physical distancing

 

Allseated Physical Distance Tool

 

Allseated has launched a revolutionary new technology that enables the creation of social distance floorplans. This physical distance tool for event floorplans, which was featured on NBC News NOW, allows planners, venues, and other event stakeholders to plan event layouts incorporating new social-distancing guidelines, and dynamically ascertain new room capacities, ingress and egress, and foodservice protocols while ensuring the safety of event guests and staff as paramount.

  • Give clients confidence by designing floorplans with guest and staff safety at the forefront
  • Create layouts to meet distancing guidelines to run a safe distance event.
  • Visualize the event floorplan with distancing in place.

The Physical Distance Tool was recently featured during a segment with NBC News NOW to discuss how Allseated’s event technology is assisting wedding venues, planners, and clients open back up and get back to planning events safely.

 

Event & Wedding Seating Chart Tool

 

Once RSVP’s are received and event floorplan layout is created, it’s easy to create the event’s seating chart using Allseated. The seating tab within your event provides you with access to your floorplans and guest list. Seat guests within the floorplan layout by selecting guests from the guest list and placing them at the desired tables. It’s simple and efficient to select a guest, then click on a specific table in the floorplan, to easily seat the guest. When creating your event or wedding table seating chart, you may wish to seat guests at specific seats at specific tables. Allseated offers you the option to do this by first placing them at a table, clicking that table, and assigning the guest to their specific seat.

 

 

3D Room Layout Tool

 

A major benefit to designing wedding floorplans online using Allseated’s 3D floorplan software is the ability to view floorplans in 2D and 3D. At any time during the online floorplan design process, easily, it’s easy to switch from 2D viewing to 3D viewing to take a virtual walkthrough of the layout. The 3D viewing options include Bird’s Eye viewing o which allows you to see your event floorplan in 3D from an above view. It’s also possible to virtually walk through the online floorplan layout in 3D via 1st Person View as if you were taking a virtual walkthrough of your event floorplan layout. The many varieties of 3D floorplan viewing options help to ensure that you’re 100% satisfied with the layout during the design process. This makes the day of the event seamless, accurate, and in line with your event vision.

 


Having an Outdoor Event?

 

It’s easy to create and design an outdoor event layout using Allseated’s event layout tools and wedding tent layout tools.

 

Allseated can create outdoor floorplans to scale! We can work with Google Maps screenshots or *overhead* photographs as long as they have at least one accurate dimension included. We can also work with hand-drawn diagrams but please be aware that if the drawing itself isn’t to scale, we need the area dimensions in order to produce an accurate diagram! You can upload your outdoor floorplan using the Floorplan Wizard.

This virtual capability also allows venues to show clients proposed layouts with ability to make changes in real-time.
