With places like Disneyland Park, Santa Monica Pier, and the iconic Hollywood sign in LA, you’ll impress your guests within seconds, particularly if they’re traveling overseas for the meeting. Small meeting rooms are not only great for your attendees to relate to your product or to your business more easily, but they are also way cheaper than larger venues. However, if you want to improve your brand's reputation and credibility, you must consider a few factors while choosing a meeting place. And trust us, you’ll want to save your pennies in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Unless you're trying to wow your audience, there's no need to hire an expensive small venue. When picking a spot, factors like the location, the layout, catering, accommodation, flexibility, and services define the value of the meeting place. But how can you figure out the right venue for you? Well, simply read our guidelines for a helping hand.
Let's get down to business, shall we? Location is a significant aspect of any meeting. From The Hollywoods to Glendale, LA is home to a multitude of beautiful and welcoming neighborhoods.
Ideally, you’ll want to hold your meeting in a place that’s easily accessible. With LA having one of the best transportation networks, you won’t have to worry about people showing up late. (No excuses allowed!) But, let's face it, people are more likely to attend a meeting if they don't have to drive for hours to get there.
With that said, you can book a small meeting room in plenty of venues such as restaurants, cafes, stores, hotels, and even pubs but it’s always a good idea to rent a meeting spot that’s near a few attractions to keep your guests entertained and happy after the serious stuff. Looking for a cozy place with fine diners along with the coast or rooftop venues? Consider renting out a meeting room in The South Bay where your guests can indulge in some sightseeing and relax. If you're conducting an internal gathering to reward your employees, this is ideal. The Hollywoods is another option for a laid-back ambiance with a hint of the past, and this region has plenty to offer, including the Walk of Fame, The Sign, The Chinese Theater, and some fantastic eateries along Hollywood Boulevard. Culver City's vibrant ambiance and burgeoning businesses will give your attendees the indication that your business is on the rise. Home to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and close to many renowned hotels in Beverly Hills such as the Waldorf Astoria, this unique location is ideal to offer an overview of the LA business market to your crew. Have you seen the Prince of Bel-Air featuring Will Smith? Well, if you haven’t yet, you probably don’t get how it feels to be in Bel-Air, a place with unmatchable dining restaurants and beautiful tree-lined roads. If your business partner or clients are traveling with their families, or if you want to stay longer for multiple meetings, this family-friendly area is ideal!
Location is always something important to consider when planning an event! This is why we’ve dedicated a whole section to it! (See above and thank us later!) Amenities such as Wi-Fi are second only to location in importance. Waiting for a meeting to start can be pretty frustrating particularly if you don’t know anyone in the room but if the Wi-Fi is adequate, your guests will keep themselves busy for a few minutes. Furthermore, when presenting or promoting your firm, you will most likely employ various technologies that rely on online capabilities. Utilizing cell phone data during a meeting would be silly. So that Wi-Fi signal better be strong!
Flexibility of Services
The services provided by a meeting space or conference room can impact how well or poorly the meeting goes. An effective venue will give you some flexibility and make arrangements with the venue manager to ensure that your guests are comfortable and that you have all of the technical equipment you need—some items may be charged for, while others may be offered upon request. So make sure you communicate clearly with the host about the need for partitions to break up a conference room, seating arrangements, projectors, video-conferencing equipment or any additional tables or seats, or even flexible prices if you’re planning to hold a meeting at the same place over a longer period of time.
Size of the meeting room
We've said it before and we'll say it again: size does matter! If you're hosting a meeting for six people, make sure you know the exact size of the room as well as the layout to avoid overcrowding the space. Otherwise, your guests will be uncomfortable and want to head out ASAP. The space should be large enough to allow everyone to move around easily. Everything from the air conditioning to the room sizes will have an impact on how the attendees feel throughout the conference! Keep the little things in check and you’ll be rewarded with a check! (Pardon the pun!)
A small meeting room is perfect for a guest capacity of 6–10 persons. Medium-sized venues can accommodate up to 16 people. You can always request additional seats to be provided if you have some extra guests.
The rental price of a small meeting room in LA is around $25-$100 for a budget space. You can rent the spot by the hour or for the whole day. For additional amenities, you will probably have to pay extra. If you’re looking for something on the classier side, you will find many options starting at $100 and upwards. (All data according to Tagvenue)
You can find small meeting spaces in Santa Monica, where your guests can enjoy the beach, or Beverly Hills, where you will find many entertainment options for your attendees, such as Hollywood, the mountains, and the beach. If you’re looking for something in the heart of LA, you need to keep in mind that LA doesn’t have a city center, but there are a few main areas where you can benefit from mass transit, such as Downtown LA and Hollywood; these places are ideal if you are short on time.
You’ll benefit from a versatile array of on-site facilities at the venue. The rental package may include on-site catering or some equipment for your use. Many meeting rooms are highly flexible to meet your needs, so make sure to get in touch with the venue manager to discuss your options.
You can always establish the type of seating arrangement that best suits your requirements. If you’re planning a conference or a learning event, it’s best to organize a classroom arrangement, whereas U-shape seating arrangements are best for teamwork. In any case, these venues will easily accommodate your meeting needs with the assistance of their experienced staff.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
