Com­pany con­ven­tions are a good oppor­tun­ity to gath­er the employ­ees of a com­pany. These events are essen­tial to rein­force com­mu­nic­a­tion but also cohe­sion between the dif­fer­ent employ­ees. The organ­iz­a­tion of a com­pany con­ven­tion requires time and pre­par­a­tion before­hand so that the event is a success.

Why have a corporate convention?

Organ­iz­ing a cor­por­ate con­ven­tion is a great way to spread a mes­sage to the participants.

In the past, a cor­por­ate con­ven­tion was used to bring employ­ees togeth­er to receive a mes­sage from the com­pany’s man­age­ment, but noth­ing more.

But nowadays, this pro­fes­sion­al event is a good way for the dif­fer­ent major act­ors of a com­pany to speak but also to exchange with the employ­ees on dif­fer­ent sub­jects. Most employ­ees appre­ci­ate these shared moments, espe­cially when these events end with a com­pany party.

Here are some of the advant­ages of organ­iz­ing a com­pany convention:

  • Improve com­mu­nic­a­tion between com­pany members
  • Motiv­ate employees
  • Rein­force the cohe­sion of the teams

Depend­ing on your expect­a­tions and object­ives, a com­pany con­ven­tion can take dif­fer­ent forms. Sev­er­al cri­ter­ia must be taken into account for the organ­iz­a­tion of a qual­ity event.

How to efficiently organize a corporate convention?

A pro­fes­sion­al event such as a cor­por­ate con­ven­tion requires spe­cial atten­tion on cer­tain points to make it a com­plete suc­cess. You want to organ­ize an excep­tion­al cor­por­ate con­ven­tion? Here are some tips to make your event a success!

Define the objective of your corporate convention

First and fore­most, it is neces­sary to set one or more object­ives related to the cre­ation of a cor­por­ate con­ven­tion. Based on these object­ives, you will know exactly who is involved. This will allow you to estab­lish a list of employ­ees to invite.

You can also con­sult your employ­ees to find out what their expect­a­tions might be for this type of event. A small intern­al sur­vey can greatly help you in the organ­iz­a­tion of your convention!

Choosing the right time for your corporate convention

The date of your event is cru­cial. It must be determ­ined in advance to allow par­ti­cipants to pre­pare and block their cal­en­dar. The choice of the date can also have an impact on the budget alloc­ated to your cor­por­ate con­ven­tion. Cer­tain times of the year are more priv­ileged than oth­ers to hold such an event. It is there­fore neces­sary to avoid large-scale sports or cul­tur­al events if you wish to have a max­im­um num­ber of people at your cor­por­ate convention.

Find the ideal place for the organ­iz­a­tion of the com­pany convention
The access­ib­il­ity of the ven­ue must be simple, both logist­ic­ally and for the par­ti­cipants of the cor­por­ate con­ven­tion. Choos­ing a ven­ue with easy access helps to ensure the pres­ence of a max­im­um num­ber of employees.

It is also import­ant to choose an event space that can accom­mod­ate all your guests. If an indoor activ­ity or anim­a­tion is planned, think about it to anti­cip­ate the space neces­sary for its good pro­gress. The city should offer accom­mod­a­tion options if your cor­por­ate con­ven­tion will last sev­er­al days. Deau­ville is a beau­ti­ful des­tin­a­tion for a cor­por­ate con­ven­tion on foot.

Company convention: what activities and entertainment?

In addi­tion to send­ing a mes­sage to meet your object­ives, the com­pany con­ven­tion is the right time to cre­ate links between employ­ees. Organ­iz­ing such an event requires plan­ning activ­it­ies or enter­tain­ment to enter­tain the dif­fer­ent participants.

Team build­ing activ­it­ies can take place if your object­ive includes team build­ing. In terms of anim­a­tion, it may be wise to call upon an anim­at­or spe­cial­ized in cor­por­ate sem­inars to effect­ively anim­ate your event.
