Seating Arrangements

Where Will I Sit?

Depending on final numbers, tables will seat either 10-12 people. EDSOC will do our best to organise seating arrangements by a first come, first serve basis. Hence, those who purchase tickets early have a seat closer to the front of the stage. Also, attendees who purchase their tickets in the one transaction will have automatic preference to be seated together, unless otherwise requested or unless no tables are left for the group size. Seating arrangement will be finalised during Monday 12th – Friday 16th October (Week 11). An instructional email will be sent to the buyer’s email address on Monday 12th October for either more details or to finalise seating arrangements. We will do our best to make all attendees happy and surrounded by their cohort.

 UPDATE – Due to selling out early, seating arrangement will be finalised during Week 10. Seats per table is confirmed at 12 seats.
