5 Important Things to Consider When Hiring Space for a Meeting

13th October 2017


When choosing a space to hire for an important meeting or workshop, location is key! You must consider how easy the venue is for everyone to reach, if it’s near a train station, or if it’s in a good area. This will reduce the chance of people being late, stressed, or even lost!


Depending on how long you’re meeting will last, it’s important to consider how easy it will be for your attendees to get a drink or a bite to eat. There’s nothing worse than arriving to a meeting after a long commute without being offered so much as a glass of water or a cup of tea!

For a half a day meeting or anything shorter, ensure you can at least provide soft drinks, tea, coffee and biscuits. For anything longer, lunch is a good idea too!

Tech Facilities

Most offices will be able to provide you with screens, a keyboard and other essentials, but do be sure to enquire about any extras, as some places may require you to bring your own equipment, and the last thing you need is to be left without a vital component to your meeting or workshop!



Depending on how you and your attendees are getting to a meeting, you need to prepare for those driving, as no one wants to pay hefty parking fees or fines. If parking is unavailable, and your meeting is longer than a couple of hours, it may be worth re-considering and looking somewhere else.


Overall Cost

Some offices can start off seeming a reasonable price, but with some places, once you’ve added your refreshments, use of screens, parking and VAT, you’re looking at a lot more £££’s than you bargained for! Be sure to check the small print and look around before settling for big prices.
