Some great uses for meeting rooms are:

  • Training Sessions – Training days are designed to educate and build connections among peers. Over the course of the training, you can set a plan for lectures and tasks surrounding a specific set of skills that will benefit your organisation. Offering lectures is a good way to provide information to your audience, and enable people experienced in the field to share their knowledge. Incorporating tasks into your training is also beneficial as it allows the group to turn theories into practice. The Studio Manchester in Piccadilly is a great example of a place that is good for this kind of event, featuring a more laid back and open space that encourages collaboration and conversation.
  • Seminars and Symposia – Meeting rooms are great spaces for hosting seminars or symposia. These are events where experts in a particular field can present their knowledge and experience to their professional peers. These are great learning experiences for all involved, from the seasoned veteran to the novice. Many of these events and lectures will utilise a Powerpoint to guide the audience, so they are best held in larger spaces with a full array of audio/visual equipment that will make sure that everyone can hear and take part in the discussion. The Boardroom at Chamber Space in Manchester City Centre is an excellent example of an ideal meeting room that is perfect for these types of events.
  • Creative Tasks and Brainstorming – Sessions like these have some distinct advantages. These are normally not formal, offering a relaxed environment for your colleagues. Brainstorming sessions are also often held in small groups which is not only more comfortable for the people attending but also more cost effective when it comes to finding a good space to host the meeting. These sessions allow people to learn more about the business, and also encourage fostering stronger relationships between peers.

Manchester has plenty of options to choose from, so you will be spoiled for choice. With this range of choices comes an opportunity to find a spot that is perfect for you. When making your final selection, it is important to consider turn out, location, and price. Centrally-located larger venues will be pricier than those found on the outskirts of town. The advantage of a centrally-located large meeting room is that they are sometimes connected to or near hotels, which makes them super convenient for guests from out of town. Smaller spaces will be more affordable, and are great places to host interviews or brainstorming sessions with small groups of peers. If you have a meeting that will go all day, it is best to seek a place near restaurants or other businesses that offer catering options. Refreshments and beverages will ensure that your guests will stay alert and fresh throughout the day.

How to plan a successful meeting

The key to hosting a successful and productive meeting is to have a plan and stick to it as much as possible. There is, of course, a time limit for the venue, so keeping to a schedule is of paramount importance for making sure you use your allotted time to its fullest. Proper organisation and scheduling will also ensure that your meeting will go smoothly. When you come prepared, you create an environment that promotes learning and also ensures that your peers or guests will also feel as if their time is valued, especially if people are coming in from places outside of Manchester.

Things to keep in mind for proper organisation are:

  • Speakers 
  • Planned breaks
  • Q&A Sessions
  • Breakout sessions and team exercises

Meeting rooms are some of the best places to hold a variety of events for your organisation, as there are very few limits to their use. Tagvenue has dozens of professional spaces that offer all of the features that you will need for a  productive event. Along with this, you can utilise the smart filtering options on our site to help you find exactly what you are looking for.

Guests Reviews of Meeting Rooms on Tagvenue

Hannah Cheyne
Booked Tony Wilson at Chamber Space
What a great meeting space, airy comfortable private rooms, with all the facilities we needed. The concierge and reception made us feel really welcome and were helpful, approachable and friendly. We will definitely be using these meeting spaces again. We ordered pastry breakfast and a lunch and both were excellent in quality and volume!
Melissa Horner

Kate White
Booked The Loft at Oppidan Social HQ Bishops Gate
This is a lovely venue and we were so grateful to be accommodated at such short notice. The booking process was easy and it was good to have the option of booking catering or ordering externally. When we arrived at the venue I was surprised to find an assortment of breakfast cereals, snacks and pastries - this was lovely and unexpected. I brought my own herbal tea as most venues only provide the standard tea and coffee, I was delighted to find a variety of teas, hot chocolate and coffee. The room was a good size and came with a projector which was easy to set-up. There were pens and a flip chart too which came in useful. The building is in a quiet area away from the road and the room we used was up on the first floor so it was nice and quiet - it felt like you were away from everything and could focus on the task in hand. The staff were lovely and pleasant and everyone loved the dogs in the staff room downstairs :-)

The overall service was excellent, from Victoria who dealt with my booking, right down to the gallery staff who were assisting throughout the day. The room was more than sufficient for our needs and also nice and bright. The organisation of the day was stress free for myself and the day went smoothly with great feedback.
