Skift Global Forum, the biggest creative business forum in the global travel industry debuted last year to rave reviews. It was the first conference focused on top strategists, technologists, and marketers in travel, the people creating the future of travel.
For their 2015 conference, located at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, they were looking to double their size. They desired a seating system that would allow them to maximize their seat count in limited space on a limited budget. Seating Solutions supplied Skift with nearly 700 of our Ultimate Floortrack flip-up seats. With no front legs on our flip up seats and a 30” tread depth per row spacing, Skift was able to get 20% more seats over conventional folding chairs. This system was quick to assemble because the track laid flat on the ground and the seats locked into the track. No realigning, no shifting, no zip tying of seats; now that’s easy!
Conferences can be long; it’s hard for people to stay focused on the speaker when they are uncomfortable. We made sure everyone was seated comfortably by supplying them with plush black padded seat covers, arm rests and cup holders. Convenient, comfortable, classy!
