The three step guide to booking meeting rooms in London.
1 - Think location, location, location! Think carefully about who is attending your meeting and where they are coming from. Considering the duration of their journey more carefully over pure distance. We've got meeting rooms for hire right across the country to minimize travel time for your event attendees. Does your meeting need to be held in Central London? You'll probably find better value outside London zones 1 & 2. This means lower venue hire rates, lower accommodation costs, cheaper transport links, and value for money on food and drinks.
2 - Select the right lighting. While we all love bright and airy spaces, a recent study actually showed that you should try turning the lights down when attempting to get creative. According to findings published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, darkened lighting supposedly ‘elicits a feeling of freedom, self-determination, and reduced inhibition.' But make sure natural lighting is available too! Research shows that low exposure to natural light is a mood killer longer term.
3 - Check the technology. Has your meeting room got what it takes? Easily accessible wifi, video conferencing, a screen of the right size with the right connectors for sound as well as visuals. Be sure to check with your venue host when enquiring. And seriously, don't forget to double and triple check that the venue has the right cables to plug in your gadgets. Don't be scared to ask what may seem like daft questions of the venue host. Having the right technology could really make or break your meeting.
