Ah, the boardroom meeting. They’re not always well known for causing feelings of excitement and intrigue from the calendar request to the actual meeting, however, it doesn’t need to be so bad.
No matter what the reason for your meeting or get-together as a team, we’ve got a boardroom to suit your needs and requests. Whether you’re just looking for a general off-site meeting room or something a little different, check out our boardroom venues to give yourselves the best – and most inspiring – space for what you need.
Ways to use your boardroom venue
When we think of boardrooms, we usually think of meetings – and for good reason. They’re a great place for members of your company to come together and discuss certain matters or projects within your business. Whether you’re getting people from around the country (or even the world) together or having a meeting with your staff, hiring a meeting room in London can be ideal, especially for those without the in-house space available. On Canvas, we’ve got a lot of different meeting rooms in London available to hire so check them out!
Training is key to the development of your company. Admittedly, training days aren’t everyone’s favourite things, but seeing as they help with business growth and team strength, they’re worth your time. Boardrooms are a brilliant setting for some training days or training workshops. With whiteboards, Powerpoint presentations, and everyone taking notes around the table, you can foster a professional classroom-like environment to spur on everyone’s learning and focus.
Boardrooms are a great place to get people together for a conference, and they’re especially good for conference calls. With everyone in one room, you can discuss your business proposals, needs and shared interests easily.
Bigger boardrooms and meeting spaces can be set up to be the perfect place for intimate product launches. There’s no reason you have to choose a traditional boardroom – in whatever event you’re organising. Opt for something a little more unique, somewhere that will best show off your product. We’ve got loads of potential boardroom spaces up for grabs, some of which could be the perfect venue for a small product launch.
Networking isn’t all cocktail parties and industry experts. Sometimes, it’s nice to just get some people in a room to talk about what you’re good at, and a boardroom can be a wonderful place to get that done. Not everyone enjoys putting on a cocktail dress and wandering around a room to mingle, and these types of events can sometimes suit a more relaxed, sit-down vibe.
Finding the perfect boardroom
Boardrooms aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing, so it’s important that you choose wisely. Don’t assume that any old boardroom venue will do; the location, space and layout all matter. Of course, it depends on what you want the boardroom for, but there are a few other considerations to take on board before you lock one down.
Step 1: Why do you need the boardroom?
At the risk of repeating ourselves, the purpose of the boardroom really does matter. It’s super important so we’ll say it again: what is the boardroom for exactly? Are you planning a meeting, conference, product launch, training day or something entirely different? Once you’ve answered that question you should know more about what you need from your venue of choice.
Step 2: Numbers
No, we don’t mean the numbers from the last quarter, we mean the number of people you need the venue to accommodate for. It’s no use booking a huge venue for only a handful of people, or worse still, having everyone crammed into one tiny room.
Step 3: Budget
We can’t forget the money-shaped elephant in the room. You’ll need to find out how much is in the budget for the venue, as well as any refreshments and equipment. Boardroom venues in London vary from the high-class to the budget. Canvas choose the best of the bunch, no matter what their pricing.
Step 4: Facilities
Once you know why you need the boardroom, it should be pretty easy to dwindle down the options to a shortlist based on what facilities you need the venue to have. You need to ensure it can accommodate for the number of people, fits into the budget, and has any other facilities you need, from computer equipment and WiFi to wheelchair access.
Step 5: Take a look around
So, you’ve got (at least) a shortlist of venues? Great. The next step is to go and have a look around them, if that’s possible. Or, if you’re not keen on the idea or can’t fit a site visit into your busy schedule, just get in touch with the venues and make sure they’ve got everything you need.
Step 6: Book fast!
We strongly recommend that you don’t beat around the bush once you’ve found your ideal boardroom venue in London. All the best meeting spaces and boardrooms in London get snapped up fast.
A little something different
It’s not just the standard boardroom that can be an asset for corporate get-togethers and meetings, we have lots of unique venues that can add that little added sparkle to your meeting. I mean, you want to make sure everyone stays awake and engaged, right? Well, what better way to do that than to opt for something a little out of the ordinary.
From bars, library rooms and nightclub venues to grand halls and cosy cafes, take a chance of some unique venues for a boardroom meeting.
