AskI'm looking for a presentation venue in Silicon Valley that can hold 55 – 60 people. An ideal venue would be a college classroom with A/V.
DetailsFor nearly four years, I have been giving my speaking engagements in Silicon Valley. My talk focuses on Apple's design and marketing philosophy and why that makes Apple different.
The venue I've used for my presentation is no longer available. I found a similarly priced venue, but it only holds about 40 people. So, now, I need a new space which could be any professional location such as a large conference room, classroom, auditorium, etc. Do you know of a space that's available which isn't publicly advertised?
Requirements1. Seat 55 – 60 people in a classroom setup with a screen and laptop projector.
|This great venue, that I used for years, is no longer available|
2. Located within 15 – 20 minutes of Cupertino for our visit and warm welcome at Apple Park.

3. Competitively priced with my previous venue ($200 – $250 per 1/2 day).
|I had a great time presenting to billionaire Lu Junqing|
and his philanthropic daughter, Jennifer.
Since I'm not a billionaire, I need an inexpensive venue.
CaveatOver the years, I have looked at many venues near Cupertino, so I'm aware of hotel ballrooms and salons, but their costs can easily be 3x – 5x what I'm currently paying after adding in service fees, tourism and city taxes, A/V equipment rental, setup costs, etc. So, please let me know if you're aware of any large space that typically remains unused since that might be a good fit.
What if I can't find a Silicon Valley venue that meets my requirements? Well, then, it's on to Plan B, which isn't all that bad... a full-time job in tech, ideally located in San Diego.
