What is the difference between a meeting room and conference room?
A meeting room is a smaller, more intimate space where people can gather for a meeting or presentation. Conference rooms are larger spaces that are typically used for events such as conferences, seminars, or training sessions. Conference rooms usually have more amenities than meeting rooms, such as audio-visual equipment and catering services. Meeting rooms are typically less expensive to hire than conference rooms.
What should a professional conference room have?
A conference room is a place where people come together to discuss important matters. While the size and layout of conference rooms can vary, there are certain features that all professional conference rooms should have. First and foremost, the room should be large enough to comfortably accommodate all of the participants. It should also have a sturdy table and chairs, as well as a whiteboard or other surface for writing down ideas. Highly important, high speed internet should always be available in a meeting or conference room. In addition, the room should be well-lit and free of distractions.

What makes a good meeting space?
It’s important for meeting spaces to be comfortable and functional. They should be designed to promote collaboration and creativity, and to help people feel relaxed and focused. Good meeting spaces will have a variety of seating options, plenty of natural light, and ample space for people to move around. They should also be located in a quiet, convenient area that is free from distractions. Depending on the meeting types, different needs might be a priority. Whether the space is for a small team meeting or a large conference, taking the time to find the right meeting space can make all the difference.
How can the layout of the venue impact the meeting?
When planning a meeting, it is important to consider the layout of the venue as it will highly have impact on the meeting success and its participants. The most common layouts are the boardroom and the theatre. The boardroom layout is best suited for smaller, more intimate meetings where participants can interact directly with each other. The boardroom style is used most commonly for internal business meetings or meetings of one department. The theatre layout, on the other hand, is better for larger meetings where participants need to be able to see and hear each other clearly. From experience the theatre layout is usually requested when on the agenda there are colleagues presenting quarterly success or new campaign launches, where visual awareness is a key for everyone attending. There are also a variety of other layouts that can be used, depending on the specific needs of the meeting. Regardless of the layout chosen, it is important to ensure that all participants are able to see and hear each other clearly. This will help to ensure that the meeting or conference event is productive and successful.
