The article presents information on the high-tech board rooms and meeting facilities provided by the hotels now-a-days. The hotels are investing a great deal of money in developing rooms with latest technologies and facilities. Not only are the rooms being equipped with expensive millwork, granite and wood conference tables and leather chairs, but they are also investing a considerable amount of money in high-tech audio visual equipment that is typically found in large corporate facilities. Boardrooms are being designed with built-in video conferencing systems that are integrated with the audio conferencing and sound systems.
