Organizing an Event Seating Chart
The floorplan and seating chart are some of most significant pieces in the event planning puzzle, but they are often overlooked until the end of the process. Not only does it help to ensure organization and ease of set up, but it also helps the catering team to understand the logistics of their service area.
Mapping out a floorplan layout to scale helps a caterer make sure that the tables are positioned in the correct locations, with enough room for staff to walk through the room and serve guests. Having access to the seating chart will also tell them how many guests are in attendance, along with any specifics for individual guests—whether that means a gluten-free meal at one table or a special cocktail for the guest of honor.
