One of the more popular types of conferences in the world of business today is the educational industry conference. On a smaller scale, hosting a training seminar for your company or local office branch, is another great way to help increase the knowledge of your employees without sending everyone off to a large gathering. You can host business seminars at the local Milford conference hall and still get all of the educational training and experience you desire.
The Crystal Room Conference Center is a well-designed and well-planned event venue that can accommodate small and mid-sized gatherings, providing everything you need from audio visual equipment, high speed Wi-Fi, mobile device charging centers, food and beverage service, ample parking and much more. Our team of event planners and conference experts can help you make all of your plans to host business seminars, team building events or even corporate meetings within our conference rooms and meeting halls.
Location is Important
One of the biggest complaints that industry professionals hear when they are trying to plan an educational industry conference or other type of business event, is about the location. While most of your employees would probably like to head down to Florida for a conference, especially in the middle of a particularly cold winter season, but that is not always the best option with regard to time and financial considerations.
Staying local, while picking a location that is convenient to everyone can be a challenge. There are large conference centers in the Greater Boston area, but then you have to deal with all that big city traffic, costs and distractions. Bringing your employees to a convenient location that can be reached by all of Southeastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut is your best bet.
The Crystal Room Conference Center is located just a minute off of the I-495 and is very easy to find. More than just “another conference center,” The Crystal Room is a great venue for holding everything from corporate meetings to hosting a training seminar, facilitating team building exercises and host business seminars for industry professionals. We have all of the amenities that you could ever possibly need to pull off a successful industry meeting.
Take Time to Plan
While some businesses may decide at the drop of a hat to launch a training series for their staff, the more time you have to plan your event at the Milford conference hall, the better. Once you have chosen the venue, all you need to do is work with our in-house event planner to select the amenities that you need, as well as the menus for snacks, beverages and any lunches or dinners you want to plan.
Make sure to come out to the venue and walk the property with our staff to figure out how much space you will need and how it will all be set up for the educational industry conference or staff training seminars. Seeing it yourself first hand will help you to plan on everything else that you will need to have a successful event. Hosting a training seminar or business conference can seem overwhelming at first, but if you stay organized, it becomes a lot easier to keep under control.
Create a Schedule and Agenda
Whether you are hosting a training seminar that will just last a single day or you plan on a two-to-three day long educational industry conference, it is important to create a schedule. Printing an agenda for your employees or guests is a great way to make sure that everyone is there on-time and that everything goes according to plan.
Make sure to include personal breaks, snacks and meals in your schedule. Giving your guests a chance to eat lunch, network with co-workers or industry professionals, will help to keep everyone focused and on point throughout the rest of the day. Make sure to create opportunities between intensive meetings and training courses to give your employees or guests a time to rest and collect themselves before diving into something else.
Speak with the event planner at The Crystal Room Conference Center about setting up a mobile device charging center and giving everyone access to the high speed Wi-Fi connection when you host business seminars. If you let people check email and reply to text messaging between meetings, you will decrease the amount of people being distracted by smartphones and emails during the planned seminars.
