Number of Guests

(record the approximate number of guests who attended)

The area occupied by a guest is about 0.8~2 square meters, so if we calculate by the maximum value, 100 peoples need 200 square meters of site area.


In addition to the location where guests stand, we still need to place the food tables, tables, and chairs. A regular rectangular buffet table (120cm in length and 40cm in width) occupies 4.8 square meters, and a table that can seat 8 peoples, covering area is about 6.25 square meters, so the organizer can increase the required buffet tables and tables and chairs according to the actual situation.

Other Areas

In addition to these areas, a party also needs to place an important area of the stage (the national standard stage size is 18 meters in width and 20 meters in length, which is equal to 360 square meters).

    It feels like 20m is only appropriate for a fancy party. I let 100 people attend this party chose 15m is really not enough.
