Conference Table Guidelines

How many people fit around a table? Below are some general guidelines to use when determining the size of table and number of chairs needed for a conference area. All estimates are based on an average chair width of 23" with 4" clearance between chairs. Adjust accordingly for a different size chair. When ordering large size tables, remember to measure the elevator it will be carried in and the doorways it will travel through.
