When you’re planning an in-person event how do you approach the seating plan? It’s a task that has a bigger effect on your conference or event than you realise. Seating arrangements can impact how the speakers communicate with attendees and how attendees interact with each other. This can have a knock-on effect on engagement, motivation and focus, three key elements for a successful event.

Just like a classroom, the layout of the room and the seating plan should match the topic and style of your event. Figure out what type of event you’re hosting which will in turn help you determine the seating plan that best suits.

It’s important to have a configuration that can be flexible to accommodate event variety.
