To meet needs during the pandemic, CitySpace now offers virtual event production services to corporate and non-profit organizations. Packages are offered for a variety of events including galas, fundraisers, meetings, retreats and symposiums.

Testimonials

"The WBUR CitySpace team executed a flawless virtual event to celebrate our 30th anniversary. They seamlessly mixed live and pre-recorded videos, designed a gorgeous custom event website, offered crucial technical support for our guests, and provided a welcoming presence as attendees arrived and moved to their breakout rooms. We received terrific feedback from our guests and exceeded our fundraising goal."

-Daniel Pritchard, Director of Strategic Communications at Essential Partners

"Like many nonprofits, we knew we had to pivot virtually for our annual Women at the Center event — and had no idea how to translate in-person success to an online event. Turning to WBUR’s CitySpace Productions put us in the good hands from start to finish. The team was incredibly supportive, laying out best practices and producing a seamless program. We received an avalanche of compliments and exceeded our fundraising goal."

-Nancy Vineberg, Chief Development Officer at The Brookline Center for Community Mental Health

"We sent the WBUR CitySpace Production team recordings and logos and title cards and had no idea how it would all come together.  The end product was seamless and beautiful.  Present and past Board members commented not only on how professional the event looked, but the warm and fuzzy feeling they got watching the mission of Boston Cares come to life.  We raised more money than we have in the past, and it’s wonderful to have a finished product which we can use again and again."

-Sara Hamilton, Executive Director at Boston Cares
