Venues in Action


Kate Spade

Center548 was home to Kate Spade’s fashion presentation where the space allowed the designer to not only showcase her clothes, but also create a garden party. Guests enjoyed a glass of champagne compliments of Sonnier & Castle as they strolled through the “great outdoors” inside one of the city’s largest, most flexible venues.


  • Lighting
  • On-site Management

Skullcandy was looking for a space that would allow them to display their new headphones in a way that made attendees feel as if they were walking through an art gallery. Location05 fit the bill with its white walls and rigging points that allowed AES NYC preferred vendor, Eclipse, to set up temporary walls that allowed guests to interact with the star of the show: Skullcandy headphones.

The day concluded with a cocktail reception that featured a DJ, rentals from AES NYC preferred vendor Broadway Rentals, and catering by Mint.

Private Event

  • Consulting
  • Lighting
  • On-site Management

Location05 fit the bill for this couple as the space’s multiple studios allowed them to have a formal ceremony in one space then move to three studios that are connected by air walls for dinner, dancing, and general celebration. Between the ceremony and dinner, the couple made great use of the venue’s wraparound bar as it served as the focal point of the cocktail hour. 

Independent Art Fair

  • Custom Build-Outs
  • Lighting

Center548 has been the home of the Independent Art Fair since its inception in 2010. Center548 is the perfect home for this show as its 30,000 square-feet of light, white space allow guests to enjoy the installations without feeling like they are standing on a NYC subway platform at rush hour. The venue’s location in the heart of the Chelsea Arts District is also fitting as Center548 is steps from some the premier art galleries in the world.


  • AV
  • Catering

BMW found the perfect home to introduce its latest model to the press in our exclusive venue, Center548. The venue’s enormous freight elevator made load-in of the cars easy and one of the venue’s 9,000 square-foot floors allowed BMW to present the cars to attendees from the stage built for the event with lighting provided by AES NYC preferred vendor, Taj. Center548’s rooftop gave attendees a chance to get a fresh air and interact with the BMW as they enjoyed catering by FCI.
