New to Meetings & Events | Directional Arrows

As we begin to hold face-to-face meetings, one of the new items that will be displayed are directional arrows. These arrows will be used to guide attendees safely through the meeting space and create one-way aisles that minimize cross over. In the diagram above, you can see the directional arrows are creating a safe walkway for attendees to move around the room and exit/enter the meeting space.

In addition to assisting with traffic flow, directional arrows also offer a new and unique sponsorship opportunity. The arrows can be personalized to include logos or event branding materials. By allowing sponsors to display their logos on your directional areas you can add a new revenue stream to your next event. At Meeting Sites Pro, we are dedicated to working with our clients to find functional and safe ways to meet face-to-face.

The Future of Meeting Space

As we look forward to planning meetings and events, one challenging factor is accounting for social distancing. In the current environment, it has become difficult for planners to maximize the space in a room while creating a memorable experience for attendees. However, there are still ways to ensure safety and still meet face-to-face.

In the diagram below, you can see the layout for a classroom set with one person per a six-foot table. While this does look quite different than what we are used to seeing, this set allows attendees to maintain six feet of social distancing and meet safely. You will notice that there are arrows displayed on the floor to guide attendees when they enter and exit the meeting space and reduce contact.

A great resource for creating a social distancing diagram like this one is allseated.com. The site provides feature that ensure six feet of distance between all seats and allows you to add directional arrows. Although meeting diagrams may look different for the time being, face-to-face meetings can still create a memorable and safe experience for attendees!
