Banquet

Tables pushed together to form rows, with aisles left in between the rows and chairs set up on both sides of the rectangular tables. This setup is most useful for dining and maximizes the room’s space.

Conference

Tables pushed completely together in a square with no space left in the middle; chairs are arranged on the perimeter of the tables. This set up is ideal for a conference, meeting, or conference call where individuals need to be in closer proximity.

Herringbone

Tables angled in towards a head speaker table with 5 chairs arranged around each table. This setup is ideal for a presentation, as the speaker is easily visible to the audience.

Lecture

Chairs arranged in rows according to the number of audience members. This setup is ideal for a lecture, speech, or movie presentation when tables are not needed. Allows for the most efficient use of the room space.

Square

Tables arranged in a square shape with space in the middle and chairs situated evenly around the perimeter. Ideal for larger meetings where a conference setup would be less efficient.

U-Shape

Tables arranged in u-shape to face a head table with chairs situated on the outer perimeter. Ideal for a conference or meeting with a head speaker, but allows for discussion between audience members.

Classroom

Tables arranged in rows with space in between each table; 2-3 chairs situated on one side of the table, facing a speaker or presenter. Ideal for a presentation where the audience does not need to interact with one another. Less efficient than a herringbone setup.

Rounds

Round tables with between 6 -8 people at each table.

Half Rounds

Half of a round table with chairs around the arc of the table

Crescent Rounds

Full round table, with chairs set to face forward only.  No chairs are set on the side towards the speaker/presentation.
