Everyone can get sick of looking at the same four walls, especially in the work place. Sometimes a change of scene is the perfect way to spark creativity in colleagues and come up with new ideas. Choosing a venue with a difference, is the perfect way to get your team talking.
European online marketplace, Gaest.com, has just launched in the UK and has teamed up with hosts throughout London to bring the most original, unusual spots for meetings, photo-shoots and parties together in one place.
Founded in the Danish city of Aarhus in October 2015, Gaest.com has quickly grown to become Northern Europe’s largest online community marketplace for discovering, listing and booking unique spaces. Anders Boelskifte Mogensen, co-founder and CEO of Gaest.com, said: “We’re so excited to be able to offer UK users a wide selection of fantastic venues in London. Gaest.com takes the pain out of booking meeting rooms, which by today’s standards is far too difficult. London is full of creative people and we’re confident that our variety of exceptional spaces will give any meeting that kick in the butt they sometimes need to be effective.”
The meeting space can be as important as the meeting itself and with more than 800 venues in London alone on Gaest.com, there is sure to be one to inspire your team. We’ve chosen the top five quirkiest spots to book on the site right now.
