Room configurations refer to the manner in which a room can be set up for an event. The majority of rooms in venues provide for different types of setups, and these setups also dictate the capacity of a room for the specific set up. For example: A room for a banquet without a dance floor may be able to hold 300 people, but once you add the dance floor, it can only hold 250 people seated. Or a room that has a capacity for a banquet of 300 seated at rounds can only accommodate 150 people seated in one large square. The different types of room configurations are as follows:
- Hollow Square
Please also note that if you are selecting a room and you are at maximum capacity for that room for the desired configuration, it is important to let the venue know what else you want to have for your event. It is possible that being at the maximum capacity for the room may not allow you do have a buffet in that room because you desire seating at rounds with a dance floor and this maximizes the space, and buffets would not be an option. Or you may be able to have buffet, but you may be required to rent an additional room to house those buffets, and that was not in your original budget. Something else to note is that even though you are inviting 300 guests for example, that does not mean that all 300 are going to attend, no how wonderful a person you are.
