Seating for Large Groups

Comfort is key for every successful large group event.

Despite all of the efforts that go into making a special event successful, wise event planners know that when their guests are seated for extended periods of time, nothing affects their level of comfort more than the venue’s seating.

As such, large hospitality venues look for specific chair attributes when selecting their banquet seating. Among these factors is the chair’s cushion. A thick cushion doesn’t necessarily mean more comfort. MityLite’s Comfort Seating banquet chairs use MDI-based polyurethane flexible foam that provides a superior longer-term quality and improved pressure redistribution.

A recline feature also enhances guest comfort. MityLite’s patented flex-back features a fail-safe design that avoids pinch points and reclines up to 5.5 inches for maximum comfort.

Chair width and spacing are also important considerations. Look for manufacturers that offer seat widths of at least 18.5 inches. A few generous-width chairs on-hand also help to ensure guest comfort.

Lastly, hospitality venues stock large supplies of 60-inch round tables to accommodate large weddings and special events. A banquet chair with a seat width of 18.5 inches provides comfortable seating for up to 10 guests around one of these round banquet tables.
