A business Town Hall Meeting is similar to meeting styles popularized by political candidates. A key aspect of a Town Hall Meeting that differentiates it from other meetings is lively and direct audience participation, often with a speaker circulating among audience members. A town hall meeting is one in which presenters generally provide information on a range of topics all of which relate to the host organization. As such, executive staff members are usually assembled in one location (typically a large audience location) and they interact with the audience as they present their materials.

Key elements of Town Hall meetings include special audio/visual aids such as multiple large monitors or projection images of the presenters and their information. Presenters need mobility as they move about the audience or stage and so wireless microphones are commonly required. What is less obvious is audience support. In a Town Hall style meeting, the audience is an integral part of the presentation. Their questions, responses and reactions to the presentations become a focal point of the meeting itself.

These factors taken together require special attention from the technical staff in the planning and setup of audio visual systems. In these forums special attention to camera and microphone access is applied to both presenter and audience members. Good planning and venue selection make this all work well even with the many challenges Town Hall Meetings present.
