Western New York’s Training and Ideation Workspace.


Hey. Thanks for stopping by. We just opened our doors in a historic three-building complex on the banks of the Erie Canal in the heart of Niagara County, New York. A little about us – we’re a dynamic training and problem-solving workspace where companies from all over the world create engagement for their employees, improve their processes and teamwork, and develop solutions for a wide range of internal challenges.

Born out of a creative problem session between locally renowned coaching experts and the staff of J. Fitzgerald Group (JFG), an integrated marketing communications and advertising agency, we’ve designed The Space Between as a place to retool your thinking; to breathe new life into your company, and to unlock your creative potential.

Here, you and company can build a better team, develop marketing plans, name products, brainstorm ideas, learn how to run more effective meetings, solve problems creatively, and so much more. Or, you can use our unique spaces for your next board meeting or offsite team building session.

“In operating an advertising agency at the same site for 16 years, the one thing we’ve always heard from clients is that they needed a place to help solve internal company issues to improve their teams and their marketing efforts,” said Jack Martin, President of JFG and Partner in The Space Between.  “We’ve conducted focus groups, brainstorming sessions and company meetings around the world via the agency, but now we’re giving companies everywhere a chance to bring their teams to our space for intensive workshops so they can better attack and solve issues.”


Some of the services offered here include:

  • Guided Brainstorming Sessions
  • Creative Problem Solving
  • Business and Product Naming Sessions
  • Team Building
  • Strategic Planning Assistance
  • Focus Groups
  • Marketing Strategy Development
  • Meeting Space Rental

We’ve teamed up with creative problem-solving professionals, business and life coaches, team building experts and more to help guide our sessions. In addition, JFG boasts professionals with experience leading marketing planning sessions, search engine optimization (SEO), public relations, brainstorming, focus group facilitation and more – so you can get the absolute most out of your visit to The Space Between.

The only facility of its kind in Western New York, we have two large meeting rooms that can accommodate 35 people each. Your company can then add-on up to six additional spaces – including boardrooms, a game room, an in-house pub, and a deck and patio overlooking the 200-year-old Erie Canal. In addition to the learning sessions, we offer complete after-hours packages – so your team can visit Niagara Falls, take boat tours, wine tours, complete ropes courses, soar through the air at the new Niagara Zipper zip line, and much more.

“We know that the secret to a great work session is to also build in some downtime and fun – and we want to encourage companies to explore the beauty of Western New York and Niagara County,” says Martin. “Everyone has heard of nearby Niagara Falls, but there’s so much more to explore throughout the region. When a company books a session and an add-on retreat package, they will come away with a fresh perspective that will help them grow as a team and have great tools to improve productivity and problem-solving.”


We’re located at 12-16 West Main Street in Lockport, N.Y. It’s less than 20 miles from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport and Niagara Falls, N.Y., less than 60 miles from Rochester, N.Y., and roughly 100 miles from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
