EVENTS: Yes, we recommend a minimum of two hours rentals for your event and require a non-refundable two-hour date-hold deposit to reserve your date(s) and time(s).

How far in advance do I need to book a meeting room or event space?

To play it safe and make sure your ideal space is available, book your meeting room or event space in advance.

Want to do a spontaneous meeting? You can quickly check on availability by looking and also booking on our booking calendar. If it’s a short notice need, please also talk to one of the HAYVN staff who can help you — if there’s a space available, it’s yours!

Meeting rooms include: Sheffield Conference Room, Bell Island Living Room, Huddle/Podcast Room, and Mini Meeting Room.

EVENT DEPOSIT: Renter shall submit to HAYVN a date-hold deposit equal to 2 rental hours to reserve your date(s) and time(s). Deposits are non-refundable.

The balance of the rental fee is due seven (7) days prior to your event.

EVENT PAYMENTS: Payments may be made to HAYVN in cash, by check, or via credit cards (Visa/MasterCard). Miscellaneous or additional costs, such as for staffing, bar, catering, rentals, etc., are due two (2) days prior to your event. No terms are implied or granted and no event preparation work, on the part of HAYVN or Renter, shall commence until full payment is received.

EVENT CANCELLATION: Cancellation of an event at any time after an Agreement is executed and 7 days prior to the event date shall result in forfeiture of the Renter’s date-hold deposit. In the event that Renter cancels its event less than seven (7) days before the event date, Renter forfeits the entire rental fee, including the deposit and the balance paid as well as any other costs incurred on Renter’s behalf, such as reserved food and beverage catering, equipment rentals or purchases. The rental fee, less the date-hold deposit, will be returned to Renter only if Renter cancels the scheduled event at least seven (7) days in advance of the event date.
