With “best value” being very much the buzzword of the moment both in the private and public sectors, no matter what type or size of organisation you represent you’ll be keen to your cheap meeting rooms really are value rather than a waste of money.
Here are some things to check before you decide which meeting rooms for rent you go for and book :
A quick internet search for “meeting venues London” could bring you up places anywhere within a 12 mile radius so make sure you pick somewhere close to a mainline train station, after all if it’s on the Monopoly board then there is a good chance it will be easy to get to from anywhere in the country.
Just like with budget airlines you need to make sure that you are getting what you need and that there will be no unpleasant surprises when it comes to the bottom line. Things you should insist are included in the room hire rates are : teas, coffees, wireless internet access and standard meeting room hire items such as flipcharts, whiteboards and marker pens. It might seem petty but you don’t want to be forking out for things you have not budgeted for.
Ease of use
you are arranging a meeting room or training event with a definite purpose, possibly meeting clients, liaising with your team or pitching and idea so you’ll want an appropriate setting.
Hotels are not always the best place for this, after all you don’t want your guests to have to negotiate hordes of holidaymakers, pupils on school trips to London (remember them?) or large coach parties of retired folk taking it easy.
Stick to a dedicated conference centre in London for the right atmosphere, you can be sure anybody else you meet in the lobby will be there on business too rather than larking about, chatting each other up or reminiscing about the past.
