Room Styles

 

1. THEATRE STYLE
With its optimum use of space this layout is ideally suited for presentations from 20 – 240 people. Visual aids such as an OHP, flipchart or screen can be set up at the front of the room next to the speaker’s desk. For power point presentations we can acquire an LCD projector at a small fee to the client. Microphones or hearing loops can also be incorporated if needed.
 

2. U-SHAPED STYLE
A popular arrangement for training programmes or presentations not best suited for huge amounts of people 40-50 max. It allows the speaker to interact with the delegates ‘up close & personal’. Again various visual aids can be placed at the front of the room to assist the speaker.
 

3. CLASSROOM STYLE
The ideal seating plan for formal working meetings. This set up ensures that all eyes are at the speaker; it also gives delegates plenty working space.
 

4. HOLLOW SQUARE
Most suited for formal discussions where no video or visual aids are required as not every one would be able to view at the same time. Ideal for delegates as it allows great interaction with on another; other being able to throw ideas back and forth easily. Good for informal ‘over dinner meetings’ too.

5. BOARDROOM STYLE
As above, better for formal “members of the board” style meetings hence the name. The directors can sit at the far end and listen to all ideas & points and still be able to view any diagrams that can be presented from the other end.
 

6. OVAL or ROUND
Suited for small dinner parties or informal conferences. Best suited where visual aids don’t need to be used as not all delegates will be able to see at the same time.
 

7. BANQUETING
Ideal for large numbers 150+ and creates a pleasant social atmosphere. Great for formal or informal dinner parties or weddings.
 

8. CABARET STYLE
Ideal for formal lunches and dinners or conferences where there is a guest speaker who will be the centre of attention. Again ideal for presentations where visual displays are required. Guests will be ensured plenty of room for paper work on the large tables.
 

9. INFORMAL STYLE
Very Popular arrangement for cocktail parties or informal dinner parties because of its flexible arrangement.
