When it comes to running a small business, there are always going to be occasions where you need to arrange meetings and conferences. When it comes to finding the best meeting venue Sheffield has to offer, 2020 hasn’t exactly made it easy on business owners and sole traders. The OEC, however, is always ready to offer safe, well-equipped meeting rooms Sheffield can be proud of.
As a bespoke conferencing and events centre, the OEC has a range of suites for different group sizes, with social distancing considerations easily accommodated. The OEC conferencing technology, software and support available, is second-to-none. This year, we’ve also made our industry-leading technology available for virtual conferences.
Why might the OEC offer you the best meeting venue Sheffield has to offer? Let’s take a quick look at what you can expect from our meeting and conferencing services as we head into 2021.
Roomy and Flexible Meeting Venue Sheffield
We’ve always been pleased to offer an incredible amount of elbow room for meetings and conferences. The OEC was designed with multiple purposes in mind, but business and conferencing support has always been at the top of our agenda. We offer a range of fantastic meeting suites, complete with air conditioning and all the technical support you’ll need to make speeches, offer presentations, and answer questions from delegates.
Before the pandemic, OEC meeting rooms (such as our landmark Rivelin Suite) could welcome up to 500 guests, comfortably, in one space. Now the restrictions are in force, did you know that we also have VIP boxes and spaces for as few as ten guests should you have a small meeting of delegates in mind? In light of changes that the coronavirus pandemic has brought about, we are now making these spaces socially safe for you and your guests to meet in. We’re ensuring, in line with government recommendations, that our spaces are socially distant and are well ventilated.
Not only is the space suitable for socially distanced meetings and conferences, but we have also adapted our food and beverage options to cater for minimal contact. You can now opt for our extensive menu of delicious bowl food – all freshly made on-site, by our talented catering team. The OEC can also offer other plated meal options such as sandwiches, of course!
We’re also pleased to bring virtual conferencing opportunities to businesses in our region. One of the best reasons to choose a conference room hire for Sheffield and beyond is for the technology you receive along with space. At the OEC, top of the line HD video and 4K displays arrive as standard. We’ve also made a few changes this year to help facilitate at-home conferencing, particularly as the boom in home working in 2020 has been truly monumental!
We provide a range of hardware for physical conference attendees to help welcome virtual guests from afar as well. We can provide speedy feed switching technology and AV equipment to help people connect near and far so that staying at home while taking part in important conferences and meetings is made all the easier. Why should anyone who needs to stay at home ever miss out on an important meeting or conference again?
Along with our brilliant in-house conferencing hardware and software, we’re thrilled to be able to bring socially distant attendees to the same platform. We’re confident that a demand for virtual conferencing will continue far beyond the pandemic, which is why we’ve invested plenty of time and effort into bringing the best technology to the table.
