Most interesting names of big company meeting rooms

Stand out from "cubicle" organisations and express your corporate culture through your meeting room names. Instead of boring, hard-to-remember numbers designating your rooms ("Was it 218 or 318?"), meeting somewhere like the Bat Cave would be much easier to picture. And if people from the press are coming to you for a "tour", such a name would be a source of some great stories.

Moo.com prints corporate materials and so their meeting rooms are named after printing colours. Their meetings take place in Magenta, CMYK, White and Yellow.

 

MOZ loves Star Wars and comic books

Meeting room names:

  • Batcave

  • Death Star

  • Hall of Justice

  • Mos Eisley Cantina

  • Spider Skull Island

  • Thunderdome

Moz’s names for its meeting rooms come from favourite movies and comics. For example, "Death Star" is the space station and superweapon from Star Wars. Another reference to Star Wars is the "Mos Eisley Cantina", the bar located in a pirate town on the planet Tatooine. "Hall of Justice" comes from the fictional world of DC Universe and is located in Metropolis. The funniest name for us is Moz founder and CEO Rand Fishkin’s own title: "The Wizard of Moz".

FourSquare has meeting rooms like their badges. Every room is designed in the style of a particular badge. For example, the Socialite badge has an interior furnished like a nightclub. The Photogenic badge you get from Foursqure for visiting their photo machines is furnished with antique cameras. Great concept, excellent design.

If you want to recap the names of these places from the Game of Thrones, please wait for the next part of the series to air. Or, just look at a map of Westeros.

FaceBook in Palo Alto is viral

Meeting room names:

  • Charlie bit me!!!

  • Series of Tubes

  • United Nations of Social Media

  • We did not start the Firefox

  • Puff, the magic drag-n-drop

The names used at Facebook’s California HQ were elected in a vote by approximately 2000 campus employees. Many titles mix two themes, song titles and computer terms. For example, "We didn't start the firefox" is derived from Billy Joel's hit We Didn’t Start the Fire. Similarly, Puff, the Magic Dragon was a popular 1960s song and the meeting room name "Puff, the magic drag-n-drop" was derived from it. One conference room is called “Charlie bit me!!!”, the name of a cult 2007 YouTube video. Facebook’s International Department is called the United Nations of Social Media.  Welcome to Facebook, welcome to the United Nations of Social Media:
