Table Layouts

Theatre

Theatre seating is perfect choice if there is entertainment or someone speaking at your event. The seating layout reflects the seating found in a theatre or cinema with the chairs in rows facing forward.

Classroom

Classroom is a fantastic layout choice if you are looking for furniture for a conference or seminar where guests need to be forward facing but require the use of a table for either note-taking, refreshments or laptops.

Herringbone

Herringbone is very similar to Classroom seating, but the chairs and tables are slightly on an angle. A great choice if there needs to be interaction between the delegates in the room but they still need to be forward facing and require the use of a table for either note-taking, refreshments or laptops.

Horse Shoe

Very similar to U shaped the horse shoe layout gives a great area for speakers to interact with the audience. The horseshoe doesn’t include tables so is perfect for either entertainment or seminars where there is no need for notetaking.
