Room Set up
Determining room arrangements through our office will be simplified if you plan in advance how you want the room to look. Include what elements you feel are necessary to achieve your event goals. Consider items such as food tables, staging, sound equipment, and dance floor, etc. We can guide you through this process. If you're looking for ideas check out the "Meeting Layouts that Work" page.
