Rethinking How We Design Meeting Spaces

By: Tom Stulberg, President, Loungeworks Inc. Nothing about the way we currently plan meetings makes it easy to create compelling spaces that stimulate and engage delegates. The basic tool set: folding tables and stacking chairs, remains the dominant option meeting planners consider when designing the spaces in which their meetings will take place.
