Meeting Rooms

All ORA employees have the ability to schedule a meeting in any of the rooms on the garden level and first floor.

  • B2, B38, 101,111, 118, 143 and 156

As the demand for conference rooms is high, please select the meeting room based on the number of people in your meeting, rather than location of the meeting room. For example, if six or less people need to meet, please consider using the smaller rooms (111 and 118) rather than tie up the larger rooms.
