4 key points for a successful seminar in Geneva

Regardless of the location of the seminar in Geneva, it is imperative that the meeting room(s) be comfortable and large enough for the participants and the type of activity planned. If small group meetings are necessary, for example, there must be enough space for them to work and participate independently of each other.

Now is the time to set the perfect date for your seminar. The different date options should be carefully evaluated to ensure that guests are not unavailable.

You will need to choose a date when the majority of participants will be available. Avoid periods when your target audience is likely to be on vacation, or holidays and national holidays.

Before setting a final date, it is also important to ask participants if they are available.

Indicate the exact content, where you will get the information, who will give it and how it will be presented. Include a program or agenda, with start and end times for each part of the seminar.

Don’t forget to include breaks. Write a list of the materials you will need, such as course materials, a workbook, and the speakers you will invite.


Dining room :

If your seminar includes lunch or dinner, please ensure that the room is large enough to accommodate the number of participants expected.

Food options :

Make sure that the caterer or restaurateur offers at least two different choices of dishes (see a vegan alternative). If you make an extra effort to accommodate your guests’ eating habits, you will improve their overall comfort and well-being.

It’s necessery to use technology to maintain the interest of the participants. In today’s digital world, most people are used to seeing graphics or videos to support the words they hear. Appeal to this mindset and incorporate audio-visuals into your meeting planning.

Widescreen computers, applications such as Kahoot (an online application for generating interactive quizzes or quizzes) and Smart Board presentations that encourage interaction are a welcome change from the usual long PowerPoint presentations.

Be sure to test the technology first. The last thing you need is to get upset because the laptop doesn’t work or you can’t review your visuals when you need them. If technology isn’t your forte, ask someone else to try it out before the seminar.

This is one of the most important parts of planning a seminar or conference. Attention to detail will help you avoid financial setbacks, so it is imperative not to under or overestimate costs.

If you have available funds specifically allocated to your event, you can bypass this budget. Otherwise, you must first forecast the costs and then determine how much you need to raise to cover everything.

Here are some of the things you can include in your fees:

  • Venue rental
  • Event marketing
  • Hospitality Expenses
  • Refreshments
  • Seminar materials
