Why rent a conference room for a day?
Why pay to rent a conference room for a day when you could just use your existing office space or even meet at a coffee shop or library? There are a few major reasons to consider one.
The first and most important reason is privacy. If you’re hosting an executive board meeting, consulting with a client, or interviewing a potential new employee, then you can’t do it in an open office. In some cases, a meeting may be so confidential that you have to host it off-site.
Renting a conference room affords you the privacy to conduct your business in a way that makes you and your clients feel comfortable.
Maybe your office is too small to have a separate conference room, or maybe you don’t have an office at all because you work from home or in a coworking space.
In fact, if your company is just starting, you may need a place to meet with clients before you’re able to invest in an office space of your own. Or, you may just need to meet clients at a more central location. Whatever the reason, renting a conference room gives you more options and flexibility in terms of space.
Sometimes you just need a change of scenery. You can even rent a conference room for a day to shoot team photos in a more professional environment.
On Peerspace, you’ll find conference rooms with classy “executive” decor and others with quirky colors and a casual vibe that will look great on your company’s Instagram feed or marketing materials.
You can also choose from various seating arrangements, from traditional boardroom-style layouts to open or closed U-shaped layouts, classroom-style layouts, and more.
Equipment is one of the best reasons to rent a conference room for a day. At a minimum, you can expect a conference room to have good lighting and comfortable furniture, but many conference rooms will also have additional amenities such as WiFi and A/V gear.
Need to present a pitch deck or give a report to shareholders? Rent a conference room with a projector. Need to record an important board meeting or chat with a remote client? Choose a conference room with videoconferencing capabilities.
No matter what kind of meeting you have in mind, a private conference room makes a great first impression. It can provide a professional atmosphere for your conference or presentation and ensure you have the gear you need.
These are just a few examples of the kinds of events that work well in conference rooms:
- Board meetings
- Video conferences
- Team building events
- Focus groups
- And more!
