Deciding to host business seminars at a local New England conference center means taking time to establish goals and create a game plan.

From holiday parties to annual budget meetings, expos, training seminars, educational workshops, and industry events, there are a lot of options that can be held at a conference center in Milford, MA. The number of guests, the goal for the event, the featured presentations, or entertainment provided, and the length of the gathering itself can help to identify the type of event that you are hosting.

Business Seminars

Typically smaller than a full-scale business conference in Massachusetts, companies that host business seminars can attract groups of 25, 50, or more, depending on the target audience. You might hire a professional speaker to address your local or regional employees, offer education to statewide staff at an annual gathering, or invite others from within your overall industry to attend. Seminars should be headlined by a well-known, reputable speaker, such as an industry leader, company executive, or even a published author who has experience working directly with your type of business. Seminars can be a one-and-done single-day event or can spread out over a couple of days. Some seminars become a series and go from city to city, offering opportunities to attendees throughout the Greater New England area and across the country.

Training Workshops

This type of event involves specific education and training on a particular topic. Many different industries can benefit from this type of event at our New England Conference Center. Sales techniques, marketing skills, advertising and promotions, customer service, company branding, new technology – the sky’s the limit when it comes to the things that can be included in a training workshop. In fact, multiple topics within the same general theme can be offered when you host training workshops at a conference center in Milford, MA. This will help you to broaden the options for potential attendees and increase the value of your workshop event. You can target employees within your own organization or expand your audience to include other like-minded individuals within the same genre.

Mini Expos

Typically designed for groups of 100-150 or less, the Crystal Room Conference Center in Milford, MA, has everything you need to host business seminars and mini expos of this scale. Free Wi-Fi for you and all of your guests, mobile device charging stations, and a full high-tech audiovisual department can help you to achieve your goals.

Company Conferences

A conference can also include meetings for board members, employees, and other interested parties, as well as offer updates on the status of various projects, legal cases, and anything else that supports the business, industry, or trade. Guests might come from the local Southcoast area or travel across the country to attend, depending on your target audience.
