Need Names For Conference Rooms
Posted by Anonymous on

My company is holding a contest to name our conference rooms. We are in the health care field headquartered in Buffalo New York. Looking for direction or ideas, thanks!

You write "we are in the health care field..."
Use what you do -- or what your products do -- to name the rooms.

Well, let's see...
You could name them after diseases (Yuk!)
Or after people responsible for medical breakthroughs.
Or after colors, or months, or major clients, or body parts (careful there!), or how about holding a contest among your people...have each submit names for each room, with the individual winners each getting something of nominal value like a gift card, or a free lunch at a local eatery.

How many rooms are there? What does you company do? What is its name? It will be easier to for us to help with some of this info.
Perhaps the founder's names would work.

Other ideas: bones, major muscles, regions of the brain, major parks (Central Park, Golden Gate Park, etc.)

Greek Gods, e.g. Achilles, Apollo, Hypocrites
Major Cities, e.g. Tokyo, Moscow, LA
Gemstones, e.g. Ruby, Diamond, Topaz

Figures on US currency - Washington, Lincoln, Franklin, etc.
Major HMOs - Anthem, United Health Care, etc. assuming you aren't an HMO. Maybe they might even sponsor them?

"The Aorta", or "central nervous system".
Example in use: "Jim, I will meet you in the Aorta at 7 pm sharp!"

The Buffalo area has a great history of names ---- Lackawana, Tonawanda, Canisus, etc. How about some of the counties you may serve.....Genesee, Orleans, Niagara etc.
Do you want to go sports themed? Name a room after some of the more famous Buffalo Bills?
There's the presidential angle as well.... Fillmore and Grover Cleveland, and McKinley all have ties to the area, right?
What about colleges --- Canisus, Niagara University, etc?

I am closing this question since there has been no activity in 10 days.
Thanks for participating!
