Rectangle Banquet Tables vs. Round Banquet Tables: Which Holds More People?

Readers who follow our blog know that we often have blog posts answering reader and customer questions. Today’s post is based on a question that has been asked in our website search bar more than 20 times in the past 3 months. The question is “how many less people can you seat using round tables versus using rectangular tables”.

Anyone in the events industry knows that it’s all about head counts. The more people you can fit at a table and the more tables you can fit in a room, the more money to be made. Below we’ve put together an easy to reference table of Round Banquet Tables and Rectangle Banquet Tables including their measurements and how many people they seat.
