Looking for presentation space

747 Madison community office conferenceTechyDad emails:

I was wondering if you or your readers could help me. I've been working on a freelance project that is winding to a close. The final piece is a presentation that I need to give showing how to use the system I built for them. My problem is, I don't know where to give it. I can't do it at my office since this is a side project and doing it at my home seems too unprofessional. This would only be three or four people involved in this so I wouldn't need much space. I would, however, need Internet access.

We've touched on the the lack of co-working space in the Capital Region before. Any businesses with conference room space that TD that might rent for a few hours? (If you don't feel comfortable posting in the comments, email us and we'll connect you.)

Got a suggestion for TechyDad? Please share!

Try your local library.

Public libraries often have meeting space and wireless internet access.

The Troy Record has a community meeting space that seems like it would meet your needs. They've got internet access, tables & chairs, and a projector screen and allow community groups and others to use the space. Email Tom Caprood, tcaprood@troyrecord.com, or Lisa Lewis, llewis@journalregister.com, for more info.

We recently finished our virtual office. Upstairs at 255 Orange Street in Albany, we have a beautiful presentation space. I don't know when your presentation is scheduled or even if there is a deadline, but we are working on the installation of wireless internet for that space. If you are interested please give me a call at 518 427-7804, maybe we can provide the solution you are looking for.

The Mocha Blend Cafe has a shared space that you can rent by the hour...and their coffee has really improved over the past year.

Professor Java's used to have a side room your could use...

Give us a call. We have a virtual office - an office that you can rent by the hour! There are benefits with an office and meeting room space in a building with cample parking and energy efficient features. We are reachable at 518-427-7804. Tonya at our office will answer your questions.

I was going to suggest one of the Albany Public Library branches too, but they have a few stipulations that would probably not be ideal. It's a bit buried but you can find the info at the APL website

74 State Street also rents meeting rooms.

The new McDonald's in Saratoga!

Any local hotel would have a meeting space available for rent, usually about 150-200 for the day, at least thats the going rate at the Marriott Courtyards... you can bargain if you're only using it for a few hours. They also have projection screens, projectors, internet, etc. you can rent.

I just saw an ad for Porches at MASS Moca that says they have meeting spaces. (May be too far away but still kinda sweet.)

call me if you are interested in using one of the small conference spaces at the soon to be coworking space in Albany- it's equipped with a Steelcase media:scape which is great for a presentation to a group that size. 518-281-0218
