Three Unique Venues Which Will Enliven Your Meeting in Bristol
If you’re organising meetings in Bristol and are looking for an unusual way to spice up proceedings, there are three unique Bristol meeting rooms which ought to be on your radar. When most people think of private meeting rooms, they probably picture bland and characterless office spaces – they don’t have to be. By hosting a meeting in an exclusive, unusual venue, you’ll not only impress your clients but give you all something to talk about beyond the set agenda.
However important they might be, professional business meetings can undoubtedly be dreary and are rarely something attendees looks forward to – unless, of course, you find a creative way to liven them up! Here are three of our most popular Bristol meeting rooms for hire, and the ways you could use them to inject a bit of fun and energy into your next professional meeting…
To enliven the event, you could try hosting your meeting at Bristol Zoo and giving your important clients an unexpected chance to take a walk on the wild side. The Council Room, Garden Room and Members Room, each offer a cost effective option to hire for a small meeting. If you are looking for a bigger space, your delegates would love the Clifton Suite, which overlook the Zoo’s fantastic gardens. You can also take the chance to get up close and personal with their huge wildlife collection.
If you take out the midweek day delegate rate, you not only get the room hire, refreshments throughout the day and lunch you might expect, but complimentary tickets to the Bristol Zoo itself. You could escape the confines of the conventional meeting room and get out to walk and talk whilst taking in the parkland and animals – it’s probably not something your attendees were expecting!
Meeting rooms in Bristol don’t come better than M-Shed which offers unique and flexible spaces and a superb location on the harbour side in the heart of Bristol. The former transit shed with its fantastic views now offers spacious meeting rooms with state of the art equipment including LCD projectors, a powerful sound system and high speed wifi. That’s not the best bit though – to make a real impact on your clients, you could arrange for your CEO to arrive in style by being winched in on a crane. Making a grand entrance is a sure-fire way to liven up a meeting before it’s even begun!
Great value is offered through the midweek day delegate package which includes all day meeting room hire along with morning and afternoon refreshments and a fantastic fork or finger buffet. To really show off there’s a rooftop terrace too, from which visitors can enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of Bristol’s iconic harbour.
If you fancy the South West, but want to get out of the city, then Exeter Racecourse could be the ideal place to hold an important professional meeting if you want to truly ‘wow’ delegates you’re introducing yourselves to for the first time. With multiple state of the art conference and meeting rooms, a day at the races could help sway any decisions made in your favour. All our business meeting rooms are equipped with everything you could need to hold a successful and stress-free meeting, while there’s plenty of parking and outside space all overlooking the beautiful Devon countryside.
Midweek delegate rates are all competitively priced, and organising a bespoke package means you can tailor everything to suit the style of meeting you want to conduct and to suit the attendees you’re hosting. Once business is out of the way, soaking up the atmosphere of this prestigious sports venue and maybe even catching a little of the racing could be a great way to round off proceedings.
You’re likely to get much better results from your meeting if you can liven up proceedings and give attendees something to remember. Don’t give them a run-of-the-mill meeting – pick an unusual venue, make a big, bold gesture and shake things up a bit!
With one of our unique venues you’ll give your clients something to talk about. If you’re interested in these or any of the other fantastic meeting rooms in Bristol which are available through Lime Venue Portfolio, simply get in touch with our expert team today.
