Meeting Rooms & the New Normal

Ira Weinstein  (Founder and Managing Partner, Recon Research)

Date: Thursday, August 6

Time: 3:30pm - 4:15pm

Session Category: Standard Conference Sessions

Vault Recording: TBD

Slowly but surely, enterprises are moving from lockdown mode to return-to-office mode, but the office will be a very different place for at least the near future. Social distancing will require reconfiguring offices and reallocating work spaces.

In terms of meeting rooms, which have long been among the most coveted spaces, the challenge is clear. How can (and should) organizations effectively leverage their meeting rooms when working in close proximity is a health hazard? And from an AV/IT perspective, what will become of the huddle room? Will these smaller spaces still be the place where people meet and work all day long?

In this session, the leading video/AV industry analyst will help you understand the changes coming in your work environment and work policies, and how to make the most of your meeting rooms in a back-to-the-office world. This session will also provide insight into the changing role of meeting room video conferencing in the COVID-impacted business world.

  • What changes are companies making (or going to make) within their facilities to protect their workers? What changes should they make?
  • How will meeting rooms be used in the short and medium-term?
  • Should organizations continue with planned meeting room investments, decrease their investments, or simply put their plans on hold?
  • How will meeting rooms be used post-Covid?

Video of this session is available on demand within the Swapcard platform for registered users. Free registration is open through December 2020.
