6 Ideas To Choose the Best Meeting Room Styles & Tips of Meeting Room Design

In these days of COVID-19, if you want to have a quick meeting with your colleagues,  I am afraid it is not an appropriate practice to pull the chair to someone's desk.


The meeting room design is very important in the face of different meeting topics and people. It affects the efficiency of the speaker and the progress of the staff, and each meeting layout serves a different purpose. For example, some are useful for communicating new product knowledge, while others are great for group discussions and personal interactions. Let's learn more about boardroom style first.


Modern Meeting Room Style


Let's take a look at the six most common room layouts and choose the one that works best for you.

Meeting room style

1. Theater/Auditorium style


For a theater-style meeting room arrangement, the seating is like what you would see in a theater or movie theater. Lined up in rows, there is a center stage for the speakers, separated by a central or side aisle for easy access to the meeting,  with audience seats facing the stage in a straight line or semicircle.


When the meeting room needs to accommodate a larger group of people or the space is tight, then the theater layout is the best choice. This layout has little need for two-way interaction and is suitable for corporate-themed presentations or major meetings, like Skandanshi Corporate office's annual meeting and China Financial Futures Exchange(CFFEX), where speakers present their topics and answer the audience's questions on the center stage.



2. Classroom style


Also known as "school style," the classroom-style meeting room combines several meeting room types. The audience is lined up facing the main speaker, much like a theater-style, but with tables in front of the audience to take notes, use computers or dine, while being able to view presentations clearly.


It is suitable for education training or seminars, such as the meeting hall of Guiyang Municipal Public Security Bureau and the meeting hall of Chongqing Ronghui Peninsula Hotel, which helps to expand the meeting space and experience.

3.  Hоllоw Sԛuаrе Style


The hollow square layout mimics the U-shaped design, also called the "closed U". It usually consists of four tables in a rectangular, square, or other design shape, next to each other.


What makes this conference room style special is the empty space in the middle, which allows a person to move between the four tables to offer advice or answer questions, etc.


It helps to promote communication and interaction among team members, and is suitable for several group discussions or group meetings of less than 20 people. The application of this style is common in conference of enterprises and institutions, and the meeting hall of the Guiyang Municipal Public Security Bureau also uses this meeting style.



4. U-shaped Style


The U-shaped meeting style, sometimes called a "horseshoe", is created in the shape of the letter "U" with an opening placed end-to-end at the meeting table, or using round tables with seating around one end leaving an opening and chairs placed on the outside of the table, it helps speakers and attendees interact and everyone can see the presentation on the screen.


This style is suitable for рrеѕеntаtiоnѕ, video conferencing, and training sessions, and the Wing Mau Building's U-shaped conference table is simple and stylish, with sophisticated ergonomic chairs which are the convenient exchange of ideas and communication. 



5. Bоаrdrооm Style


 That's the classic boardroom style you've seen in countless movies and sitcoms, typically featuring rectangular or oval tables with seating on all sides, where top executives gather at the meeting table to discuss important decisions.

This meeting style is suitable for important meetings or video meetings. The smart meeting room at Wing Mau Building uses white tone as the main element, with modern leather chairs for a unique meeting experience.



6. Banqueting style
When you see the banquet style, you may think of an awards ceremony, which usually consists of a series of round tables that can seat 8 to 10 guests, this banquet style seating is also used for group events and social events. You can use the banquet hall for lunch or other refreshments during the meeting break time.

Banquet-style meeting layouts are often found in hotel banquet halls. The new Chinese-style banquet hall in Chongqing Ronghui Peninsula Hotel has flexible and changeable table and chair settings and can be divided into various types. It is an ideal place for luxury meetings, exhibitions, and weddings.





Different Types of Meeting Room Design
Now, let us talk about the tips of meeting room design. When designing a meeting area for a team, it is important to consider the number of people and the purpose of the space.
Every office and team is different and the goals of the meeting and the content of the meeting will be different.


  • Small Meeting Room: A room with a capacity of six or fewer, which is a good choice for small conference calls and specialized work sessions. It is usually equipped with a round or small rectangular table and comfortable seating.
  • Large Meeting Room: Room with a capacity of seven or more. Ideal for larger groups to brainstorm, this space is often equipped with standard rectangular conference tables and conference chairs, enabling everyone to see and hear each other, and facilitating team collaboration.
  • Boardroom: Typically reserved for executives, boardrooms are more formal.


Meetings with important clients, board members, and other key collaborative meetings can be held in this space. In addition to having rectangular conference tables, conference chairs, bookcases, or other storage furniture, this space is also equipped with some modern audio-visual equipment to facilitate the display of major project documents.
