How many people can we squeeze in here...?

For every event, the big question is where does the meeting room or banquet hall max out, and with which set up.  Can we fit more if we use smaller tables? Rounds or rectangle? Classroom or crescent? 

Well we have a tool for you, the dynamic Capacity Tool located under the Bonjour Events tool section.

By selecting the top box you can select the seating style, then select box on the right to enter the square footage of your room.  Hit enter and see instantly how many you can seat.  Change the "seating style" at the top and click it again - new results.  I love it. Hope you do too.

Wow! This is a great article. The different set-ups being shown in the pictures are great ideas on how to maximize the space of the venue. Event planners should consider how spacious the room or banquet is. He must also have a raft estimation of the number of attendees to be able to decide on what set up to use. Creativity is a must!

Wow! These is such an insightful post! Thank you for sharing some brilliant ideas on seating plans to maximize space during events. Truly, I would say that one of the problems encountered by event planners in organizing events is the physical and aesthetic arrangements. When we choose the venue we must also consider the space and the number of attendees so we may be able to choose the appropriate arrangement in order not to have clutter.
