Here is a quick and easy method of figuring out seating capacity for any space. Obviously, this hint does not take into account problems caused by wide traffic aisles, location of columns, service doors or unique room shapes.

Banquet Seating

When using oblong tables, divide the room area (square feet) by 8.

When using round tables, divide the room area (square feet) by 10.

These figures are for maximum seating. If space is available for more comfortable seating, allow an additional 2 square feet per person.

Classroom-Style Seating

Divide seating area (square feet) by 8.

Theater-Style Seating

Divide seating area (square feet) by 6.
