5 Tips for Planning Your Conference Room

Designing a new space or reconfiguring an existing space is an opportunity to make an impact on your organization! From pleasing aesthetics that make a statement to functionality and versatility that will enhance productivity, the choices you make are important.

If you have never planned a conference room before, here are some things to think about:

  1. Why custom?

    A table is a tool you use and a place you gather, and a signal you send about who you are and what you believe.

    Why doesn’t ordinary work? Do you need a special size? Special features or materials? Advanced audiovisual capabilities? Logos or branding?  If you need guidance, our design engineers will deploy their vast experience to help you identify what’s important to you and how to get it.

  2. Understand your space

    All of your choices regarding your table are going to be influenced by the size and shape of your room. You also need to consider the location of doors, columns, and other furniture. Where will your screens go? How do you accommodate that once-a-year crowd? We’ve put together some simple rules to help you. And we’re happy to give you suggestions – contact us for a free custom analysis.

  3. What kind of impression do you want to make?

    Every room sends a message to its users. Is your meeting space where outsiders interact with your organization, or is it just used for internal functions? Will your table get hard use or is it a more formal setting? We know how to package all of your requirements in a design that will precisely communicate who you are while accomplishing all of your functional requirements.

  4. Set a budget

    Cost is ALWAYS an important factor in design. If you aren’t sure how much custom tables cost, we’ve put together some guidelines. Not sure where you should be? Contact us and we’ll help you. We know how to tailor our ideas to give you the most value for your dollar.

  5. Consider connectivity

    What kind of technology do you need in your meetings? Are you holding regular video conferences with colleagues on the other side of the country, or do you just need to charge a phone? We’ll help you figure out how the A/V tech will work and where it should go.
