Conference room meetings today are no longer attended only by those who are physically present at the venue at the time of the meetings and are no longer conducted only with the help of printed materials. Modern technology has transformed the way we think and conduct meetings – today, most meetings are attended by coworkers who are thousands of miles away from the actual conference room and technology also makes it possible to have collaborative meetings. Here are some of the tech features that are likely to be used in every meeting room in the future:
- Video conferencing options – the modern conference room audio video solutions that allow everyone on both ends of the conference call to see everyone else encourage everyone to contribute their own input and improves the efficiency of the communication process, therefore they are increasingly used by small and large companies alike;
- Solid internet connection – this is more of a requirement than a trend nowadays and available in most conference rooms already;
- Interactive whiteboards – the device became popular as a teaching instrument, but it is nowadays increasingly used by companies to make sure the drafts and drawings sketched during meetings are instantly recorded and made available in a digital format suitable for being distributed.
