This tool helps you calculate the optimal conference room space based on the number of attendees.

### How to Use the Conference Room Space Calculator

To use this calculator, simply fill in the necessary values:

- Enter the length, width, and height of the room in meters.
- Specify the number of people you plan to accommodate.
- Enter the total area occupied by tables in square meters.
- Enter the total area occupied by chairs in square meters.
- Specify the area needed per person for standing (default is set to 0.5 square meters).
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result.

### Calculation Explanation

The calculator computes the space requirement based on the following steps:

- Calculate the total volume of the room by multiplying the length, width, and height.
- Compute the area occupied by tables and chairs.
- Calculate the needed standing space by multiplying the number of people by the standing area per person.
- Subtract the area occupied by tables and chairs from the total room area.
- If the remaining area is greater than or equal to the total space needed for people to stand, the room is sufficient; otherwise, it is insufficient.

### Limitations

This calculator does not account for irregular room shapes, fixed installations apart from tables and chairs, or additional requirements such as stage space, presentation equipment, closets, etc. Ensure to consider any special requirements independently.
