Adjacent to Madison Square Garden and Penn Station, the Pavilion is perfectly situated for events looking for an expansive locale with access to high foot traffic and proximity to area attractions, hotels and transportation.

The Pavilion is easily accessible from any point in the city. It offers three entrances, one on Seventh Avenue between 32nd and 33rd Streets, a direct entrance from the Hotel Pennsylvania lobby (for hotel-related events) and a dedicated freight entrance on 32nd Street

The first floor features over 5,700 SF primed for a storefront, event activation, or trade show registration. Double escalators move guests to the second floor where the main space offers 35,000 SF. The second level's open floor plan allows for flexible design and access to electricity is readily available in the floor ports, columns, overhead, and walls. 

As for extending event exposure beyond the venue's walls, branding opportunities exist on the multiple second floor windows facing Seventh Avenue and Madison Square Garden for an additional fee.

Michaelangelo L’Acqua is an internationally acclaimed music-branding specialist. His commitment to creating ground breaking, innovative solutions for his clients marks a successful career that is highlighted by unprecedented achievements in the realm of music for luxury brands.

L’Acqua’s career began in 1999 when Tom Ford called on his talents to musically translate his design visions for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent to the runways of Milan & Paris. That same year L’Acqua’s unique music abilities led to the creation of his boutique music branding agency, Onda, which specialized in original scores for runway shows, major recording label productions and bespoke music compositions for TV & film. 

Between 1999-2006, L’Acqua became one of the most sought after runway sound designers working with renowned fashion houses presenting their collections in Paris, Milan, Berlin and New York. Additionally Onda became an award winning TV music composition house working with the likes of BBDO, Y&R, Sacchi & Sacchi and Ogilvy & Mather as well as producing major label records for Sony & Universal

In 2006, Onda was dismantled and L’Acqua was requested by Natalie Cole to executive produce her father’s remix project, “Nat King Cole, Re:Generations” released on EMI Records. Re:Generations featured will.I.am, Cee Lo Green, Nas, The Roots, Damian & Stephen Marley, TV On The Radio among several others amazing artists.

Over those six years L’Acqua fabricated the many musical touch points that has allowed W’s passion for music to become the most poignant way in which the brand inspires and engages it’s core audience. In 2015 L’Acqua left W Hotels to launch his music brand agency White Label Music.
