Enter the total event area (ft^2) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Event Capacity. 

Event Capacity Formula

EC = TA / 6


  • EC is the Event Capacity (people)
  • TA is the total event area (ft^2)

To calculate Event Capacity, divide the total event size in square feet by 6.

How to Calculate Event Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Event Capacity.

  1. First, determine the total event area (ft^2). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = EC = TA / 6.
  3. Finally, calculate the Event Capacity.
  4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total event area (ft^2) = 100,000
