Meet Me At SOCO
Meetings are where magic happens
I do creative work and sometimes my home office can just be one giant distraction. So, when I need to do deep work, I book a day pass and a meeting room at SOCO. It’s a really unique combination of inspiring spaces and tons of amenities. I close the door and jump on a whiteboard and it’s off to the races. And the bottomless tea and coffee keep the juices flowing!
We operate globally and have suppliers and partners from all over come in. When they do, we book meetings and workspace at SOCO. The spaces are centrally located, super convenient to downtown amenities and it’s a nice way to show our clients and partners we care.
Every year, when planning time rolls around we always book a few days at SOCO with our coaching clients as a sort of “staycation planning retreat”. The energy, vibe and hospitality really helps me and the entire team get in the right mindset and we always leave energized and ready to tackle what’s next.
I run a creative agency. There’s nothing worse than a crowded, noisy coffee shop when you’re trying to connect with and close a new client. When I want to be a big girl professional, I book those meetings at SOCO.
We all work in the field a lot so we don’t see each other much. Keeping the team connected and growing our culture are important, so we meet at SOCO in person every month to make sure the human connection stays front and center in our culture.

Can I modify my booking?
Of course! You can modify your booking date, time, duration, or select some add-on amenities, but you will have to do that by reaching out to one of our team members. You can reach Whitney Balish at email@example.com or 803-994-9257.
What do I do if my meeting is running long/late?
You have a few options here, all of which require you to communicate this with one of our hospitality team members. We build 15 minutes of extra time into the start and end time of every booking to allow for setup and close out. So, don’t stress if you’re running just a little late. If your meeting delay will exceed 15 minutes, you’ll need to talk with a team member to see if the room is available and we can add another block of time onto your meeting.
What can I do to make my meeting really special?
You’ve already taken the first step by booking a meeting at SOCO. The vibe and ambiance should help you set the tone. But, talk to our team or check out some other ways that we can enhance your experience with food and beverage add-ons, day passes or even remote entry for your team members. In addition, if you need a fun place for lunch, dinner or post meeting drinks, our team LOVES providing local recommendations to round out your experience.
What do I do if I need help with tech or equipment?
Remember that “hospitality” thing we were talking about? A team member will be onsite for the full duration of your meeting. Should you have any questions or technical issues, they’ll be available to help address them. We also STRONGLY encourage you to arrive early and test out the equipment in your room like a good Boy/Girl Scout.
