U.S. workers logged 455 million trips for business in 2015, a number expected to increase by nearly four percent in 2016. Remote work is certainly becoming the norm and not the exception. For road warriors, they may spend only 10 to 15 hours per week in their office, with the rest of their time spent traveling and meeting with prospects and customers.
So for employees who are on the road, when does the majority of office work take place? For the most part, it takes place between flights and meetings. And where does this work occur? It occurs at busy airports, noisy coffee shops, and cramped and uncomfortable hotel rooms. However, these less-than-ideal settings are often the last place you want when crafting a winning business proposal, writing and designing compelling content, or assessing and compiling recommendations for strategic clients and business proposals.
Needing a Day Office
The reality is that road warriors, and even those who travel occasionally, sometimes need a day office to prepare for a meeting or simply focus on getting some important work done between flights and meetings. In these instances, finding the right day office is crucial; one with all of the technology tools and business services you need.
Why not use a local coffee shop? While these are a great place to drink a cup of coffee and socialize with friends and colleagues, they are not a good place to get some focused work done. How about your hotel room? A great place to relax, reenergize, and get some sleep, but not a place where you can do your best work.
What you need is a professional a day office where you can focus on work, knowing you have the right technology tools at your fingertips and business services at the ready. This was a major premise behind the creation of Davinci Meeting Rooms.

Yet, Davinci Meeting Rooms are more than just day offices. With almost 40 percent of business travel for meetings and events, we also offer clients the ability to book and reserve conference room space for internal and external meetings. Indeed, sometimes face-to-face meetings are simply necessary, and business professionals agree. Ninety-five percent view in-person meetings as key to success in building long-term relationships. And for prospect or customer meetings, a recent study finds that face-to-face meetings are 85 percent more effective than virtual meetings.
Thinking about using a hotel conference room for your meeting? The cost is 50 percent higher than a meeting room for rent, not to mention that you normally don’t have all of the right technologies and business services that you need at your disposal. A local coffee shop or café are something many business professionals consider. However, for most face-to-face meetings, they are unprofessional, loud, and lack the privacy and services needed for most meetings. And for some use cases, they simply won’t work at all.
