It may, however, refer to a within-day meeting in a windowless room on-site. The intention is to allow the meeting to focus on the particular task at hand without the participants being distracted by the demands which, if the meeting were held in the workplace, would normally be made on their attention by virtue of their positions. The term derives from the name given to a cheap day return railway ticket after pricing by time of travel was introduced on the British railway network in the 1960s. It is also used in reference to a Football team playing a game away from their home ground, and the fans making the journey to the game refer to it being an 'Awayday' due to the fact they are planning their day around the away Football game.
