Room Hire Brisbane

Suzy Black - Friday, September 09, 2016

Room Hire Brisbane is becoming a more in-demand service as more and more businesses are looking to use satellite staff working from home, and only coming together on an irregular basis to discuss their plans. What this means is that many businesses that once had traditional offices with meeting rooms and boardrooms, are now lacking these facilities and must come up with creative ways that they can get all their staff together in one place.


The solution for many is to look towards renting a space for a short-term, as needed basis. Of course, what is often needed to make this fit is to have the facilities that you would come to expect in a standard business meeting room, and that would include suitable seating, a quiet environment and audio visual equipment to share ideas on a big screen. Traditionally, this would be something that would be handled by a large conference venue, and with that comes a large price tag, so its good to know that things have moved forward and you no longer have to break the bank to find the meeting venue for your business.


That's where Upstairs at Marees comes in - with a modern conference room available to hire at low rates, you can hold your next staff meeting in a central Brisbane location and even provide catering should you so desire. We are flexible when it comes to your requirements, so simply give us a call and we'll be happy to talk about how we can help your business with the space you need.

Using Brisbane Meeting Rooms for Essential Face to Face Meetings

Maree's Cafe - Thursday, September 08, 2016

With 40 percent of all business travel being related to having meetings and attending events, having a go-to meeting space in Brisbane is essential for those who operate on a travelling basis. Unfortunately even with advances in technology, some face to face meetings are just necessary. Most business people will tell you that face to face meetings are key to being successful in their business relationship.

If you are thinking that the easier way to setup your Brisbane meeting rooms is to go to a big hotel with conference facilities, you’ll be surprised to hear that the cost can be more than three to four times that of your other options. What’s more, most hotel meeting spaces don’t come with the essential tools that you require to run your meeting, and you’ll be sprung for more of your dollars for each item you request.

A small coffee shop or café are something many business professionals consider to hold their meeting. But for anything other than the smallest one-on-one meeting, they can be viewed as unprofessional, too noisy, and lacking the privacy and services needed for the majority of meetings. And of course, for many meeting situations a coffee shop table just won’t suffice.

With Upstairs at Marees - getting together with your clients has never been easier. We provide you all the necessary equipment for your meeting, and you can even connect to our wifi network for free! With a cost that’s much lower than other Brisbane meeting rooms, and the flexibility to enjoy breakfast, lunch or tea fresh from the cafe downstairs - Upstairs at Marees is the perfect venue for your Brisbane meeting.

Meeting Room Hire Brisbane

Maree's Cafe - Tuesday, September 06, 2016

We live in a time when on-demand services are rife, and when we are so used to having on-demand everything - that quickly stretches into other areas of life.

But how about when you need a Meeting Room Hire Brisbane -- from a trusted, basic space to sit with some individuals face-to-face, to perhaps a locale that can accommodate hundreds of men and women with all the current accoutrements and IT & AV gadgetry, plus catering, privacy and other services that you'll require?

In today's courageous new trend of thrifty and smarter working, everyone has the opportunity, the individual entrepreneur especially, to work like a huge company, while keeping their funds in balance -- which applies to getting together with places evenly, as well as office or workplace space needs.  Flexibility of having a number of spaces - in different locations dependent upon your needs - that cost a small fraction of what a leased, full-time dedicated office works you -- and you simply pay only for enough time that suits your real, specific needs is definitely one of the smartest business moves that many can achieve.

In our increasingly transient lives, having a functional workspace and working space anywhere in the world, it's comforting to learn that we now have good sources of Meeting Room Hire Brisbane to support you in finding the right kind of space, at the right size, budget and location, including small-to-large getting together with spaces. You don't have to be a big business, or spend a lot of money, to enjoy the fbenefits that larger companies do these days when it comes to meeting spaces.


Suzy Black - Monday, September 05, 2016

With so many of us aiming for the perfect work / life balance it will come as no surprise to hear that there are many more businesses offering their employees the opportunity to work from home, work their own flexible hours and come together with the rest of their team for meetings on an as-needed basis.

This has had a great effect on the workplace, increasing production and being proved as being an extremely cost-effective way of working. However, one of the most challenging aspect for some businesses that no longer have traditional offices is where to hold meetings when they need to collaborate with staff or clients.

Searching Brisbane meeting room rental is one way to find a good reliable venue for you to hold your next conference. In fact you can find that there are a myriad of great cost-effective options for your flexible work place requirements.

With many looking for a basic space to provide staff an area to interact, a meeting room that has some AV and IT basics to share digital knowledge is a must. Flexible meeting spaces in Brisbane city can be expensive, but a short skip over the bridge to South Brisbane can provide you with a great value meeting space including catering and other business services to get your meeting off to a flying start. Brisbane meeting room rental doesn’t need to be expensive, you just need to know where to look to find the best place for your needs.
