Meeting rooms are an exceptionally important part of every office. They’re where teams come together to collaborate, share ideas and make important decisions. They’re where you can find yourself for hours at a time, chipping away at an idea, a strategy, a vision.
So, you need to ensure that the meeting rooms you use reflect your needs as an individual, a team and a business. And you need to be comfortably able to channel your creativity to ensure that all time spent there is maximally productive for everyone involved.
Gone are the days when you and your team have to huddle together in the corner of the noisy kitchen. Here are some of the best meeting rooms in Manchester, all of which can be booked by the hour using the Hubble Pass.
