Providing video conferencing facilities since 2005, Omnia can book and set up a Video Conferencing calls within a few minutes, and through its global network can set up both ends of the call. With a support team on hand, and onsite refreshment facilities; businesses are wondering whey they bothered with the cost of flights in the first place!

Video conferencing is not used widely enough and we are only too happy to help those having difficulties in this current situation.”

  1. Yeah I heard lots of companies cashed in on the air crisis. Someone I know paid £8,500 for a meeting room for half a day because he was stuck abroad and had a very important meeting. I know another person who paid £2000 for a cab from Belgium to London. That is crazy money.
