For the next match-up we look at meeting at the coffee shop for a meeting vs. renting out a conference room. This is another one where it really depends on the situation. A coffee shop provides neutral ground with obvious amenities, but what it lacks is privacy and professionalism required for many situations. Answering a few simple questions can help you decide:
Will it be a challenge if you cannot find a table?
Do you mind if others evesdrop on your discussion?
Will this meeting project an impression on your busines?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you may want to consider renting a private conference room. A small conference room in Somerville is $30/hour and your first booking is 50% off. Our monthly virtual members get 50% off the rate every day. A large conference room is also available for meetings and seminars up to 30 people. Here are some benefits of a renting out a conference room:
Flexibility to rent by the hour or day
Rooms can be reserved in advance so you're sure you have a place to meet
A receptionist can greet your guest / client
Private meeting place ensures no one is listening to your discussion
Includes coffee from a Starbucks coffee machine for you and your guests!
Good luck with your next meeting!
