“What’s in a name?” Unlike Juliet’s take on them, there’s a lot to unpack from a name. Conference room names are no different. When named well, meeting rooms can help provide inspiration, navigation, and branding. So we studied tens of thousands of room names using Robin to see what’s trending. Stay in touch with this series to help label your next office.
Along with the furniture and tech in your office, there are subtle ways the workplace can inspire you day to day.
Look no further than funny conference room names. Yup, that strange name you click in your conference room booking system to check availability. Conference room naming might seem like a small office design detail, but it says a lot about a company’s culture. Even more, it shows how much a company cares about fostering a culture that inspires, motivates, and entertains.
Imagine this: you’re about to schedule and invite colleagues to a meeting for tomorrow. There’s one last thing you need to choose before you hit send: the room. You look at your options and notice “Nicolas’s Cage” is available. So you obviously choose that one.
You’re instantly in a better mood, wondering what a meeting with Nicolas Cage would actually look like. Now you’re looking forward to tomorrow. That was intentional.
Scheduling meetings just got a whole lot more attractive.
2. "Nicolas' Cage"
If it’s anything like his movie roles, meetings in this room end in a screaming match, and in some cases, death.
3. “Speakeasy” aka “Secret Conference Room”
Not everyone will find their way to this meeting room but for those who do, congratulations. You’ve made it.
4. “Bikini Bottom”
The meeting room for when you and your colleagues are drowning in work and just need a place to dance (see below).
5. “Wine & Cheese Room”
When you need a room to shmooze with new or potential clients, bring them here. They’re bound to leave happy.
6. “Prosciutto Cream Cheese Apple (PCCA)”
Yes to all of it.
7. “Banana Puddin’”
Must close every meeting with "the proof is in the pudding".
8. “Tester mctesterson”
No relation to Boaty McBoatface.
9. “Nick Papagiorgio's Penthouse”
"Your usual meeting room, Mr. Papagiorgio?"
10. “You Are Here.”
You’ll know you’re in the right place once you get there.
And one for good luck:
11. “Jazz Hands”
Jazz Hands is the perfect room to relocate to when you’re falling asleep in a meeting and need some pizazz.
There you have it, folks. We hope this added some comic relief to your workday and maybe even inspired you to rename some of your own meeting rooms. Have a room name that can top these? @ us on Twitter.
