    Panel Layout

    A thin table, with 4-6 chairs and 4 wireless microphones can be setup to accomodate a panel discussion. The projector screen can be lowered to show information behind the panel, or raised (concealed) so the audience focus is on the people on the panel.

    In lieu of the traditional panel setup, two padded chairs and a small table for beverages, notes, or anything else can be placed on the stage. This layout is designed for more intimate discussions between a featured subject and an interviewer.
