The History of
PMHUB

The idea to open a new event space in Kyiv came up in February 2019. The project manager Daria Syoma, together with her team, discussed several concepts and settled on creating a platform for creative people. Thus, PMHUB — an event space with a focus on business, tech, gaming & entertainment — was born.

The team aimed to bring together people who would be creative, decisive, and dedicated to what they do. In other words, the leaders of today and the creators of the future.

There is a sculpture of the Runner in the center of the hub, Egregor. It doesn`t only embodies the best qualities of our heroes, but became the soul of PMHUB. On the one hand, Egregor is our totem, on the other, a mentor that is always there and helps the speaker to collect their thoughts before going out to face their audience.

PMHUB was created around the collective image of a human being who is strong in mind and heart. Egregor has always been at the center of this idea as the source of our inspiration. He became our permanent guest, and the shades of his life are reflected in many interior elements and zones of our event space.

The team started to search for location. The goal was to find a place in the center of Kyiv with a convenient location, which would enable us to hold events of various formats. As a result, a building on Ioanna Pavla II St. in Pechersk was chosen. This is a venue with a sizable area (1500 m2), as well as functional terraces and a roof, opening a breathtaking view of Kyiv’s skylines.

Daria Syoma and Olya Safina, the venue’s art director, presented the PMHUB project at the event forum in Lviv, and in March, the venue was ready for an official launch. However, the all-national quarantine lockdown happened at about that time, and the team had to adapt quickly to the new reality. The team decided to start PMHUB’s work with online events because everyone was staying at home and looking for fresh online content to watch.

PMHUB opened its doors to off-line events - of course, complying with all applicable quarantine regulations. In the future, the team plans to increase the number of offline events (needless to say, much will depend on how the pandemic progresses) and to continue developing new formats for online events.
