Let’s dive into the must-have event furniture for conferences and conventions that will make a lasting impression on your guests and boost attendance in the years to come.
Comfort is a crucial aspect of any conference or convention. Attendees can spend hours seated, listening to speakers or presentations. Ensure they have a pleasant experience with our extensive range of comfortable seating options. From ergonomic Acrylic Ghost Arm Chairs to simple Folding Chairs with padding, we have a variety of seating solutions to suit your event’s needs and theme. If your conference includes workshops or requires attendees to take notes, don’t forget about the importance of providing sturdy and spacious tables. Our inventory boasts a diverse selection of event tables, including classic rectangular ones and contemporary round tables, perfect for taking notes and supporting laptops or other materials. Hosting a sizeable convention? Not to worry! We stock plenty of furniture rentals for large events.
Stylish Staging & Podiums
Impress your attendees and elevate the overall look of your event with our stylish staging and podium options. A well-designed stage not only provides a focal point for speakers and presentations but also adds a touch of professionalism. Especially our Acrylic Podium! We can also provide skirts, for a more cohesive look. And to make the stage even more captivating, consider using our Boxwood Walls as backdrops. These versatile walls will add a touch of greenery and elegance – to avoid the mundane corporate vibe. However, they can also be customized to feature event sponsors or display important branding elements. As well as serve as a photo opportunity!
Lounge Areas for Networking
Networking is one of the primary benefits of attending a professional conference or convention. To give your attendees ample opportunity to foster connections, encourage mingling in lounge areas. Our event furniture includes plush sofas, cozy armchairs, and elegant accent tables. Perfect for attendees to unwind or mingle and network between sessions or during multi-day events. These pieces will allow them to take a break and recharge before diving back into the conference. Take a look at our curated Lounge Packages, or mix and match pieces to create a one-of-a-kind lounge. Just don’t forget to complete the look with a rug!
Cocktail Hour Essentials
End your conference on a high note with a stylish cocktail hour! Our event furniture for conferences includes bars and storage that are functional and will add a touch of sophistication to your gathering. Consider our contemporary Sorrento White Bar or the elegant Collins Black Wood Bar. Either of which paired beautifully with the Black Barback Shelf or Gold Bookcase. To complement the event bar, ensure you have on-trend glassware that suits your menu. From modern wine glasses to bold beaded tumblers, we have a wide selection to choose from. If needed, add on a set of cocktail tables where guests can comfortably enjoy their drinks.
Planning a successful convention requires attention to detail, and event furniture for conferences can make all the difference! From seating to staging and cocktail hour essentials, Southern Events has everything you need. Contact our team to start planning or for additional event ideas and inspiration.

Team Southern recently had the opportunity to collaborate with local vendors on a whimsical styled shoot at The Cordelle. An event venue & garden situated in Downtown Nashville, it was a stunning backdrop for the colorful outdoor wedding. With a mix of historic and modern spaces, featuring grandeur and charm, there was no shortage of room to create a functional and on-trend wedding layout. Check out the details from this dreamy garden-inspired wedding, featuring our stylish event rentals.
Seating for a Whimsical Indoor Ceremony
The ceremony took place in The Victorian, featuring brick walls, hardwood floors, and beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows. Contrasting the urban event space, we opted for our elegant Harlin Dining Chairs. Featuring light wood and detailed backs, they were the perfect choice for the dreamy indoor ceremony. An equally gorgeous alternative would have been our Adeline Dining Chairs! While we decided to keep the aisle bare, featuring a mix of our vintage rugs would have also been a beautiful choice, lending a cozy vibe.
A Dreamy Outdoor Reception Set Up
Meanwhile, the 5,000-square-foot Garden Lawn created an ethereal garden reception. The manicured lawn and bistro lights overhead made for a charming outdoor setup – especially come nightfall. Our Fruitwood Farm Tables and Harlin Dining Chairs were the base for the guest tables. This banquet style is perfect if you want a more intimate feel! Set with Heirloom China, Hob Nob Glassware, and Sophia Flatware, the look was elegant and vintage-inspired. Fun fresh florals and Turqouise Poly Napkins provided a punch of color, fitting for the season! Our Davis Glass Cylinders filled in the table centerpieces.
Blue-Hued Wedding Lounge
Eventually, The Victorian was flipped into a cozy cocktail area. Contrasting the warm-toned space, we chose our always popular Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa and Chair. It paired beautifully with a bright Aqua Rug and modern Rhodes Coffee Table. To optimize the space were a handful of cocktail tables – dressed up with deep black linen. Combining with the whimsical florals, it was a perfect cocktail hour set up for the colorful garden wedding.
On-Theme Wedding Cocktails
To match the colorful event design, equally bold wedding cocktails were required! J Jackson Mobile Mixologist served up a variety of delicious colorful cocktails in our Davis and Coupe Glasses. We chose these pieces for their clean shape, contrasting the vintage-inspired Hob Nob Glassware used at each table. We also loved the fun colors of the beverages as well as edible florals!

With virtual options becoming more normalized for corporate meetings & summits – but attendees still wanting in-person experiences, we expect to see more and more hybrid meeting options. Hybrid corporate summits bring together attendees both in person as well as virtual, making for unique opportunities and challenges when setting the stage and choosing your rentals. After all, they’re still meant to inform and inspire – and impress! To help you host a memorable corporate event for our new normal, check out our essential event rentals that are as functional as they are stylish. Plus! Be sure to grab a copy of our Event Essentials Guide with tips and tricks.
Camera-Ready Stage Set-Ups
It’s important to create the right focal point for your event! A stage that is comfortable, stylish, and on-brand as well as virtually interesting is key. From unique stage seating to out-of-the-box chairs, Southern Events Party Rental Company offers quite the selection to choose from. Our Bennett and Henley Sofas, Eiffel Chairs, Adeline Chairs, Rory Chairs, and Farrah Chairs offer stylish, unique, and comfortable seating for the speakers as they sit on the stage. Accent tables make for a cozy and complete look (as well as a perch for speaker notes or water). Be sure to also consider your stage backdrops – they help frame the space and create a uniform look for virtual users. We love our Boxwood Walls and Pipe & Drape for stage backdrops.
If you are hosting a more formal speaker or handing out awards, then you will need a lectern. Helpful for keeping your guests front and center, as well as amplifying their voice, they are a staple whether or not you have staging. It will also create a more overall organized event layout! In addition to providing a focal point for in-person guests, it will make live streaming easier for the camera crew as there is an obvious mark for people to speak from on stage. Our Acrylic Lectern is a unique contemporary (and customizable with a cling) choice, while Black Metal is a classic.
Upgrade Your Seating for In-Person Socializing
Want to uplevel your event seating? Make the space extra special for in-person attendees and opt for fun contemporary pieces, like our Acrylic Chairs. Available in a variety of styles, they make for a unique addition to any table. You’ll also want cozy lounge and bistro areas. Whether they are used for breakoff sessions or breaks between speakers where people can spread out. Feature one or two of our curated lounge packages, complete with sofas, chairs, rugs, and accent tables.
Show Off Your Brand
Because corporate summits exist to instill pride and cast vision, weaving on-brand materials and signage throughout the event is typically a strong move in the right direction. You can do this through our customizable Harpeth Bar. As well as custom pillows or colorful clings placed on the back of seating. Or opt for a memorable, photo-worthy entryway, made using our elegant Boxwood Walls.
Need help planning your one-off or annual hybrid corporate summits? Our team would love to help you create an event that is stylish and functional. Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let’s get started!

Graduation is a momentous success and lots of people will want to witness the tradition of their loved one walking across the stage. And, as with any event of this scale, the safety of students, faculty, and their families is important. Today we’re sharing our in-stock graduation ceremony rentals that will make for a safer celebration.
Walking across the graduation stage to receive their diploma is a highly anticipated moment for most students. Our sturdy staging (available with and without carpet) includes all of the basics, such as steps and staircases with hand railing.
Want to take your graduation ceremony to the next level? Opt for our Harpeth stage facade and columns for a more polished look. They are customizable, allowing for different combinations and personalized insets – like your school colors or logo. Stage Skirting is another way to finish the look of your event stage, hiding cords and such below – now in stock in natural or black.
Sometimes the best option is to host your graduation ceremony outdoors, perhaps under a tent. In which case, leveling the ground may be in order. To help, our DuraTrac flooring can easily be installed to create a level and sturdy floor throughout the entirety of your event space. It can be installed over grass, dirt, mud, and other uneven surfaces, to protect both your guests and your grass!
Comfortable chairs are the bread and butter of a successful graduation ceremony. Before walking across the graduation stage, a solid portion of the day will be spent seated. Our classic folding chairs promise a put-together look and optimal comfort. Easy to load and transport, they are available in Fruitwood, White, and Black.
Fencing or Rope/Stanchion
Fencing is useful in a variety of ways, from restricting guest access to directing the flow of traffic. We offer beautiful white portable fencing creating organized entry and exit points at your event, as well as a border. Add rope and stanchion to your stage area keeping guests safe and giving the speaking staff or guests a designated space.
Lectern & Easels for Signage
You can’t overlook the importance of signage, whether it is for decoration or directions. We stock both black and gold aluminum easels, perfect for displaying your school logo, a program, or directions to different areas of the event. Carefully placed folding clips ensure that they will remain standing for the length of your event. Our lecterns may also be decorated with your school logo.
