As one of the business hubs of the Western World, London attracts many businessmen and businesses themselves to jostle for space in London. This means that there’s a lot of competition and a lot of choice when it comes to trying to find a business or conference space. When people think of business rooms they often think of drab, corporate office spaces with no flare. With London being one of the revolutionary forces in the world of corporate aesthetics, just look at the iconic design of The Shard for proof, then you can throw your ideas of corporate hell out of the window.
How to choose a good conference venue
So what exactly needs to go into an office, meeting or conference space to stimulate workers and achieve positive and creative results from a meeting? It is not merely air conditioning, although I’m sure that helps.
Staff response time
One of the main issues surrounding corporate event spaces is how hospitable the events staff are and how well you and your other guests are catered for. You want to find a space where the staff are friendly and are willing to help you when necessary as well as acting quickly to cater to your needs. Response times are crucial; stressed out businessmen and women don’t want to be waiting for an hour for a glass of water.
If you’re going to be trapped in an office space all day, then views and light are important so as to keep people stimulated. Natural light is always important so as to keep people in a good mood.
For a business person strapped for time, central locations are crucial, with hotels nearby and potential after work entertainment in the vicinity. Whether that means theatre opportunities in the West End, a buzzing Night life in East London or great dining experiences is up to the tastes of the company and the individual.
And so enters the Montcalm Club. With a whole hsot of hotels tailored for the guests comfort and luxury, business and conference rooms are on offer at all the hotels in the Montcalm group. Although each has their own unique style, all are flexible and can be tailored to your needs and desires.
