4 Things to Look For When Booking A Meeting Room

By | Business, Industry, Tips

It is all about The Room Where It Happens, just ask Alexander Hamilton. Meeting rooms are where things get done. decisions, deals, hiring, firings and more- they all happen in a meeting room. When you make these potential business-altering decisions, you need to be in an environment that amplifies your confidence and your brand rather than diminishes it.

Sugar Land is one of the fastest growing areas in the country, and it is buzzing with small business and entrepreneurial activity. Working from home is a popular and cost-efficient way to start out your company, but not always a great place to meet clients or host meetings. That is why many locations in the Sugar Land area have started offering meeting rooms for rent by the hour or the day. It gives your small business a more professional appearance at an affordable price.

I identified the 4 main qualities that you need to look for when booking a room for your next meeting:

  • Accessibility – How easy is it to book the room? Sometimes you need to book a room in a hurry on short notice. Many meeting rooms will require you to book a day or two in advance and charge cancellation fees. The best meeting rooms are ones that let you book on a first-come-first-served basis and on the same day. This will give you maximum flexibility, because we all know things rarely go according to plan when it comes to small business.
  • Appearance – Nobody wants to be in a stuffy, plain-looking room; it saps your energy and affects the image you are putting forward to your clients. Always look to find meeting rooms with windows and natural light when possible. Look for bright colors and stylish furniture that will make people feel creative and motivated.
  • Functionality – A meeting room is of no use if it cannot do what you need it to. This means having the right furniture, technology, layout, and amenities. Be sure to look for photos of the space to make sure it has the chairs, TVs, and tables to meet your needs. Giving a big presentation? Look for rooms with a large and high-quality screen. Hosting a round table discussion? Try to find spaces with customizable layouts to arrange accordingly.
  • Location – When meeting with clients, you always need to put their needs first. Do not make them have to drive across town, and don’t make them have to pay or spend time trying to find parking. Having a good variety of restaurants nearby is always a plus in case you want to transition your meeting into a lunch. Also consider the surrounding environment of the meeting space, choose something that fits the personality of who you are meeting with. Some people like busy areas with lots of activity, while others prefer something more private and quieter.
