Planning Tips For Corporate Holiday Parties & Events


It’s the holiday party time of year again!

As you eagerly plan your corporate holiday parties and events, we have gathered our top seating and floorplan tips to help you with the process!

Choose Your Seating Style

Corporate holiday parties and events often opt for a laid-back vibe. Food is typically served buffet style with passed hor d’oeuvres and unique food stations. To work with this trend, arrange your floorplan with traditional tables but don’t assign guests to tables. Allow guests to mingle and choose their own seats as they work the room and seek out their food choices.

If you want to take the laid-back vibe a step further, consider lounge furniture with comfy couches and high top tables with bar stools in place of the traditional seating styles.

Bonus tip: Remember to keep table centerpieces at a height that allows conversation to flow between guests. To avoid obstructing sight lines, make use of AllSeated’s table builder  as you work on your floorplans and seating.


Remember The Floorplan Extras

As you arrange your floorplan, remember to include room for the dance floor and entertainment spots in the layout. If having a guest speaker, consider where the speaker will be positioned in relation to your seating to ensure sight lines are visible. You want to avoid obstructions in viewing, if possible!
