Depending on your needs, you can hire a meeting room in Wellington with ease here at Urban Hub. You can even have the room set up according to your specifications, and you’ll even have dedicated staff to greet your guests upon arrival. But the big question is, how much does it cost?
First. Let’s take a look at the questions you need to ask before you hire a meeting room or event space.
What type of meeting room do you need?
You may think that a meeting room is a meeting room and there’s not much more to it. However, not all meeting rooms are created equal. Likewise, they’re all different sizes, and layouts and have varying levels of professional aesthetics.
Here at Urban Hub, we offer several different meeting rooms, catering for small meetings up to larger conferences. Best of all, we can configure different layouts for different needs. So, the first question to ask is what you need the room for. Are you visiting Wellington and meeting with a handful of clients? Or are you looking for a room to host staff development or planning session?
You can ask for boardroom, U-shape, classroom, cabaret, banquet or theatre style, so there are plenty of seating options. However, if the meeting venue you’re considering doesn’t offer different seating configurations, it might be worth looking elsewhere.
How long do you need the room for?
The other thing to ask is how long you need the room for. Urban Hub offers meeting rooms at an hourly rate, but like most things in life, you save money by booking for longer. For example, will you be hosting meetings over a couple of days, or is it just a one-off event?
We offer hourly rates, half-day rates and full-day rates, giving you the flexibility to only pay for what you use.
How many guests are you hosting?
The number of guests in attendance will directly affect the cost of hiring a meeting room. That’s simply because, for more attendees, you need more space. If you’re only hosting a small meeting, you can find interview rooms and other smaller spaces, and naturally, the rates are lower. For example, our interview rooms are available for $40 per hour. For a larger meeting of up to 8 people, we have rooms for $105.
So, there is a considerable difference, and while we believe our rates are very affordable, if you only need to spend $40 per hour it makes no sense to get a larger room and pay more. On the other end of the scale, we have meeting rooms capable of hosting up to 66 people. Multiple meeting rooms can even be opened up to create one larger space.
So, always consider carefully how many people are attending your meeting, to ensure you get the most cost-effective meeting room hire in Wellington.
What facilities do you need?
Another thing to consider is facilities and services. This covers a lot of things, but primarily we’re talking about technology. Certain meeting rooms come equipped with everything you need, such as 86” touchscreens, ceiling speakers, video conferencing capabilities and more.
In addition, you may want to consider other facilities in the building, such as reception services to greet your guests, staff to set up your meeting room, and even catering. For example, here at Urban Hub, we have a licensed café on site and a beautiful outdoor terrace area to entertain guests.
It’s really up to you in terms of which aspects are important to you, but you’ll need to consider them before booking.
