If you have ever sat and watched people really enjoying themselves at a banquet, something jumps out. Its fun to see people engaged in conversation with the people at their table, moving around the banquet hall or totally engrossed in the entertainment or the speaker. And if you were the one who organized the banquet, it’s a pretty gratifying feeling to see your event become such a success.
The thing that stands out when you see the guests having a great time at the banquet meal is that the things you think about a lot are the things the guests notice the least. As a banquet planner, little things are vitally important so you have to obsess about the food, the decorations, the tables, the tablecloths, the banquet hall and even something as mundane as the chairs. But the guests at the banquet you are hosting take these things for granted.
The thing to remember is that if even such things as the chairs are comfortable and do their job well, they will be taken for granted and go unnoted. And if the people at the banquet can use those chairs effectively, easily and in comfort, the chairs did their job and so did you. So when you are shopping to equip your banquet facility, there are some criteria that will make the chairs you purchase perfect for just about any banquet setting.
. The chairs have to be stackable. When you are going to host banquets that could as easily be 50 as 500 people, you have to be able to store a lot of chairs in a small space.
. The chairs have to be comfortable. The comfort of you banquet guests is the top priority for ever aspect of the event. And since their chair is the time that the guest will be in "contact" with the most, that contact point has to take good care of the customer all evening.
. The chairs have to be durable. Buying dozens, perhaps hundreds of chairs is a big investment. You want the equipment you buy to not only last a long time but to not need excessive repairs so you can get maximum use from each chair.
. The chairs have to be good looking. The visual appeal of the banquet hall is important to carry the theme. The chairs must blend in nicely and compliment just about any color scheme or décor.
. The chairs have to be versatile. They must be able to accommodate an outdoor event or just about any style of banquet imaginable and keep on doing a great job every time.
If the chairs you buy pass all of these criteria, then you will have bought the right equipment that will not only make the banquet you are planning next work well, they will be here for you year in and year out to keep making banquet guests happy and continue to be taken for granted many years from now.
