Rapid City hotel, the Howard Johnson Inn & Suites reviews tips for choosing a location for business meetings in the Black Hills
Rapid City, S.D, United States., March 9, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) – Throughout the year, many local Rapid City businesses host a variety of meetings for their employees, stakeholders and board members. Many of these meetings take place out of the office as a way to decrease interruption and to increase focus on the topics discussed. One Rapid City hotel sees a larger variety of businesses who request to use one of their three meeting areas and offers advice to those looking for a new and refreshing location.
"When looking for a place to host a business meeting, one must consider multiple factors like catering, time of the day and of course the right day of the week. With so many locations out there, it can be easy to narrow down the top choices if you keep a few things in mind," said Nancy Smith, Directory of Sales for the Howard Johnson Rapid City.
Smith shared a few ideas on how the office meeting planner can find the right fit for their large business meeting.
Central Location: While everyone works within the same office, not everyone lives within the same part of town. Try to choose a location that is somewhat centrally located for all possible attendees to minimize driving time.
Catering: If the meeting is going to last for more than an hour, there needs to be an option for food. Make sure the location chosen has the availability and space to host a catering company. Many catering companies in Rapid City will travel to just about anywhere for an event.
Accommodations: If your business meeting will be hosted for several days and involves out-of-town attendees, consider the accommodations of the hotel. Make sure the hotel can block rooms.
Most importantly Smith urges the company meeting planners to choose a location that will have all of the amenities that will be needed. This saves on planning time and stress during one of the busiest times of the year.
