The way in which we meet for business has changed a lot over the last few years. With it, the role of people who regularly book meetings or events is changing too. Whether it’s a meeting for 2 or 200 people, it’s no longer just about cost, co-ordination, and schedules – delegate experience is now at the centre of it all.
Often the role of the meeting room booker is only a small part of their job and so ease of booking and reliability is the key to decision making. They also want to make sure that flexibility to change requirements is permitted. Why sign up to contracts that mean you must pay or your meeting space if you cancel once you have booked. Venues like Workplace where if you don’t cancel within a two-week window you won’t be charged are available. There are many reasons why choosing the right meeting venue will give a better return on investment and value for money.
Many more companies are opting to hold meetings out of hotels so that they are not seen as a jolly and are judged as more serious. At the other end small meetings for 2 who have over the years moved to the local coffee shop are again looking for venues that offer the relaxed atmosphere but not the distraction. After all, do you want your top people discussing business shoulder to shoulder with a shopper or even worse your competitor?
Workplace Manchester has been at the forefront of this change. Our team have helped to plan and execute, unique, impactful, and productive meetings and events which leave colleagues, delegates and attendees inspired, engaged, and fulfilled.

The team at Workplace have years of experience and will ensure that your meeting is a great success and creates the right impression. This is the perfect environment in which to collaborate, share ideas, strategize, build relationships, and solve challenges.
Our individually designed, high specification meeting rooms can seat 2 to 60 people. If it is a larger business social event, then a presentation for up to 100 with refreshment space is available for evenings and weekend. Stylish settings are provided, and seating can be adapted to suit your requirements, whether you are looking for boardroom, theatre, cabaret, u-shape, or standing.
Technology can make or break a meeting, which is why our meeting rooms are designed to be easy to use yet powerful. All our rooms can be equipped with audio conference phones, HD screens and projectors connecting via HDMI and VGA cables.
Refreshments are also something that need to be easily accessible so going to a venue where you can get a high-quality latte as and when you want it is important. Being able to take coffee breaks at a time that suite you and the venue and where you will not be charged for each serving are available and the best choice. Open for lunch? Yes, that is possible we and catering can be provided be it a quick breakfast, buffet lunch or afternoon tea.
There are many reasons to take your meeting off site and productivity is proved to increase if the environment is correct.
Manchester is a great choice for meetings and it is worth looking at venues that you would not normally think would be available to outside business.
