Audience Systems offer CPD seminar on retractable seating

Used widely in arenas, sports centres and theatres, and now included in the government’s blueprint design for secondary schools, retractable seating is a key way of using public spaces efficiently. Audience Systems is one of the UK’s market leaders for retractable seating, and the first specialist company to offer a CPD seminar on the subject.

Topics covered include:

  • The feasible dimensions of a system
  • How to estimate capacity in a given space
  • Relevant strength and safety standards
  • Functional and operational possibilities
  • Accessibility options
  • Finishes and aesthetics
  • Building interface considerations including floor design, storage area design, and system access.

Audience Systems have a wealth of expertise to draw on, with 30 years’ experience of retractable seating. While recent major installations include Leeds Arena, Motorpoint Arena Sheffield and Singapore Sports Hub, Audience Systems have also installed hundreds of retractable systems in schools, universities, theatres and sports centres worldwide. The company is globally renowned for the quality and durability of its systems, and for providing bespoke retractable solutions to fulfil the most complex of briefs.

The seminar can be tailored to any specific requirements and lasts 45 minutes to an hour. Seminars can be booked by calling +44(0)1373 865050 or emailing enquiries(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign) For more information about Audience Systems, please visit
