The board room is the centre of strategic decision-making in a room where discussion and collaboration propel companies toward success. Meetings are now held at different locations and on different platforms. A well-equipped boardroom is essential to support effective communication via face-toface or digital channels. In this article, we discuss the essential elements that every modern boardroom needs to have to ensure maximum collaboration and productive discussions.

The classic boardroom style with a large central table and chairs around it, encourages direct communication between participants and promotes equality. This is the meeting layout you’ve seen in movies and sitcoms, and it’s ideal for formal discussions that require authoritative voices and direct interaction. This layout is also perfect for meetings with remote participation, as it’s easy for participants to participate in virtual discussions while keeping each other up-to-date on developments.

Another variation on the classic boardroom design is the hollow square layout for meetings. This design is reminiscent of classroom arrangements but without the rows of tables and desks separating participants. This is ideal for groups of 10-20 because it allows the facilitator to move between four tables to facilitate discussion or to demonstrate a concept.

The U-shaped style meeting room can accommodate up 25 people. This layout is similar to a boardroom but it includes tables that can be used as a podium to accommodate speakers. This layout is ideal for meetings that focus on workshops and presentations as it allows plenty of space for speakers and participants to interact with each other.
