How to Plan a Business Conference: Let a Business Center Do the Work

02.13.12

The business conference. It’s those inevitable few days of your professional life that, although enriching, are a nuisance to plan. There are facilities to secure, caterers to contact, and an endless stream of administrative tasks to complete. So streamline this process by hosting your next conference at a business center!

A business center provides a more professional and intimate environment for conferences than the typical hotel. Business centers also offer more flexible office space like boardrooms, conference rooms, temporary office rentals, and creative alternatives like a business lounge or open co-working space. Business centers at the end of the day can adapt to all of your set-up needs.

At the same time it takes a dedicated staff to organize a conference, and your company may not be able to spare the man-hours necessary to tackle the many tasks leading up to and during a conference. Executive suites already have a permanent staff ready to take care of all your needs: from setting up tents to making your morning coffee, they can handle almost anything, leaving you with just the task of showing up. You’ll also have the flexibility to take advantage of the staff as much or as little as you need, saving you time and resources.

Furthermore when it comes to executive office suites, location is everything. That’s why many business centers are located in close proximity to hotels, major roads and public transportation. This gives your conference attendees the option to stay on site for the conference or commute. You may think that one of the good things about holding a conference at a hotel is the discounted sleeping room rates; however, you don’t have to hold the conference at the hotel to secure this advantage. Most hotels will give you a group rate any time you need to book ten or more rooms for an event. This is something the administrative support staff at your business center could easily set up with the hotel for you.

Lastly, hosting an industry conference is simply a great networking opportunity your business cannot afford to miss. Don’t be intimidated. Leave the heavy lifting to a serviced office provider and have a flawless conference experience at a fraction of the cost!
