Meeting Room Trends to Consider

DMR_week49_2Hotels and meeting planners typically theorize on trends in order to cover the changing evolution of business in the most effective ways possible. For many businesses, customized hotel meeting packages do little to assuage the continually rising group rates. Below are just a few of the considerations that businesses should keep in mind when it comes to finding venues for their meetings.

Rising Group Costs

As demand increases, group rates will continue to advance commensurately. Of course, this will depend upon the location and market. Meeting planning professionals will still be in the driver’s seat since there are other options to hotels, such as Davinci Meeting Rooms. As a result, the more favorable rates offered by Davinci will be an excellent alternative to leverage the ability to make connections with new industries and companies.

Booking Pace

It is expected that as businesses continue to grow that the booking pace will become more encouraging with regard to meeting rooms. Depending upon the market, there is a much more positive direction anticipated for future bookings with healthy signs of interest and activity.

Wireless Amenities

One of the more appealing aspects of using meeting rooms is the accessibility to convenient wireless solutions. This makes business meetings more effective, less tedious, and far more productive. For instance, connections for laptops, whiteboards, electronic tablets, and other devices has become the preferred method of note taking and documented learning.

Smaller Meeting Venues

Since large events are so expensive to run and maintain, companies are looking for new ways to connect without breaking their banks. Today’s technologies for meetings bring a much stronger need for secure, yet advanced environments to conduct business and manage off site learning. Meeting rooms offer just the right size to accommodate various meeting sizes at more affordable rates than any hotel can offer.

Team Building

It has been assumed that in person team building would take a backseat to technology. However, it has since been discovered that hands-on activities are necessary to get an adequate return on investment from business training and meetings. Therefore, companies have re-instituted meetings in order to revive enthusiasm by inspiring camaraderie. However, today’s team building efforts involve more informal gatherings in places like meeting rooms. It has also been found that meetings away from the office in new environments can be far more effective. Less internal distraction allows for invigorating and creative brainstorming that inspires participation.
