Round banquet tables


Round banquet tables exude a more formal tone and is widely used for weddings, annual dinners and award nights. Usually, each banquet table fits up to 10 pax and since everyone faces one another, it allows meaningful conversations to be created within the 10 people seated around the table.

This is used for events which are looking to have the best of both worlds. While it creates a casual setting, the square banquet table is able to allow 8 – 10 people who are seated on the table to create meaningful conversations.
