Business travel can be exhausting for the most seasoned business traveler - even without the accompanying meetings, conferences and networking sessions. When you add uncomfortable meeting rooms, a poor selection of food options, and technical issues into the mix, you get a business traveler’s nightmare.
Unfortunately, this nightmare is a reoccurring issue, as well as topic of discussion, for business travelers who frequently share tips on where to book the best venue, hotel or restaurant with one another - but it shouldn’t have to be this difficult, should it? Here is what happens when design in its broadest sense is thought into the entire business experience!
Leave your meeting participants feeling more energized and focused
Natural daylight and fresh air have been known to increase energy and concentration levels, so why do so many meeting rooms come without air conditioning and windows? In order to keep meeting participants energized and focused, you should always opt for a meeting room with natural daylight and fresh air. Plus, if the meeting room comes with great views, people will already feel excited upon entering the room! Another way to get meeting participants excited could entail riding an elevator through the world’s largest cylindrical aquarium, which you can experience at the stylish Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin.
A food selection to impress and boost your brain power
Do you usually get croissants, sweets or snacks during meetings? Well, however, tasty these treats may be, they don’t always have a positive impact. Eating the right types of food can help boost your concentration and energy levels – as well as overall brain power by up to 20%. So, are you ready to retire the croissants and bring some superfoods to your next meeting. Superfoods, which typically include nuts, berries, oily fish, whole-grain products and some vegetables, are rich
in fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins. At Radisson Blu, we have spent a great deal of time studying the different types of food that are best for your brain. The result? An impressive menu made up of superfoods that are sure to keep you feeling full, alert and efficient. At Radisson Blu, you can also choose between: “Flexitarian,” “Land + Place,” “Wild Sensation,” and “Tasty Mood” menus. All four options have unique flavors and compositions loaded with natural brain food ingredients. Definitely something to look forward to after a long meeting!
How design and technology can improve the quality of your meeting
Nothing drains your creativity faster than sitting in an all-white meeting room filled with the same dull meeting furniture. If you need to do some creative thinking in a meeting, you should look for meeting rooms specifically designed to spark your creativity. At Radisson Blu, we have designed specific Brain Box spaces, which are brightly-colored, break-out rooms that are sure to get you into a creative mood. You are even allowed to draw on the walls in these rooms! Take advantage of our Brain Box at Radisson Blu hotels that offer Experience Meetings, like the impressive Radisson Blu Hotel, Frankfurt. All of the meeting rooms at Radisson Blu hotels feature the latest audiovisual technology and complimentary, high-speed Wi-Fi. At select hotels, you can even find the most innovative technology that will make your meetings feel fun. For example, some meeting spaces feature the DigiChart, a smart board that allows you store notes from the whiteboard directly onto your computer with just one click, and the MultiPad, a 55” touch-pad tablet that can be used for video conferencing, presentations, or as a whiteboard.
To make sure you are comfortable during your meeting or conference at Radisson Blu, all meeting facilities come with ergonomic and comfortable furniture.
Radisson Blu offers the perfect blend of stylish design and innovative technology required for successful business meetings and events. Host it with us, and you will experience what happens when technology and design have been thought into every last detail of your meeting experience!
