Your guide to booking Bristol's meeting rooms

Meetings in Bristol can be a testing challenge. Like Sisyphus you lumber from one to another, burdened by cheap coffee, stark lighting and those awful PVC chairs that take you back to the classroom. It doesn't have to be like that, though. Bristol is crammed with professional boardrooms, unique and inspiring meeting spaces and work-attuned cafes that will elevate your work culture. Let us at HeadBox take you through the perilous journey of booking a knockout meeting room – you can even take the credit.

Mastering the Bristol meeting room

Meetings are like a good party; you don't know how it's going to go down until people start showing up, but you're going to need a venue for it to take place in. You'll need space for everyone to sit and chat, a projector if you're inviting a presenter and plenty of power outlets. Natural lighting and enticing. refreshments can also keep your Bristol meeting fresh and alert Make sure to stress these requirements in your meeting room brief: the best Bristol meeting rooms will then be able to accommodate the specificities of your corporate gathering.

Not every office is the same. Neither are your attendees. Before booking your Bristol meeting room, consider the work culture of the office and the kind of people who will attend the meeting. A corporate office is going to be a very different venue from a cool, creative agency in the city centre. It's also worth considering participants.

Getting around Bristol

Commuting is never fun, and you should ensure that your Bristol meeting room is conveniently located for all the attendees. If you know many people will be driving in, specify parking as a necessity. Do your colleagues use public transport? Bristol is well connected by intercity buses and national trains, locating your well-planned meeting near a station stop will earn you their gratitude (and the environment will thank you, too).

Budgeting in Bristol

A meeting room budget can be a difficult nut to crack. Bristol's many meeting venues vary in cost. Stay in control by setting your own budget (we'd recommend doing this per person - this way you'll see how much each guest is allocated and you can micromanage the overall spend). Meeting rooms with high-tech amenities (think quality audio-visual equipment, high-back ergonomic leather chairs and a sweeping view of the city skyline) will set you back more, where more minimal meeting rooms may be an option for those brainstorming on a budget. The important thing to remember is that you set the limit: tell us what you're willing to spend and we'll make sure the right Bristol meeting room reaches out to you.

For meeting rooms in Bristol, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

Smoovin the Cat, The Waterfront – With free tea and coffee, a ping pong table and vibrant wall art, this meeting room will brighten up any meeting (at least a little).

Brunel's Boardroom, Engine Shed – This boardroom seats up to 20 people and is an impressive choice for mid-sized meetings.

A meeting room in Bristol can start at £50 for a short rental of a small basic room, and go up to £500 or more for a day at a swish venue with facilities and catering. There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of hiring a meeting room. How many guests are you planning for? What's the neighbourhood for your meeting? Is the venue for an hour, a day or a week? The good news is that you can find a space for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Bristol meeting room. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best meeting rooms in Bristol and let you enjoy your free time. Easy
