  • Are video panels, touchscreens or other technology used effectively?
  • How easily could the center accommodate new technology or a different way of doing things?

Ideas

Consider taking cues from commercial venues – such as convention centers, conference hotels, and airports – that must inform newcomers quickly and clearly to be survive.  How do they tell people about offerings, start times and other opportunities with only as much interaction as their customer desires?

Room x Room posts are brief examinations of the nature, purpose and potential of typical spaces used in ministry. The intent is to help users see and consider how each component contributes to (or hinders) the ministry it serves.
