The benefits of creating the best conference room names are often overlooked. Fun, relevant conference room names can add to the office environment and reduce conference room related confusion.
A common mistake that companies make is naming their conference rooms after cities or countries. Initially, this might seem like a good idea, but it can easily lead to confusion. When the conference organizer announces that the meeting will be held at San Francisco, the conference room, the conference attendees might confuse it for being held at San Francisco, the city.
To prevent confusion, name your meeting rooms using this strategy: create short and unique names that represent your company or your products/services in some way. For example, if you are a gaming company, you can name your room after characters from your best-selling games (Mario, Yoshi, Kirby, etc.) If you are a music label, you can name your rooms after best selling songs. If you are a sports company, you can name your rooms after notable athletes.
Our customer, Lundalogik, sets a great example for successfully implementing this strategy. Lundalogik, a software company based in Sweden, sells a product called “Lime.” Following the theme of their product, they named their conference rooms after food and drinks containing lime. For their conference rooms in Lund, Sweden, they named their rooms Key Lime Pie, Guacamole, Daiquiri, and Mojito. These fun and lighthearted names endorses their product, while providing precision when communicating about conference room scheduling.
So take a few extra minutes to name your conference rooms with intention. You can build your brand, intrigue visitors, build corporate culture, and make your conference rooms more memorable.
