In addition to a vast standard object library (including a wide range of tables and chairs based upon the industry standards), Allseated also has several furniture rental partnerships. The furniture partnerships include the two largest national rental companies, AFR and CORT. This allows users to choose from a large selection of event furniture items when designing their event floorplans online. All event furniture renders beautifully in 3D.
It is possible to have custom items rendered and uploaded as a private collection in Allseated. The private collection option allows your vendor team and clients to work with your in-house inventory when designing floorplans using the Allseated events management platform for their events.
Allseated’s room arranging software for events makes it easy for vendors to communicate their needs, especially within the floorplan.
Wedding and event vendors can enter their own details and requirements within the floorplan layout. The collaborative nature of Allseated allows for easy communication, keeping the entire vendor team up to date throughout the planning process and able to work together virtually in real time.
Here are some examples of how vendors can communicate their needs within the floorplan.
An entertainment company is able to include the design for their staging layout without the floorplan to show the dimensions for their needs during the event.
The entertainment company can mark areas for:
A rental company can detail how and where the rentals should be placed within the layout.
Rental items such followed may be included:
A rental company can also take into account the entertainment company’s layout when designing their own layout for furniture so that the room is well set up for the event.
Event planners can use the floorplan and information from other vendors to their advantage to include their own details such as:
The caterer or venue may be responsible for providing the tables and linens so they need to know which table sizes to set up for the event. This is information they can gather from seeing the details listed by other vendors within the floorplan.
The caterer will take note of the details provided by each vendor as an overview for setup and execution of the event. The layout also assists the caterer when considering the overall flow of the room and placement of items such as:
Photographers are not often involved in designing an event’s floorplan. However, if photographers can gain access to a 2D or 3D floorplan of the event, they can then use the layout to better manage their time and tasks constructively in order to capture all of the elements via photo and video.
Photographers like to mark the floorplan with the area in which they may take formal photos and placement of selfie stations.
