@stod:  I would just get the largest size you can. You might consider splitting the seating chart into more than two posters because its going to be difficult for 400 people to find their name on one poster.

Could you instead split it up by last name? Have cards “A-G”, “H-M”, “N-S”, and “T-Z”. Then everyone will know which card to look for and have an easier time finding their name.

Do you mean the kind where it’s just a list of names with a corresponding number next to them or do you mean like a layout of the room?

@asscherlover:  This.

If you end up with a disaproportionate number of people on one board over the other, re-work the classification until it is about the same amount of people on each one (for example, instead of A-G, you may need to do A-C if there are a ton of Cs). I absolutely would not put up to 700 names on one poster alone bc to make it legible, it will be like a “Grand Opening” banner you see hung up over storefronts.

Considering you will have 70 tables, I would also consider a map of the room if your table numbers are hard to see from across the room. I would likely go with the standard giant table number on a stick format.
