Allseated Physical Distance Tool

Allseated has launched a revolutionary new technology that enables the creation of social distance floorplans providing the Events Industry with a path to safely reopen as COVID-19 restrictions are eased. As seen on NBC News NOW, this physical distance tool for event floorplans 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 forefront
  • Create layouts to meet distancing guidelines to run a safe distance event.

“The physical distance tool has been completely invaluable — I can’t imagine what we would be able to do without this tool! We need to make clients feel comfortable and using the distance tool allows us to do that.”

Objects Library 

In addition to a vast standard object library (including a wide range of tables and chairs based upon the industry standards),  Allseated also has several furniture rental partnerships. The furniture partnerships include the two largest national rental companies, AFR and CORT. This allows users to choose from a large selection of event furniture items when designing their event floorplans online. All event furniture renders beautifully in 3D.

Private Collections

It is possible to have custom items rendered and uploaded as a private collection in Allseated. The private collection option allows your vendor team and clients to work with your in-house inventory when designing floorplans using the Allseated events management platform for their events.

Easy Vendor Collaboration

Allseated’s room arranging software for events  makes it easy for vendors to communicate their needs, especially within the floorplan.

Wedding and event vendors can enter their own details and requirements within the floorplan layout. The collaborative nature of Allseated allows for easy communication, keeping the entire vendor team up to date throughout the planning process and able to work together virtually in real time.

Here are some examples of how vendors can communicate their needs within the floorplan.

An entertainment company is able to include the design for their staging layout without the floorplan to show the dimensions for their needs during the event.

 

The entertainment company can mark areas for:

  • Lighting equipment
  • Plasma screens
  • Photo stations or entertainment stations
  • Sound, power needs, dance floor dimensions,
  • DJ staging booth and facade and the staging plot for instrumentation layout.
  • And more!

A rental company can detail how and where the rentals should be placed within the layout.

Rental items such followed may be included:

  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Tabletop items
  • Bars
  • Lounge furniture and objects
  • Dancefloors
  • Tents 
  • Hand Sanitation Dispensers

A rental company can also take into account the entertainment company’s layout when designing their own layout for furniture so that the room is well set up for the event.

Event Planners can use the floorplan and information from other vendors to their advantage to include their own details such as:

  • Ceremony items
  • Escort card table placement (with notes on how it will be set up)
  • Menu cards
  • Personal items such as champagne flutes, the cake cutting knife, favors or any other personal items that will be brought to the event.

The caterer or venue may be responsible for providing the tables and linens so they need to know which table sizes to set up for the event. This is information they can gather from seeing the details listed by other vendors within the floorplan.

The caterer will take note of the details provided by each vendor as an overview for set up and execution of the event. The layout also assists the caterer when considering the overall flow of the room and placement of items such as:

  • The dance floor area
  • The cake table
  • And any additional tables required for the event

Photographers are not often involved in designing an event’s floorplan. However, if photographers can gain access to a 2D or 3D floorplan of the event, they can then use the layout to better manage their time and tasks constructively in order to capture all of the elements via photo and video.

Photographers like to mark the floorplan with the area in which they may take formal photos and placement of selfie stations.
