Where to organise a team building seminar?

What is the ideal location for a team building seminar?

Preparing a team building seminar requires excellent organisation in order to satisfy all the participants while achieving the objectives set by the company. Indeed, the venue, activities, catering and accommodation must be defined according to your objectives and your budget. Here are some tips and parameters to take into account to ensure that the team building seminar runs smoothly.

Organise a team building seminar in a suitable location

The choice of venue for your team building seminar is very important, as it must meet a number of conditions to ensure that your event is well organised.

From a rational point of view, the location of your seminar must be ideally situated in order to limit travel. It is therefore necessary to choose a strategic geographical location according to the participants' place of origin. Prefer establishments that are easy to reach by any means of transport (car, train, plane).

From a more subjective point of view, you should also choose a venue that corresponds to the image of your company: classic, traditional, modern, even innovative...

Be sure to take into account the standing of the establishment in your choice, as this is also a message you are sending to your teams. Thus, the venue for your team building seminar should not look too chic, and therefore expensive, or on the contrary, be seen as a rather "cheap" event in the eyes of the guests.

How to choose the venue for a team building seminar?

To choose the venue for your team building seminar, it is necessary to define the duration of the event. Indeed, organising a one-day team building seminar does not require the same budget and logistics as a stay that includes accommodation.

Similarly, it is strongly advised to calculate the maximum distance or travel time to the venue for the team building seminar. Knowing this kind of detail will help you refine your search for the ideal venue for your team building seminar.

You should also define the number of participants invited to your team building seminar. This will allow you to determine a total budget and the approximate budget per person.

Choosing a suitable venue for team building seminars

Defining the exact number of participants for your team building seminar also allows you to choose a venue with sufficient capacity. It is very important not to feel lost in a space that is too large or cramped, with the risk of being too close to other company groups.

It is also preferable to choose a place that combines work, catering, accommodation, leisure and relaxation activities. This makes it easier to organise the various activities during the stay and to optimise time by eliminating travel time.

Using a single establishment for the entire organisation of your team building seminar also reduces the likelihood of encountering problems and unforeseen events during your stay.
