Tour the Hub
"It was such a pleasure to finally get together for a responsible and COVID-compliant in-person meeting, and it was no surprise that the MassBio fully delivered on providing a safe and accommodating space for us to reconnect as colleagues. If you’ve attended any of MassBio’s virtual events you certainly know how impressive their production quality is; as a Hub user we were able to conduct our hybrid event using their top-notch audio and video equipment, duplicating the seamless and enjoyable experience for our virtual attendees. Their individualized catering experience was not only COVID-19 conscious but inclusive of dietary restrictions as well. Between the professionally conducted pre-screening process and clear attention to sanitization, our group felt quite confident that the event was indeed held in a safe manner. We have already scheduled a return visit for a meeting next month."

“The Boston Biotechnology Summit is an annual, international event established in 2017. Our focus this year was Covid-19 and our challenge was to hold the summit virtually. The MassBio Conference Services and Midnight Brunch teams were charged with setting up a virtual 2hr event. This required several coordination meetings and a full rehearsal. We found that both teams were consistently responsive to our numerous questions and requests, and made every effort to ensure we were on track. The outcome was an excellent event with attendees registered from throughout the world. The Boston Biotechnology Summit completely met its goals and the feedback was outstanding. We would like to thank MassBioHub Services (led by Suzanne Curran) and Midnight Brunch (led by Mike Sills) for this collaboration; we will certainly refer them to colleagues and be pleased to work with them in the future”

“MassBio’s policies and procedures for Covid-19 were well thought through, well prepared and executed, and very well done. The easy-to-use on-line health questionnaire, traffic flow procedures, conference room set-up, availability of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies and daily safety briefing were instrumental to our team feeling comfortable and safe during the meeting sessions.”

“The site’s space accommodations, A/V amenities, and affordability combined with MassBio’s Covid-19 policies and procedures were invaluable to enabling our meeting’s success – especially during the early stages of Massachusetts’ “Opening of the Economy Phase 3.” The team was instrumental in helping us determine a meeting experience for our in-person and virtual attendees that enabled a social interaction and content sharing solution that leveraged the conference center’s A/V with outside collaboration technology. The team also was attentive to the details of the room set-up; catering coordination and room transitions that minimized disruptions to our meeting proceedings."
