Creating Meeting Rooms

Meeting Rooms record store information including the dimensions of a room, handicap accessibility, if there are any obstructions that need to be considered when configuring a room, and the venue in which the room is located. Meeting room records also store information about the different types of meeting rooms that can be defined as well as sub-rooms associated with a particular meeting room.
