More than helpful
We have not had out wedding yet but The Exchange has been more than helpful with helping us make important decisions regarding our wedding and dinner rehearsal. We had to change our date early on and they were very accommodating.Sent on 01/05/2020

True Hidden Gem!
My husband and I wanted a non-traditional wedding and a venue that was different. Through a work cocktail hour (outside on the harbor overlooking the airport and city), I found The Exchange and fell in love immediately with the stunning harbor views, floor to ceiling glass windows, and the 3 story high ceiling. When we got engaged, we toured dozens of venues and none of them stood up to my vision. We toured The Exchange and Ryan was as memorized as I was. From the moment you tour the venue, you are provided an Event Coordinator who then works with you throughout the planning process and is there during the wedding to make sure everything is perfect. We were so lucky to have Alanna assigned to our meeting. She went above and beyond with every aspect of our day, she had excellent ideas to help craft a wedding that was unique to Ryan and I. Alanna added to our vision and was encouraging when we had certain requests or when I changed my mind 100 times. She truly loves what she does and I would highly recommend working with her!!
During our tasting, Alanna made recommendations to enhance our tasting menu and worked with us to change the sauces on some of the meats and added that level of detail that sold us and our parents. We knew our guests would be happy, but boy was I wrong, the food surpassed all our of expectations!! Alanna added a Brussel Sprout salad to the tasting (neither of us like brussels), it turned out to be the best salad we have ever had and we are now obsessed with brussels. It was a unanimous decision and the salad was the first item added to our menu. The food catered by East Meets West is DELICIOUS!!! Our guests keep saying that it was the best wedding food they had. Everything came out perfectly and each steak was cooked to perfection with a nice medium rare/medium center (not well done like in most weddings). East Meets West is creative and spends a lot of attention to the tiniest details on the plate. We loved being able to work with Alanna to craft a unique menu including fun hor d'overs and desserts. There are no shortage of options! During the wedding Alanna made sure that two staff followed us during cocktail hour to make sure Ryan and I had plenty of food to eat.
Not only is The Exchange stunning and the food some of the best we have had, the staff made our experience unforgettable! We highly recommend having your wedding here! True Hidden Gem that won't stay hidden for long!!

The views will catch your eye, but the staff will make you stay!
My husband and I cannot recommend the Exchange Conference Center to enough people. We got married in August. We were looking for a space that would accommodate our 200-person guest list and be unique. We found all of this at the Exchange!Sent on 10/02/2019
We had our ceremony and dancing inside and the cocktail hour and dinner outside. The dinner was under a tent, which was beautiful along the waterfront.
While the venue and views are absolutely gorgeous, the staff is what made our day flawless and allowed us to enjoy every part. I honestly made my venue choice on Lauren’s prompt response time to my first list of questions and her quick proposal. Lauren was fabulous to work with. She answered all my questions. She assisted with our tasting and picking out of linens. She held meetings with us when necessary and when we requested. Lauren communicated with all of our vendors to come up with a comprehensive timeline, which all my vendors complimented. She made me feel like I was the only bride she had in 2019! The day of Lauren, Andrea and the rest of the staff made sure we were taken care of- if there were any problems I had no idea.
East Meets West made choosing the food a challenge with all their wonderful options. The food was amazing. I am still dreaming about the mini fish tacos! I was amazed at the quality and presentation that went into every dish. We also had many food allergies and restrictions that were accommodated.
All in all, we had a great experience and we would do it all over again at the Exchange!

We absolutely love performing at TECC. It has stunning views of Boston Harbor and truly captures the energy of Boston's Seaport district. Whether you are enjoying drinks and apps outside, watching the boats go by, or dancing the night away in the gorgeous ballroom, you can't go wrong. East Meets West Catering takes incredible care of their guests and we're honored to be industry partners with them. It's a seamless reception from start to finish thanks to EMW's expertise and hospitality. Another added bonus is that parking is a breeze and you're in the heart of Boston. Such a unique venue that always delivers!
