Meetings happen year round, but what truly makes a great meeting? We have three tips to get you started for creating a meeting that will leave your guests feeling like they just experienced the best meeting of their lives.
1.Location. You want to find a location that is convenient for your guest to get to for their meeting. You will want to consider parking, ease of access to the building, and distance from the closest airport. Sodexo Conferencing meeting venues offer locations in close proximity to metro area’s, public transportation, and airports.
2. On-site activities. When choosing a location, you want to make sure there is enough technology, projector screens, tables and chairs, and white boards to help achieve the objectives of the meeting. But have you thought about team building activities? Kicking off the day with an ice breaker can be taken to the next level by convening in the lawn of the Sodexo Conferencing property or even inquiring about on-site team building activities such as ice skating, bowling, or ropes course adventures.
3. Food. Allowing your attendees to be filled with coffee and a warm meal will go the extra mile in terms of happiness for attendees. Many of our Sodexo Conferencing properties have coffee stations in the lobby of the conference centers. We are also known for our catering and therefore offer catered meals as well as stationary buffets that offer a variety of options for every dietary restriction. The dining areas in our locations allow your attendees a break from the meeting agenda to network and dialogue about the meaningful nuggets of wisdom they have gained during the sessions.
Best of luck with your meeting planner and let us know if you need help in discovering a new venue for your next event!
