Discuss with your coordinator the desired setup and appearance. To include, but not limited to, style of tables (i.e. classroom tables, round tables, square or family style tables), tables needed for registration, vendors, materials, etc., placement of tables.
Here are the most standard ways to set our meeting rooms:

Catering Be thorough when discussing food and beverage for your event. If you wish to have specialty items ordered/prepared be sure the venue can accommodate your requests.
Inform coordinator of plans for presentations, speeches, lighting, etc. to ensure appropriate equipment is available and provided.
Hotel Booking Have an idea of the number of rooms needed for guests...
Will the guests be paying for their own rooms, or will you as the host pay?
What type of function are you requiring the block for?
Additional details to share with your coordinator:
Order of events
Special diets or allergies of guests
Name of outside decorator, DJ/entertainment, etc.
Stay organized and plan ahead.
Consider contacting your coordinator 3 to 6 months prior to the start event date to begin discussing food, beverage, setup, etc.
Familiarize yourself with the event policy pages and ask questions if you are unsure of items outlined in the agreement. This will ensure guidelines and stipulations are being abided by.
Closely monitor and regulate guest count. When preparing your guest list consider the maximum capacity to prevent any roadblocks. All elements of the event (buffet lines, staging, displays, etc.) affect how many guests the room can accommodate.
Research current event trends and ideas as a theme is a great way to engage your guests and make your event that much more exciting!
