Conference Rooms Too Small, the new issue facing businesses.

Conference Rooms too small photoIs Your Conference Rooms Too Small?

You may soon find the Conference Rooms you have been using are too small. I know, they tell us not to gather in large groups and that would indicate to most people that the need for larger conference rooms would diminish. It really all depends on what you consider small. If you have been meeting in a conference room designed for 10 people, you already know that it is uncomfortable to add just a few more bodies. With the need for more social space for your attendees, the small room with a conference table is virtually useless. At the same time, large hotel type conference rooms are far too large.

We haven’t even mentioned the meetings and training that have been held in the back rooms of bars and restaurants up until now. After all, who knows when bars and sit down restaurants will reopen. When they do, many of your attendees will likely feel uncomfortable meeting in public, high traffic areas such as these.

Smaller Events or Bigger Rooms

The challenge as we see it will be to find a venue that can accommodate your group in a private setting. Do you or your attendees really want to traipse through a hotel or casino, exposed to hundreds of other folks, just to get to an oversized conference room that costs a fortune? Worse yet, you go through the gauntlet of people just to discover you are meeting in a room so small you may as well take a shower in hand sanitizer after you leave. You already know you will need to limit attendees or rent a giant room. What can you do? Here are a few tips to help you:

#1. Look for a clean, organized space. Something bright with lots of hard surfaces that are easier to disinfect. Y

#2. Pick out a more private location than a bar or eaterie. The more other people are around, the greater your social distancing risks.

#3. Find a conference room location that allows flexibility of setups, perhaps with additional space that could be added for expanded capacity and opportunity.
