Today, progressive companies are slashing the overhead costs of off-site meetings by renting public videoconference rooms. With the opening of Kaleidoscope Videoconferencing’s new videoconferencing room in Columbia, Missouri, your business also can take advantage of the latest video technology. Join the others in the local business community who use our facility to save time and money. Our fast-growing videoconferencing directory allows us to connect you with over 3000 locations across the US and in more than 70 countries.

Videoconferencing instead of traveling can generate significant savings on airfare, hotel and meal costs, ground transportation, and entertainment expenses. Recent figures indicate that a business saves an average of $1,300 per person each time a traveling meeting is converted into a videoconference. The more people who use videoconferencing, the more money saved.

Meeting by video also saves time. Videoconference users avoid flying and driving time, waiting in lines for ticketing and security, and sitting in the terminal waiting for their flights to depart. Companies are also turning to videoconferencing to address employee safety concerns relating to business travel. If you are not yet ready to set up a videoconferencing room at your own business, rent ours today and start saving now!<

Schedule Your Videoconference

Please schedule your videoconference three days in advance if all participating sites are within the U.S. (five days for international videoconferences). This allows time for us to search for available facilities at the other site(s), if necessary, and to conduct a quality assurance test, which tests the connectivity of the participating sites and ensures that all systems are suitable for high quality videoconferencing.

Videoconferencing rates depend on the number of connections, the bandwidth of the connection, the duration of the conference, and the time of day. There is a minimum one-hour charge for room rental, with additional time billed in 15-minute increments. Room rental includes technical support during the conference. Call 573-427-7383 for more information or to make a reservation, or send email to
