Tabling sessions are done to mainly focus on one particular issue like the cruelty going on in the poultry industry or the dairy industry or the meat industry. This can be an event where you can put your thinking cap on and be more creative and innovative about the approach you are going to take for conducting the session. Since you are focusing only on one issue at a time, it helps in deeply engaging the audience in the activity.
Some basic guidelines to successfully conduct a tabling session:
Almost all events where tabling can be done provide the stalls with a table and a few chairs. You also don’t have to worry about charging the tablets/ laptops since electricity will also be provided by the host.
Costumes or other props help attract attention, so use it if you can. However ensure that the props are stable and dismantle easily.
During summers, make sure to provide an overhead cover to the stall and keep yourself cool and hydrated.
*Pro-tip – To make the event more engaging, conduct an activity with the people who are coming in to visit the stall. For ideas, you can look up the previous events our volunteers have conducted in various cities. **
