MEETING ROOM The best way to layout a meeting room is dependant on a number of factors including:  The space available  The size of the audience  The level of activity and interaction required There are 6 main styles which are described below.

Theatre Style  Theatre style seating allows the most people for a given size of room. This is fine for an audience who will be listening to presentations and do not need to make many notes or interact with each other.  For any group larger than 100, you need an aisle, plus side access.

Classroom style   Classroom style requires about three times as much space per person as theatre style but provides everyone with somewhere to rest their papers and equipment. It also allows refreshments to be provided on the tables. This style is good for audiences who may need to take notes or work individually during the presentation(s) but who do not need to interact with each other.

Conference/Boardroom Style  Good for participatory meetings of 22 people maximum.  A rectangular or oval table set up with chairs around all sides and ends. Boardroom style works well if the group is reasonably small and will spend most of the time talking to each other or listening to one or two speakers who are not using a screen. Used for This table layout is often used for Board of Directors meetings, committee meetings, or discussion groups.

U-Shape/horseshoe style The Horseshoe is similar to the Boardroom Style except that it allows more people to participate. It is slightly better than an ordinary boardroom layout for giving presentations, which rely on being able to see the projector screen. Used for  The horse-shoe layout is often preferred by trainers . This layout style is often used for Board of Directors meetings, committee meetings, or discussion groups where there is a speaker, audio-visual presentation etc.

Hollow Design Square conference tables arranged in a square or rectangle or even octagon, leaving the center open. Chairs are placed around the outside of the tables. Best usage: Larger meetings of 12 to 30 people, at which group interaction among attendees is important and meetings when the event does not have a designated leader or presenter. Useful layout design that provides workspace for each person and good communication and visual lines for each person.

Hexagon Shape  Hexagon shape is a desirable variation of the hollow square configuration because it dramatically improves eye-to-eye contact for small groups where interaction is a factor.

Banquet Rounds A group of round tables, each seating 6-10 people usually, set to facilitate serving food, usually in a hexagonal or square design. Best usage: Banquet-style is the setup plan of choice for most meal functions. In addition, it is also useful for small business meetings and breakouts or groups involving group interaction and/or note taking.
