The Downtown Conference Center offers a simplified method of pricing that combines all elements of your day meeting into one, all-inclusive price per person, including service charges. It is a cost-efficient way to budget and plan Day Meetings. Our Day Meeting Package (DMP) offers all the components for an effective meeting in one simple pricing structure.


When planning events at our executive meeting center, the DMP provides meeting planners with a one-stop shopping solution. This New York meeting package liberates you from an endless meeting planning checklist and lets you focus time and energy on what matters most - planning a successful meeting for your group.

At the Downtown Conference Center we offer meeting packages for both full day meetings and half day meetings.
