As more offices are moving towards open floor plans and less conference rooms, companies are strategically creating small spaces as huddle rooms to empower their teams to collaborate. Huddle rooms work better than the traditional conference room, because it fosters collaboration and interaction in a small intimate space, that allows teams of up to 5 people to meet quickly and easily.
In order for huddle rooms to be effective, it needs to have the right equipment that does not require an AV/technician to operate and not necessarily be cluttered with lots of equipment.

- TV / Giant Touchscreen
- Whiteboard (regular or interactive)
- Web camera or tablet (for video conferencing)
- Small table
- Small sofa / chairs (optional)
