So how do you know if your selection from the wide range of meeting rooms available is the best for your purpose? Here are some pointers that will help you.
Meeting Room Design Goals The first thing to consider is the purpose of selecting the meeting room.These may include: Fostering a sense of closeness: Participants should feel physically and mentally “close”; with other participants as well as with meeting leaders in conference rooms. The design of the meeting rooms should meet the need for a sense of identity with the group gathered at the business meeting location.
Creating a sense of space: Even if proximity is good, you shouldn’t feel cramped. There must be enough space for participants to leave the meeting room without disturbing others. When sitting, neither persons nor their chairs may touch persons or furniture next to, in front of or behind. Encourage Full Participation: The conference room should be designed so that each person can easily see everyone, hear everyone’s comments, and see all the images presented without straining their bodies.
