5 Meeting Room Tips

Published on 15 Jul 2017

A meeting room should leave a positive impression on the attendees. Outlined below are 5 tips that you might like to consider for your next meeting:

1. Select the Right Room

Ideally, the room should be in a place where distractions are kept to a minimum. For example, a space near a construction site is not ideal!

2. Table Configuration

Seating arrangements are often overlooked, there are plenty to choose from. Such as the U-style allows everyone to engage with the speaker, while a classroom style can accommodate more people.

3. Lighting

Natural light is great, however make sure the windows have blinds in case the glare becomes distracting Other ways to make lighting work include, use bulbs that don’t give off too much heat and have the wall colors complement the lighting.

4. Choose the Right Screen

If a screen is the focal point for meeting, choose carefully. It should be big enough for everyone in the room to see, but small enough not to be overwhelming.

5. Provide Amenities

To make the attendees as comfortable as possible offer refreshments such a coffee, water, biscuits and the like at regular intervals.

In summary always remember that your meeting room should be a comfortable space where people can meet without unnecessary distractions and interference.
