Bartering Services with Miroma

The concept of bartering was formed currency was developed and barter services have gone from strength to strength ever since western economies formed a system of exchanging goods back in the 1830s. Organisations offering barter services are on the increase thanks to the downturn in the economy. Being able to trade goods and services are ideal for cash strapped consumers. The range of organisations offering barter services can be from small enterprises to multinational companies. Equally, the diversity of the goods being offered is huge. According to an article in the national press, some parts of Greece and Spain are so short of cash that barter services are becoming the norm. An unstable currency is another reason that barter services are in demand. The Swiss WIR bank was formed in 1934 as a direct result of the stock market crash of 1929 and formed the first exchange system through the financial markets. The idea of bartering never really went away, but in times of austerity, they are more popular than ever.

Anything can be bartered – from baby clothes to plumbing services to high value advertising and media services carried out by corporate bartering systems. The main problem is finding a comparative value and the parties concerned both requiring the products and services at the same time. Barter services can work on trade credits which can be spent as and when required. There are a number of web sites now offering this service. Users can sign up on line and offer their goods for barter. In the USA there is even an International Reciprocal Trade Association (IRTA) which offers members everything from computers to hotel accommodation to international trade. Estimates from the IRTA are that over 450,000 businesses took part in some kind of barter activities in 2010. Barter services are really taken seriously and you may be able to get some great deals. There is often a charge for joining networks of like minded people, but you will be able to make your own decision as to whether this would be worth your while.

Other downsides of bartering are that some goods are not divisible. A person may want another person’s goods but the goods he has available may be much more valuable that the one he wants to trade for. Some goods may not be suitable for barter. Perishable goods come into this category as there is a difficult in storing them and they have a short shelf life. The economists have come up with many clever ways to offer barter services and get round some of these problems.

The main advantages of barter services are that actual money does not change hands and poor people cannot afford to store their assets in monetary form if there is hyperinflation. Both of these benefits help businesses to continue, even in an economic crisis. Some people think that cash can be taken out of the system altogether and the economy going back to barter services. Perhaps that would be taking things too far!

Finding a Conference Venue in London

Are you stuck in a rut and finding yourself booking the same old conference venue time and time again? If the answer is yes then now is the time to broaden your horizons and think outside the box!

Researching and booking a London Conference Venue can be a lot of fun and you can be sure that the delegates that are attending will appreciate a venue that is a little more quirky and unusual.

If you are not sure what type of London Conference Venue you are looking to book then a good place to find some inspiration is to look at what London specifically has to offer? For example it has a lot of famous landmarks so trying to source a venue that incorporates one or several of these could work well.

A venue of a floating nature could be one such option. There are a number of different vessels moored in the city of London with many of them moored amongst some of the city’s most famous landmarks. These venues also come with the added benefit of some spectacular panoramic city views.

Opting for an offshore London Conference Venue is becoming increasingly popular as not only is it more unusual than some of the venues that can be found on dry land it is also very flexible as it offers a range of indoor and outdoor spaces. In addition due to the structure itself they tend to have a variety of different size rooms available so whether you are organising a conference for a large number of delegates or just a handful there is likely to be a room that will meet your requirements.

Once you have settled on your venue of choice and have decided to proceed with the booking you will be appointed someone from the conference and events team to work alongside you to ensure that everything runs smoothly from start to finish.

They will help you to decide which room will work best based on the number of delegates that you have attending and how best to lay it out. They will also discuss with you whether you would like a separate registration area for when your delegates arrive and whether or not you require any separate break out areas. In addition to this they will also provide any audio visual equipment and full wireless and broadband internet connections. They can even provide corporate colour schemes, branding and customised stationary should you require. Finally they will discuss the various catering options that they are able to offer. In addition to tea and coffee services being provided as standard throughout the day you will be able to choose from a working buffet lunch, a sit down meal or you could quite literally push the boat out and have a BBQ on one of the open air decks!

One thing you can be assured of is that booking this type of London Conference Venue will add that little something extra to your event!
