Top 6 Consumers of Tampa Meeting Rooms and Conference Space
Who Needs Tampa Meeting Rooms?
Believe it or not, the need for on-demand conference space is a very real issue for many professionals. All sorts of industries need access to meeting rooms by the hour or day. Whether it’s due to the transient nature of your work or your office does not have the space or appropriate environment, you may find yourself needing an alternative venue to meet.
Here are the top six consumers of meeting rooms that we have seen at our location in downtown Tampa:
Court reporting services are the largest consumers of meeting rooms and conference space, nationwide. Nowadays, court reporting services largely rely on independent contractors. This cuts down on the need for physical office space, but it creates the issue of providing an arbitrary meeting location. Many of our bookings come from court reporters or legal services groups who need a convenient venue for legal proceedings between parties.
If you’re scheduling, you will need to find a location that is both accessible and neutral for both parties. Typically, an ideal venue should be a central to both parties and close to the courthouse.
Real Estate Professionals
We have a lot of real estate professionals using our meeting rooms. If you’re a broker or agent, you know that sometimes, meeting for a closing or to discuss a property with a client is easier said than done. Maybe you’re meeting clients in an unfamiliar area or maybe you’re an independent broker without adequate meeting space. Either way, you’ll need a place to meet that’s both professional and confidential.
Financial service professionals have demonstrated a consistent need for on-demand meeting rooms. We have seen many professionals working either independently or with a small firm come in to use our conference space.
In downtown Tampa especially, where financial services are one of the major economic drivers, we have seen a lot of conference rentals among financial professionals.
Regional sales teams are another frequent user of our Tampa meeting rooms. As a company expands its reach into the Tampa Bay market, it needs to establish contact with its customer base.
As part of a regional sales team, you may not have offices, but you still need to be able to meet with clients or hold sales meetings.
Small Business Owners
If you’re a small business owner, one of your main concerns is keeping a low overhead. The biggest ways to cut small business costs is by forgoing an office lease. While this may streamline your operating costs, meeting with clients and associates can become a problem.
Small business owners rely on concepts like shared work space and short term offices as well as hourly meeting rooms to establish a business presence and keep costs down.
Independent Contractors/1099 Workers
Independent contractors make up a huge part of overall consumers of our Tampa meeting rooms. Not only do they encompass all the previous professional fields listed, but can also be anything from journalists to software developers.
