Where you hold your meetings says a lot about your brand and business. If you are startup and have just moved into your new office suite, it’s worthwhile to spend a little on the design of your meeting room or conference space.
First and foremost pick a good location. Go for a room in your office that has a simple and straightforward layout. It’s best to have the meeting room adjacent to the reception so you can usher your guests directly to the room. Also select a spot away from the distracting noises outside.
Next, think about how many people you’d want in your room. Make sure they have enough elbow room and space to walk around. While you think the larger is better, sometimes that’s not ideal as you don’t want it to be so large that it feels empty and hollow. Invest in comfortable and ergonomic seating and a good table.
Have balanced natural light and artificial lighting. Also, put up blinds – when you need to do a presentation on-screen, the room can be easily darkened by shutting out the natural light.
Ensure there are sufficient meeting facilities like projectors and screens, phones and other essentials. Keep everything neatly stored away when not in use, so you can maintain a clean and clutter free environment.
