Setting up for Business Meetings
Corporate events can be an important revenue stream for your hotel. There can be all types of events that local businesses may want to hold and each present a different challenge. It could be a meeting with a few people or a large group. Whatever the size, you’ll want to make sure you can provide the needed seating. It could be long rows of tables and chairs if there’s a presentation. You’d also need a podium and a screen to accommodate a powerpoint display. It’s a good idea to be able to provide pens, and pads so attendees can take notes.
Some meetings might require more communication between various parties. That might mean round tables for face to face discussion. You might also need to partition the meeting area off if participants break into small groups. All of this furniture requires storage and if you find yourself lacking space, A.B. Richards

Portable Storage Containers Help Hotels Be Ready For Expositions
Hotels are also a popular venue for trade shows, job or college fairs and expositions. If you’re hosting one, that requires a different layout for the floor. You’ll usually find rectangular tables and and linens are needed. You’ll likely have an open floor and you could need to set up stanchions with posts and ropes or a retractable belt in order to keep the crowd flowing properly. You might need audio-visual equipment for presentations wiring and other electronic equipment.
More and more, business events have a different look. According to the New York Times, hotels are starting to make meeting rooms look like lounges. Folding chairs and tables are being replaced by leather furniture and even bar areas. Participants are looking to be more comfortable, according to Dr. Stephani Robson, a senior lecturer at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. As hotels become many things to many people, you might need to keep a large amount of furniture on hand. A.B. Richards has 40-foot portable storage units, which can help with bigger storage jobs.
Storage Needs For Catered Events

In addition to tables and chairs, a lot more goes into these events. You might need to set up bars, carving stations, a performance space for musicians and centerpieces.
