Important: On-site policies are subject to change. For full policy information, refer to our Global IBX Policies.

For no cost, you can reserve a conference room to conduct business at an Equinix IBX location.

To schedule a conference room:

  1. From the Orders and Tickets menu in the Customer Portal, select Conference Room.

  2. On the Conference Room screen, under Location, select the IBX data center where you want to host a meeting.

    Once you select a location, the screen displays the location details (including the street address, hours of operation, and a link to a map of the surrounding area).

  3. Under Conference Room Details, select the date for your meeting (using the IBX's local time zone).

  4. Click View All Rooms to see the rooms available at the IBX, and the seating capacity for each room.

    A 24-hour timeline shows the available time slots that day (available times are shown in white; unavailable times are shown in gray). The room capacity is shown below the timeline.

  5. On the Conference Room Availability window:

    1. Select a room.

    2. On the timeline, click the time slot for your meeting. Your selected time is shown in blue.

    3. Click Select.

  6. Under Select a Host, you are the meeting host by default. Optionally, you can select a different user as the host (by searching for their name or email address, or using the User Directory).

  7. Under Attendees, add everyone who will attend the meeting (minimum=1, maximum=room capacity).

    Important: All attendees must show a government-issued photo ID to enter an IBX. For more information, see Visiting an IBX.
