Company seminars are strategic management tools that serve human relations. They offer many benefits: recharging participants’ batteries in a different setting, boosting participant motivation, providing a stage for open, transparent communication about your company, supporting and valuing your employees, etc.
Today, seminars are adapting to address the new strategic needs of the companies holding them. Depending on their objectives, some will be looking for an unparalleled venue, others for team-building activities, and still others, a different experience that will leave a lasting impression.
In this article, you will find out about some of the new trends in seminar planning, including Event Day at Stade de France.
Hold a seminar that reflects the your company’s identity
Companies are transforming, changing – and want to develop their corporate events in that dynamic!
Currently, the trend is towards more informal seminars in search of meaning, in less “traditional” locales, so as to unlock participants’ creativity, create synergies and develop the teams’ agility. Some third-venues or co-working spaces have become highly-coveted in this respect. They echo companies’ new head offices: more flexible and less anchored.
As to team-building activities, they remain a high point of the event. In addition to being fun, it is important that they reflect the host company's DNA. We have put together an article on the topic, to help you find the perfect activity for your next team building experience.
When it comes to new meeting formats, the organisers of company seminars are looking to shake up employees long-engrained practices. For example, walking meetings around the pitch of a Stadium or in a forest have caught on with many brands. They boost creativity, and foster communication and well-being in your teams. Apple and Facebook are just two examples of companies that have opted for this original alternative to traditional meeting rooms!
The offer is developing, and some event locations now offer products that go beyond just the basic seminar; this is the case with Stade de France.
