Why you should hire a pub room for your next meeting
Here at VenueScanner, our goal is to make underutilised spaces discoverable. More and more pubs are changing the way they think about events by making sure their venues are fully equipped for business meetings. Pubs are no longer just pubs as we know them. Whilst they offer us the comfort we continue to seek from these types of establishments, they now also offer us so much more.
On a daily basis, pubs are looking to appeal to the corporate crowd. With top-notch AV equipment on offer along with a ranging size of function rooms, these glorious establishments provide the perfect environment for your meetings. Here are three reasons you should be taking advantage of the pub meeting trend:
1 - Non-corporate atmosphere. Make the most of the advantages this non-corporate meeting space offers you. Employees are more likely to speak freely and feel at ease in the pub than they are in the office, so make sure that comes out. Facilitate creative discussions and don’t hold back - here’s the place to come up with the next bright idea away from the constraints of the traditional meeting room.
Escape the world of branded offices, stationery, and water bottles and go back to what matters. You and your 'meeting companions' in a comfortable, familiar environment where you can focus on the matter at hand.
2 - Food and drink. The availability of sustenance here is a key win. In-office catering is expensive and often bland and boring. Say goodbye to the same-old stale sandwiches and hello to a whole new world of possibility. The catering offerings here are bound to be more impressive - these pubs do this every day, remember? - and a meal at the end of the meeting is an ideal way to boost concentration and reward employees for a job well done.
3 - Price. This shouldn’t be your bottom line, but it certainly is a benefit of using a non-traditional meeting space. Many pubs will be willing to offer you the space as long as you hit a minimum spend. Just order a lunch to the room after you’ve finished or get a couple of rounds in at the end of the day and you’re sorted!
