Meeting Facilities: Meeting Room Set Ups
This is the most versatile style of set-up for groups. It allows all participants to have ample desk space, interaction with the presenter and other participants and the ability for the group to break into smaller groups without leaving the room. Clusters may be round or square tables and can accommodate 6-10 people at each individual table.
Classroom, Herringbone, Chevron
These set-ups are appropriate when the conference is an informational type presentation. The presenters are providing the information, with some dialogue with the audience. Herringbone and Chevron creates a more enclosed type of feel for the presenter and audience, but does require slightly more space than regular classroom style set-up.
This set-up maximizes meeting room space utilization. Theater works well when the audience needs to take minimal notes and/or the presentation is 2 hours or less in length. Theater can also be made in a "herringbone" and "chevron" shape if desired.
Conference, Hollow Square
Both of these set-ups work well for board meetings and small "brainstorming" sessions when the group does not have a designated presenter/leader. They provide plenty of workspace for each person and good communication/visual lines for each participant. Recommend that the size of the group for both of these set-ups is 24 people or less.
This set-up works well with small groups that require conversations between the presenter and audience, as well as conversations between the participants. The presenter is able to move freely between the group for a more intimate feel. This set-up does require more space than other set-ups and is recommended for groups of 24 people or less.
