Both venues support a range of technical solutions, facilitating outside broadcasts for international events, such as video/music streaming and wi-fi infrastructure for multiple-platform users, allowing events to be held simultaneously at both venues, connected via sound and video link.

The venues are aiming to acquire a greater number of international ceremonies, large-scale conferences and product launches on a bespoke basis, and the initiative will be cross promoted to the venues’ shared client base within the scientific, pharmaceutical and technology sectors.

Alicia Earls, communications manager for corporate events at the Science Museum, said: "We are very excited to start working with the New York Hall of Science, and we are confident that this venture will generate many new business opportunities for both venues.

"With this collaboration, we aim to expand even further into the international events market."

Dan Wempa, NYSCI’s vice president of external affairs, added: "Technology facilitates communication and connectivity in powerful ways. This collaboration between NYSCI and the Science Museum will give our clients greater flexibility and enable both of our venues to attract an even broader array of meetings and events."

The Science Museum encompasses ten conference and event spaces including a 400-seat IMAX cinema as well as a 700 square metre blank-canvas space called Level 1, which can accomodate up to 750 guests.

The venue has recently attracted a number of high profile clients including EE, Acer, Coca-Cola and WWF.

The NYSCI is New York City's science and technology center and is home to 450 interactive exhibits. The venue offers six spaces available for corporate and private events, accommodating between 15 and 500 guests.

The venue’s clients include American Cancer Society, MTV, Pfizer, Pepsi-Cola and Volvo.
