    1. US Markerboard goes Green

    What does it mean to go green?

    Going green means choosing high-quality products that don't compromise the quality of our environment. And it's not just a passing fad - when you choose to buy green products, you're making a concerted effort to achieve the right balance for yourself and for the planet. US Markerboard thought about how to help you find that balance, and we came to a few important conclusions:
    • Green markerboards, whiteboards, supplies, desks, and furniture give off lower emissions and often use recycled content and materials from old products, thereby reducing waste.
    • By making these products available to you, we provide the office supplies and school furniture you need to go green.
    • The more you buy and use, the greener our world becomes.
    As a result, we created a new website called USMarkerboard-Green.com to satisfy all your green shopping needs. Many of our products are GreenGuard™ certified and can help you get your building LEED certified. Visit USMarkerboard-Green.com today and save on our wide selection of high-quality, environmentally friendly office equipment, furniture and supplies. Read our Press Release.

    3. Seating and Table Arrangements

    Bring Your Guests Together

    We all know real estate comes down to 3 key factors: location, location, and location. So at your next spring event, your guests naturally want to know where they're sitting so they can figure out how far away the buffet line is, and who they'll be talking to for the duration. For that reason alone, seating and table arrangements can make or break your event. In addition, you need to assess the size and shape of your event space and choose round or square tables to balance the number of people being seated. However, there's another very important dynamic to consider - flow of conversation based on seating arrangements. For example, the right arrangement at a company outing can encourage people from different departments to get acquainted on a personal level. And at weddings, you can put together guests who share something in common to enhance the flow of friendly conversation. Having a seating plan also saves time before an event begins, so guests don't have to play musical chairs.

    So whether you're a bona fide event planner or just looking for different ideas on where to go or how to choose the right venue, click here for some great suggestions.
