The setup and layout of a space plays a critical role in how your attendees experience your event. At CEO SUITE, our managers and personnel are all trained to advice and arrange our meeting & conference spaces to help achieve the unique objectives of your event.

Here we list down the most popular setups that we use for our conference spaces and meeting rooms:

4 – 8 seats Meeting Room

This layout is good for small meetings, interviews, and focus group discussions. A single oval or rectangular table is used here, with 4 to 8 chairs in the perimeter of the table; size of the table dictates the maximum number of seats.

Theatre style

Similar to seating found in theatres or cinemas, this style has chairs arranged in rows all facing front.

Depending on the desired layout and quantity of seats, empty columns or aisles can be placed to divide the rows. This allows for easier access to seats situated in the middle of a row.

Theatre style is ideal for presentations or events where extensive note taking, writing, or laptop use is not expected.

Classroom style

Similar to theatre style, but seats are paired with tables to allow for extensive writing, note taking, or computer use.

This style is good for trainings and conferences.

U-shape Style

Chairs are arranged in the shape of the letter U, with 3 outer sides available for seating facing inwards. One side is open that can be used for presentation setup.

Unlike classrom style setup, the U-shape setup allows for easier interaction between the presenter and individual attendees, as well as discussions between attendees.


Typical setup for small to medium sized discussions. This usually consists of a rectangular table setup, with the shorter sides normally having 1 seat each.

Banquet / Dinner Style

Banquet style simulates a round dinner table and breaks up attendees into smaller groups. This setup encourages conversation and interaction among attendees in the same table as they all face each other.

This setup is ideal for informal events dinners, and parties.


A cabaret style is similar to the banquet setup but has less number of seats to open up an area on the front side of the tables. This setup allows attendees to easily focus on the presentation or interact with the presenters up front, while also encouraging conversations between seatmates.
