For many small businesses and startups, a conference room is either being used as a spare office or doesn’t exist at all. But for those without a conference room, meeting at a coffee shop or restaurant may not be an option, due to budget constraints, and let’s face it, it’s not the ’60s anymore, when Mad Men-style “power lunches” were the norm. Not to mention that meeting in a public place may raise issues surrounding privacy. The same goes for home-based businesses.
For those in the Ottawa area, renting a meeting space designed for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) is an excellent way to make a good first impression with clients and potential employees. Renting boardrooms and meeting rooms also gives your organization a place for meetings, interviews, and training.
Below are additional benefits of a meeting space and boardroom rental in Ottawa for SMBs and startups:
Many SMBs and startups may feel that they cannot afford to rent a building that has a meeting room until they are making more money; even renting a conference room may seem like a huge obstacle. However, it is possible to find affordable meeting space rentals in Ottawa that won’t break your budget.
Renting also allows you to save money, since you can use a smaller office and only rent a meeting room when needed; for an increasing number of SMBs, this is their go-to choice.
It Provides a Flexible Option
Even if your business has a meeting space, it may be booked for an important client meeting or interview. Renting a boardroom or meeting room allows for flexibility during busy times.
For businesses that do not have a location, such as home-based and virtual offices, renting a conference room or meeting space will provide a professional place to meet with clients, interview employees, and more. Meeting space rentals in Ottawa can also be set up fairly quickly, often by the next day.
Save on Furniture and Staffing Costs
A meeting or boardroom rental in Ottawa should come with fully furnished offices, including a receptionist to greet guests. It should also offer you a telephone answering service, IT staff, and basic assets like refreshments. For a startup or SMB on a limited budget, these benefits can be an asset.
Close to Major Business Centres
Businesses that provide boardroom rentals in Ottawa tend to offer a convenient location close to major business centres and transportation hubs, so clients can easily travel to them. Rented meeting and conference rooms also tend to be located close to major airports and hotels, where traveling executives stay.
