Creative Ways to Add Some Fun to Your Meeting in Manchester

Jazz Things up with Music

Meetings shouldn’t be monologues.  People don’t absorb facts when they are delivered in long speeches, so if you want to get your message home you need to hand it to them in manageable, bite-sized chunks.  One of the best ways to break up those bite-sized chunks might be through introducing music to your meetings.  The variation between speech and tunes not only keeps people engaged and mentally stimulated, but music has also been shown to aid memory and improve concentration.

Find a venue which can provide high-tech meeting rooms and you are on to a winner.  The Imperial War Museum North is one of our most unique venues in Manchester and soon to be launching their new purpose built event spaces. With the new spaces, you have all the mod-cons you could need to inject a little more life into your private meeting.  All meeting rooms are fully equipped, with high speed wifi, LCD projectors and PA systems – so why not jazz things up and make your attendees feel more lively.


Audience Participation

Two words most people dread, but one of the best ways to inject a little fun into your meetings is by getting your attendees a little more involved.  Concentration levels are improved if there is plenty of mental stimulation rather than a monologue of facts and figures, so try and find creative ways of getting the audience to participate.  It could be handing out little prizes for the person who gives the fastest answer to a question or who pitches the most ‘outside the box’ idea, or having a bit of a quiz to get everyone feeling involved.

At the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) in Manchester, you’ll find meeting rooms to accommodate both large and small parties - whatever the size of your audience, there will be plenty of space to get them on their feet and taking a more active role in proceedings.  As one of our most unique handpicked venues, the MSI is operated by an expert events planning team who can ensure you have everything you need to make your meeting that little bit more exciting…
