If your company hosts large events on rare occasions, renting folding chairs may be the way to go, but for companies that have regular town hall meetings, seminars, banquets or other large functions, investing in folding chairs makes more sense. Wood folding chairs are a popular choice for outdoor use, while plastic and metal chairs are more often used indoors. Folding chairs are lightweight, easy to set up and take down, and can be stored on a cart for easy portability. Stacking chairs are less portable, but they can be moved out of the way when not in use. If your function requires food service, folding tables will allow people to eat and mingle at the same time.
