Traditional seating? Snooze fest. Planners now have many more options than standard chairs when it comes to selecting seating for events. And while these options might not be suitable
for every situation. Consider these ideas that show how seating can be used to accent the
decor or tie into an event’s vibe.
For one of the sessions at EIBTM, the Global Meetings and Events Expo, attendees sat on large
red stability balls. The event took place in November in Barcelona.
In the new networking area at Sapphire Now in June in Orlando, guests could choose from seating
options such as wooden pallets, leather cubes, and cadrboard cubes, which were strong enough to
sit on but light and easy to move.
Social Media Week London
At Social Media Week London in September, shipping crates became “Skypepods.” Each unit was
equipped with Microsoft products and enabled with Skype so attendees could get work done or chat
with colleagues online.
