What Is An Abandoned Meeting?

Abandoned, No-show or Ghost meetings are gatherings scheduled by coworkers in meeting rooms, that go completely unattended. When people do not schedule meetings properly or decide not to show up (physically) it can create negative workplace behavior, and a waste of available meeting spaces, it could potentially be expensive, and nonetheless  very harmful for your workplace culture.

An abandoned meeting can also occur due to the lack of a meeting management system, when the meeting reservation is canceled or the location of the meeting changes, but the meeting calendar is not updated. Advances meeting management solutions provide the option te release meeting rooms at a set time interval, to realese meeting space for people that really need it. Resulting in better utilisation of your workspace.
