We are hopeful that face-to-face events will start to be possible again this year. But no doubt there will still be requirements for social distancing and recording where people are seated. For more details about the various ways PerfectTablePlan can help you with COVID-related event issues see our socially distanced seating page.

If you have any other ideas about how we can help mitigate COVID19, please let us know.

The toughest seating plan in history?

Treaty of Westphalia

The Thirty Years War was finally bought to a close by the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648. The treaty involved 194 states represented by 179 plenipotentiaries, with thousands of ancillary diplomats and support staff. The treaty took 4 years to agree and the first 6 months was spent arguing about seating plans, protocol and order of precedence, including the order people should enter the room. The principal French and Spanish envoys never managed to meet at all, because the correct protocol could not be agreed. It took 3 weeks just to organize the signing ceremony.
