Setting content aside, planning a successful meeting in today’s environment is about style, comfort, functionality, and creating unique experiences. Before you plan your next corporate meeting, take the time to select comfortable furnishings that will impress attendees and cater to their needs. Your end goal should be an experience that helps facilitate collaboration, interaction and cohesive learning. Begin planning your next corporate meeting by identifying comfortable, stylish design furnishings that fit your brand.
Here are a few suggestions on how to customize your meeting space through thoughtful design furnishings:
Stylish First Impression
Traditional conference-style seating for corporate meetings is no longer on-trend. Instead, meeting planners are customizing their spaces depending on brand culture, audience size and audience needs. One of the biggest trends for meetings in 2017 is stylish lounge seating that allows meeting goers to mentally step out of the office and tap into their creative side. Check out CORT’s contemporary black fabric Key Largo Sofa, loveseat and armchair or its Xander Sofa.
Collaborate in Style
Versatile pod-style seating has become increasingly popular for today’s meetings. Use pod seating to boost team-building breakout sessions and encourage open communication in a comfortable environment. CORT’s Endless Collection can be configured in a variety of ways to suit your space.
Also, consider the Island Double Sofa in gray vinyl or gray fabric for another option that represents modern minimalism. For breakaways requiring room to write or table space for eating, the Island Double Sofa comes with powered table options with either marble or glass finishes. Each table conveniently includes a power hub with outlets and USB ports to keep your attendees charged.
Breakout sessions do not always need to take place in the same space as the main meeting room, or indoors. Take the team outside with CORT’s woven frame five-piece Boca Sectional in cream or tan.
Accessorize in Brand Colors
Don’t be afraid to use accessories to help infuse your brand’s personality into your meeting space. Whether it’s bringing nature inside with hints of greenery such as a tall Bamboo Tree, adding a sophisticated Glass Floor Lamp or a textured Shag Rug in your brand’s colors, there are a number of ways you can add color and personal touches that help raise your brand’s voice.
Keep Connectivity Top of Mind
In today’s world where we are constantly connected to our digital devices, it’s important to equip your meeting spaces with powered furniture. Overlooking this detail will leave meeting attendees feeling distracted and scrambling to find seating close to power sources. Check out CORT’s new Powered Hexagon Ottoman with Glass Tables. Meeting attendees can choose to charge up their devices during meeting breaks, ensuring they never miss an important phone call or email.
Implement these recommendations in your upcoming corporate meetings to create spaces that are trendy, collaborative and comfortable, leaving a lasting impression on your meeting attendees. To learn more about CORT’s event rental collections, visit cortevents.com.
