Ask not for whom the bell chimes. It chimes for thee! Only now it sounds better, carries further, and charms your learners back from the hallways to the classroom with CLASS!

Pleasant, professional way for the host/leader to attract meeting participants back to the meeting/seminar. Also, a respectful way to get their attention. Note: The guest speaker enjoyed using it, too, during his presentation!
Yes, it's expensive, but this is the best money I ever spent. Every time I use it, all of the other professional facilitators want to know where I bought it. This is very solidly constructed and still works perfectly after several years of use. Once you've used the meeting chimes, you will wonder how you ever did a workshop or seminar without them.
Worked really well in a large ball-room setting with a 200 person conference. You could hear it above all the talking during breaks. Pleasant sounding tones, although the highest note is a little flat. May be able to "tune it" by adjusting the screws holding that chime down. Hotel wanted to know where I got it so they could order some of their own.
At some point, most training professionals will end up in a situation where at least some of the attendees outrank the trainer. This often occurs at planning sessions or all-staff meetings, where trainers coordinate or facilitate the event. For experienced trainers this is usually not an issue, but some may find it awkward to ask senior managers to return to the meeting room after a break. This finely-tuned instrument sounds a polite tone that may be used to signal when large meetings begin and/or resume. Similar items are often used in theatres and performance halls, so the overall effect is rather soothing and upscale. I've used this item in both small lobbies and large mezzanines. The user is able to control the volume by controlling how hard a blow is made to the chimes with the included mallet. Possibly the only drawback you'll find is that everyone wants to play with it; the tone becomes a much less effective signal if it is overused!
We tried a less expensive set of "meeting chimes" but the tone of that instrument would make your teeth curl. This elegant set of chimes grabs the attention in a way that is energizing -- not irritating. We can't wait to use it (next week) to begin teaching our members that our educational sessions will start ON TIME and they'd better take their seats!
