alwayas new rentals such as special décor furniture and special light equipment for a unique transformation of the room.
The Renaissance recently purchased the building next door in order to expand. The construction is set to start by the end of this year. It will allow for a bigger bridal suite, backyard for ceremonies and outdoor affairs.
“That allows us to improve the kitchen in order to speed up the serving process,” said Lisson. “We will also add more seating space that will allow us to add 150 guests, which makes a total of 450 guests. Finally we will be able to create customize new theme buffets. Server training will be less complicated since the venue will finally have more space to set up & break down.”
