I’m in Chicago for the day to see clients and enjoying how the conference rooms are named for neighborhoods in the city, such as Wrigleyville.
Every Bloomberg office does it a bit differently.
In New York the rooms are named after global cities from London to Hong Kong. In San Francisco its local areas including Alcatraz, Golden Gate and Sonoma.
The Mexico City office conference rooms are named after Aztec and Mayan cities like Chichen Itza and Teotihuacan.
Frankfurt rooms are named after the country’s mountain ranges: Taunus, Odenwald and Spessart.
Paris, as you might expect, gets creative. The rooms are named Puccini, Rossini, Verdi and Bizet. That might be because the office is near the Opera.
Milan is my favorite. The conference rooms are named after writers, though strangely not Italians. Three are named Hemingway, Bukowski and Fitzgerald.
