If you have one display, you might be able to get 40 people through. However, you would probably have a single round of the 3x3x3 and it could end up taking a few hours. Think if someone comes along and is a 4 minute solver. His average of 5 would take at least 20 minutes and he would tie up the station for a long time.
The more displays you have, the less time it'll take (assuming you have enough judges/scramblers to keep the stations full).
The more events you have, the more time it'll take.
The more rounds you have, the more time it'll take.
The more competitors you have, the more time it'll take.
so you have to make sure you're balancing everything appropriately. Don't schedule too many events, because some people will be disappointed if you cut "their" event. If you have the venue for a limited time, you want to make sure you'll fit into your time limit. If you have events like the 4x4x4 and 5x5x5, you may want to do a combined final and have a limit that people must pass before continuing.
