What Your Venue Preference Says About You
Each venue tells a different story. From classic to rustic, wide open, to filled with interesting pieces -- every venue is unique in its own way and so are the people that are drawn towards it. What might be interesting to you, might be a huge turn off to another. We teamed up with Vivid Seats, the largest online ticket marketplace where fans can buy and sell tickets to concerts, sports, and theatre events nationwide, to dive into the different types of events held at our venues. Using their data, we came up with a few different ‘personas’ that fit the bill for each event space based on the types of ticketed events sold there and the venue’s rental information. Any of the venues are available for rental on EVENTup, just click through to see more information!
MetLife Stadium: The High Roller
MetLife Stadium is most known as the spot as home to both the New York Giants and New York Jets. However, it doubles as an event space for many different ticketed events. The venue is primarily known football but according to Vivid Seats, 25% of Metlife Stadium’s events include musical events/concerts… have you heard of Beyonc√©? She’s the type of big wig that performs at this spot.
If you choose to have an event at Metlife Stadium you’re most likely either a die hard fan for one of the teams or hosting an amazingly unique corporate event. Not only can you have your event on the field itself, but there are multiple options ranging from an intimate dark wooded club lounge to a bustling and colorful field-side club. Greats like Bruce Springsteen, Eli Manning, and Beyonc√© have set foot in the stadium, so no matter what, hosting an event here is sure to leave your guests with their jaws on the floor.
Whether you’re catching a Giants/Jets game, attending a concert, or throwing a corporate event at Metlife Stadium, it’s going to be a big deal, you high roller, you.
SubCulture: The Non-Traditionalist
Like the name suggests, this is an unexpected location for an event. This spot is great for someone who wants to both try something out of the ordinary but also make a big impression. Vivid Seats reported this venue almost exclusively plays home to ticketed events for rock concerts or comedy shows. This doesn’t come to much as a surprise as the space has such a gritty and eclectic feel that speaks for itself.
SubCulture is an urban oasis hidden beneath the streets of New York. This venue is made for smaller private events, business meetings, and photo/film shoots. If you are bored of the traditional board room or clean white event space for your corporate event or looking for a venue with just the right amount of character for your best friends’ surprise 30th birthday party -- this is the spot for The Non-Traditionalist in you.
The NOVO - AEG Live: The Young Innovator
The NOVO is a unique and energetic space with turnkey planning capabilities. It is a one-stop-shop and perfect for receptions, theater performance, corporate meetings, galas, award shows, and the list goes on and on.

That’s right, when we checked in with Vivid Seats, we learned that the most often occurring events at The NOVO are hip hop Concerts. This venue screams young and innovative, and we love that about it. Don’t let us keep going on and on, let the photos speak for themselves.
