Whether our DMCs are hosting a workshop or a gala event, one of the first things on their mind is hunting for ever-more innovative ways to arrange the seating that will speak both to the eyes and the minds of the guests. Here we highlight a few unique options according to the event style.
1 – Informal vibe: Lounge Style
As the name implies, it is ideal for an informal, flowy event. Because seating is usually quite low, maximum visibility is given to décor. The causal vibe is perfect for a free flowing crowd and the option to stand at the high tables or sit in the cozy lounge couches and chairs makes it ideal for a crowd who requires options.
2 – Team building exercises : Pod Seating
This arrangement is perfect to ensure that a) every participant is able to visualize the presentation and b) breakout groups can work on an exercise together, brainstorm, etc. It is a much more intimate setting than traditional meeting arrangements. It also allows room for laptops and meals if the event requires it.
3 – Plenary Sessions : Mix and Match
Plenary sessions can often be such a mixed bag of presentations, some more interactive than others. Because of this, we love the idea of having various seating options available to the guests, to offer something a bit different for each session. Here for example guests have the option to fully partake in the session at the theater seating area, breakway into groups at the round tables, or quietly chat on the high tables near the back.
