The Greenberg Conference Center (GCC) is set apart from other venues by delivering nearly 10,000 square feet of unique, dynamic, modern spaces that can host a variety of multidimensional conferences. Through its association with Yale University, the GCC has had the honor of hosting some of the most influential people in the world, such as; Secretary of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon, Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, and Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Its amphitheater has held international conferences, facilitated executive leadership forums, and has established itself as a prestigious, exclusive, and intimate facility, specializing in sophisticated accommodations.Although an intimate venue, the GCC is outfitted with the latest in AV technology, including interpretation equipment that can be accessed from three separate locations throughout the facility. Furthermore, the Greenberg Conference Center’s design, construction, and operations conform to environmental benchmarks set by the United States Green Building Council. This accomplishment makes the Greenberg Conference Center one of the most sustainable, and environmentally friendly buildings on Yale’s campus.
Located steps away from New Haven's vibrant downtown, the Greenberg Conference Center is the perfect place for your next event. The building is designed to accommodate a wide range of activities, from conferences and corporate retreats to receptions and dinners.
The structure, designed by the firm of Robert A. M. Stern, former Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, opened in the summer of 2009. As a “green” building, the Center’s design, construction, and operations conform to benchmarks set by the U.S. Green Building Council and is LEED Gold certified. The Center has been certified as an “E-Level” Green Workplace through the Yale Office of Sustainability since April 2011.
The Greenberg Conference Center is supported by Yale Conference & Events, which is a one stop shop. Each program, conference, and event is assigned a YC&E Program Director, giving you access to our services and an assortment of other University resources through a single point-of-contact.While you focus on developing your vision, we’ll work behind the scenes to register participants, reserve venues, arrange travel, and coordinate services with other resource providers to create an experience for you and your participants that is both enriching and stress-free. At the conclusion of your event, your Program Director will reconcile all income and expenses on a single invoice.
