There are many reasons you may need a meeting room in this fast-paced workplace. Whether it’s for a brainstorming session, a monthly check-in, or a marathon coding session, meeting rooms can be the tool that helps you get the job done. But does timing matter when you’re renting a meeting room? Read on and learn the ins and out of meeting room rental in the modern remote work landscape.
What to Know About Renting a Meeting Room
How to Rent a Meeting Room
Whether you’ve never rented a meeting room before or this is your 50th time, it doesn’t hurt to explore the benefits of a meeting room and how to find meeting rooms for rent near you. So what do meeting rooms offer in the post-COVID work landscape? No matter your industry, you’re going to be working with people. Whether these people are clients, employees, coworkers, or customers, having a neutral space to meet makes sure everyone is putting their best foot forward in your meeting. When a noisy coffee shop just won’t cut it (and has a coffee shop ever been the best meeting place?), a meeting room is the perfect place to find quiet and privacy.
Rentable meeting rooms also come with several perks and benefits. When you rent a meeting room for a day, you aren’t being choosy if you’re expecting some add-ons. Good meeting rooms offer the audio-visual solutions you need to bring in remote employees on screen alongside your in-person team members. You shouldn’t need to worry about things like parking fees for your team or clients, nor the wi-fi connection of the room you’re in. If that’s not included in the rental, it’s not a good rental.
The Best Time of Day to Rent a Meeting Room
Is there really an ideal time of day to rent a meeting room? Well, yes and no. That question can really go two ways: is there a perfect time of day to host a meeting in a meeting room, or is there an ideal time of day to reserve a meeting room? Let’s answer both questions.
First: is there a best time of day for a meeting? Yes, there is. In a typical 9 to 5 workday, it’s been observed that the most productive time for a meeting is Tuesday at 2:30pm. No, really—we’re not making that up! This is based on a study that looked at when meetings were most accepted and when they were most productive. The perfect time is apparently 2:30pm on a Tuesday. It’s not too early in the day that your people are groggy, it’s far enough from lunch that people aren’t just getting back to work, and it’s also far enough from the end of the day that nobody is watching the clock. People are amenable to this time because it just works.
Now for the other question: when is the best time of day to be looking for open meeting rooms? That’s a different story. When renting a room, the earlier, the better. As soon as you have a time in mind, book that space. Most modern meeting room rental spaces have up-to-date calendars online so you can check availability whenever and wherever you may be.
That said, there’s no bad time for a meeting, either. Got a team full of night owls? Meeting rooms can sometimes accommodate late-night check-ins or crunches that burn the midnight oil. Maybe you need to do a Zoom call with an overseas client at a time that’s convenient for them. Your needs for a meeting room can vary, and a good provider of meeting room spaces will recognize that and offer options that work for you.
