Auditorium seating refers to the arrangement of chairs or seats in a large hall or auditorium, such as in a theatre, concert hall, or conference room. The goal of auditorium seating is to provide comfort, visibility, and accessibility to all members of the audience.

There are several types of auditorium seating arrangements, including:

  1. Traditional seating: This arrangement is a classic theatre-style layout, with rows of seats facing the stage or performance area. Each row is elevated above the one in front of it to improve visibility.

  2. Arena seating: This is a circular or semicircular arrangement of seats around a central stage or performance area. This type of seating is often used for sporting events or concerts.

  3. Classroom seating: This arrangement is common in lecture halls and conference rooms, with chairs or seats arranged in rows facing the front of the room.

  4. Banquet seating: This arrangement is used for events where guests will be seated at tables, such as dinners or weddings. Tables are usually arranged in a grid pattern, with chairs placed around them.

When designing an auditorium seating plan, it's important to consider factors such as the size of the space, the type of event, and the number of attendees. The seating arrangement should provide clear sight lines to the stage or performance area, and ensure that every seat is comfortable and easily accessible.

We have three ranges of auditorium seating. Arpa, Lira and Prima as shown below.
