How do you choose a venue for a company seminar?


Why hold a company seminar?

A company seminar is the ideal opportunity to build team cohesion and carry out exciting projects. It's an essential management tool with many benefits for the company. The choice of venue for a company seminar should not be overlooked.

These events build synergy between employees. It's also a time for sharing and showing gratitude for the goals we've achieved.

The atmosphere outside the offices is often more relaxed. During these events, we alternate work with play and festivities.

Company seminars have a variety of objectives: developing new skills (teamwork, innovative thinking), raising team awareness of certain company issues, developing a customer service-oriented attitude, integrating new employees, etc.

A company seminar allows employees to recharge their batteries, develop new skills or simply get to know each other better and prepare together for the months of activities ahead. 

How do you choose a venue for a company seminar?

Many organisations now hold company seminars. The venues available for corporate seminars are varied and offer different atmospheres. A corporate seminar venue can be very traditional, with simple work rooms, or more atypical, such as a château. In all cases, it is advisable to select a venue that offers all the services you need for a corporate seminar: meeting rooms, catering facilities, accommodation, as well as an outdoor environment where you can enjoy recreational activities without having to travel.

There are a multitude of venues. How to choose a venue for a company seminar that suits you?

First of all, to find the ideal venue, it's important to have defined the objectives of the event. Do you want to improve your company's culture or introduce your staff to new digital working methods? Clarifying your objectives will help you narrow down your choice.

Depending on the objective, the equipment required will not be identical. For a training seminar, you will need to pay particular attention to the equipment and organisation of the rooms. But for a motivation and team-building seminar, you need to select a venue with a large area to simplify the organisation of recreational activities, or even outdoors.

Depending on the location you choose, the atmosphere can be very different. If you're looking for an outdoor getaway, opt for a rustic and picturesque location in the countryside. If you want to go on an adventure with your colleagues, opt for an unusual location such as a sailing boat, a castle or even a yurt.

In all cases, it is important that the seminar venue you choose is consistent with the theme or objective of your seminar, as this will enhance its impact. Unless you choose a venue that is very faithful to your company's culture and values: innovation, quality of service, etc.
