What Should I think About When Determining How Many People Can Fit At A Conference Table?

Table size and shape: This is the most important factor. Rectangular tables typically seat more people than round tables for the same amount of space. The table’s dimensions (length, width, and height) will tell you how much personal space each person will have.

Chair size: Larger chairs take up more space, reducing the number of people who can comfortably fit around the table.

Desired comfort level: A tight squeeze with minimal elbow room might be okay for informal meetings, but for longer meetings or those requiring note-taking, more space per person is desirable.

Number of chairs: This doesn’t necessarily equal the number of people who can comfortably fit, as chairs might be stored elsewhere or not all present might need seating.

Here are some general guidelines:

  • Minimum space per person: 30 inches is considered the minimum, but 36 inches is more comfortable and 42 inches is generous.
  • Table size vs. number of people:
    • 6 people: 6ft x 3ft table
    • 8 people: 8ft x 4ft table
    • 10 people: 10ft x 4ft table
