Presentation Tips for the Size and Shape of Rooms

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld once commented about how the fear of public speaking is more prevalent than the fear of death, "To the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy."

The truth is that amidst fears, communicating publicly is a vital part of business and education. There are many factors that can make or break a large presentation: size and shape of room, lighting, acoustics, visual aids, furniture (lecterns and podiums, tables, chairs), and combinations of the above factors.

But how do you optimize the experience of the listener? Amplivox has created a document called the Space Planning Guide to assist in doing just that.

In this document we show how to optimize the use of our Audio Portable Buddy (SW222), Roving Rostrum Podium PA (SW124), iPod Portable PA System (SW720), Victoria Solid Hardwood Lectern (SW3020), Modular Tabletop Lectern (SW250), Multimedia Computer Lectern (SW3230), Presidential Lectern (SW450), and our Adjustable Sound Column Lectern (SW505A).

These tips can apply to so many different types of events. Just to name a few: seminars, trade shows, state fairs, open houses, wine tastings, book signings, art exhibits, new product demonstrations, workshops, conferences, seminars, lectures, sales meetings, educational classes, business presentations, religious events (worship services, church retreats and outings), camps, fundraisers, charitable events, sports competitions, marathons, charity events, chamber of commerce, group activities, mixers, reunions, club meetings, holiday parties, birthdays, client appreciation events, recreation events, receptions, buffets, banquets, neighborhood block parties, and board meetings.
