A meeting room is the work place by excellence. It is absolutely fundamental to your coworking center. It will enable your coworkers to meet up when they need to and they will also have a place to host their presentations for outsiders.
A ‘fitting’ meeting room for your coworking center
No need to replicate a corporate super serious and fancy meeting room. You need to set up a meeting room suitable to your members’ needs: training, unit meeting, client presentation, etc. For a middle-sized coworking center, the meeting room should be able to accommodate around 10 individuals. The meeting room must be clean and tidy at all times. Make your members’ responsible for the place: they should clean (or at least clear the place) after they pass by.
What equipment for a shared office’s meeting room?
Setting up perfect offices for your coworking space is paramount. So is it for meeting rooms! The meeting can be crucial for your coworker (contract negotiation, brainstorming, presentation of a prototype…), so he must be in possession of whichever elements that will bring up his confidence. All his experiences in this room must be successful.
Do not cut corners on quality! Your coworkers deserve to feel at ease and comfortable. And your center’s image also depends on it ;)
Technology serving your coworkers’ interests
Computer technology has invaded our working places and the meeting room is no exception. Some computing accessories for you meeting room are must-haves, here is our selection:
a VGA/HDMI connector, and an Apple connector,
audio/visio conferencing equipment,
a selection of battery chargers for computers,
high quality Wi-Fi.
Basics of the meeting room
Some things are inherently part of the meeting room. A white board, or a paper board for that matter, is essential! Oh, and don’t forget to fuel your coworkers… with bottles of water! :)
Booking the meeting room has to be easy
You should invest and develop a simple yet super efficient booking platform so that your coworkers do not stress about the meeting room on top of having to finish their presentation. Your members will not always be on location so you should choose an online booking system (it will make things easier for you and your coworkers).
The little extra: a digital tablet at the entrance of the meeting room is a good option to inform people on the availabilities, to book last-minute or even to comment on the place.
