Virtual Conference Space Hire

Posted on January 30, 2021 at 7:18 pm

Hiring a space for a conference might not seem possible at the moment, but people are moving into the online world and some conferences are becoming purely online events in the meantime. This means that there is still the option to hold conferences and to showcase excellent guest speakers and people from within your company, it will just need to follow a different format. Hiring out a space can still be a good option because homes don’t look as professional, and in order to reach lots of people (if this is what you want to do with your conference), you will need to have access to excellent audio visual equipment and a very good internet connection. You can hire out meeting rooms and smaller conference spaces for this task, which may be the best option for ensuring good quality audio with no disturbances. Equipment can be hired alongside this to make the conference run smoothly.

Hot Desking for Flexible Working Environments

Posted on November 29, 2020 at 9:47 pm

Working environments are changing more than ever and people have more autonomy to work in the way that suits them. People may not want to go into an office all the time, or they may own small businesses, or operate as sole traders. Some people also will only need to use offices occasionally as well, such as if they are a tradesperson. Hot desks can prove very useful for all kinds of workers, offering the potential to work in a professional environment with a comfortable, well equipped desk, but also to work with full flexibility. Hot desks tend to be available in professional spaces and serviced offices, and they can be hired by the month or on a daily basis. People can choose the working patterns that will suit them when they have access to a hot desk. Many buildings that offer hot desks will also have lounges and break out zones, giving people who work there even more flexibility.

Hiring Business Spaces: What to Look For

Posted on August 28, 2020 at 12:34 am

Businesses need to hire spaces on a regular basis. This might be a hall for an event like a team building day, or it might be a space for a conference spanning several days. There are some universal things that can be looked for when hiring out a business space.

  1. The cost of the venue. It needs to be in balance with the facilities offered and the capacity. Many venues are available – don’t settle for a bad price for fear of missing out.
  2. The facilities. Some spaces are serviced, meaning people will be on hand to help manage the venue and look after your needs throughout the day.
  3. The access. Conference and business venues should be easily accessible for everyone including those with additional mobility requirements. Make sure the venue is accessible and ensure it is easy to reach by both car and public transport for the delegates and speakers and attendees.

Why is Three the Magic Number for Quotes?

Posted on June 30, 2019 at 10:45 pm

You might have heard that if you are choosing a product or service, you should obtain three quotes first. But why is three the number you should choose? And what is it about getting three quotes that will benefit you?

Really, three is a fairly arbitrary number. You can get as many or as few quotes as you like, as long as you are happy with the price you will be paying. If you are going to be getting quotes for a property management company, it is generally required that you get more than one – unless you work loyally with one particular company for all maintenance needs. Should you choose to get quotes, getting more than one is reasonable and is expected in the industry. You will need to show that you are aware of the general marketplace and the going rate for services, and this is the perfect way of doing so.
