The Barbican will launch an online booking tool live on 14 July, allowing meeting planners to book space and catering for its Frobisher Boardroom.
The system allows meetings to be booked up until 3pm the day before through a secure system that also takes payment.
Recently refurbished, the Boardroom is fully equipped with an 80” screen, a Barco clickshare system which allows up to four simultaneous presentations, Skype facilities, dedicated Wi-Fi network and all of the usual AV facilities required by the event planner.
“The Frobisher Boardroom was the perfect space to trial this new system,” says the Barbican’s Head of Event Management, Lee Dobson. “It is primarily used by companies in the City, looking for a private space away from the office, and frequently these bookings are made as late as the morning of the actual meeting. This system links directly to our live venue diary, allowing clients to instantly see availability and book space quickly and with ease.”
The system also allows clients to select from a range of catering packages complementing the in-room Nespresso coffee machine that is included within the venue hire fee, providing a one stop environment.
Dobson adds: “We are always investigating ways to better serve our clients and respond to their ever-changing needs. This system does exactly that, whilst keeping the Barbican at the forefront of venue service levels – all made possible through creative use of technology.”
Barbican is Europe’s largest combined conference and arts venue. Located in The City of London, it is capable of holding meetings from 10-2,000 delegates in its concert hall, theatres, conference suites and boardrooms.
