Finding the Right Venue for Your Event

Events PlaceOrganizing a fundraising event for a charity or nonprofit that you support is great, but you have to be aware that it is not as easy as it seems. It takes careful planning to gather the people and support you need for your cause. You should also factor in the venue if it can accommodate the number of people you want to come and whether its seating arrangement suits your event.
Here are the possible seating arrangements you could find in the different venues according to seating professionals Preferred Seating.

1. Theater

The simplest seating style, the chairs are aligned in consecutive rows. They all face front towards a central area, achieving maximum seating capacity. This is ideal for shows, conferences, product launches, and general meetings.
However, audience members might find it difficult to enter or exit. Also, if your event requires note taking, there are no provisions for such conditions.

2. Classroom

The seats are arranged in the style of a lecture hall or school auditorium, with chairs and tables aligned in straight rows. This kind of seating allows for note taking on notebooks and laptops. This is ideal for a lecture, a general meeting, conference, or even a product launch.
The addition of trestle tables would limit seating capacity, and the arrangement of the seats would also make it difficult for most people to enter or exit the area.

3. Herringbone

This is similar to the classroom style, but the seats are angled inwards.  In some venues, this arrangement allows the front part of the stage to move further into the audience. This pattern could include trestle tables or follow the theater style.

In some venues, the seating capacity is limited as this pattern requires larger aisles for proper movement and entrance/exit. This arrangement is ideal for lectures, training, and conferences.

Planning an event is a complicated business, but it only needs some planning to make sure that you could seat all of your guests. Contact the right people who could help you arrange the right seating arrangement for the right venue and make your event a success
