A corporate evening event
Whether to celebrate a special occasion (such as a product launch or company anniversary) or host end-of-year festivities, organising an evening event is an opportunity for your teams to socialise and share a good time together. The evening might bring together a company’s workforce, an association’s members, or also include external guests (clients or partners for example). An evening do can be an event in its own right, or it could close another corporate event, such as a seminar or convention. Depending on the objectives and significance of the event, you could opt for either a laid-back, casual atmosphere or a more prestigious tone for a gala evening.

A hybrid event
A hybrid event takes place on-site (at the physical venue) and virtually, via digital tools (Internet, social media, etc.), at the same time. Emerging during the pandemic as a solution to minimise gatherings, it is an effective way of reaching out to a broader audience and engaging with target groups who are far away. Congress, trade show, product launch or seminar... all kinds of corporate events can be held in a hybrid fashion.

A convention is an event that brings together a company’s workforce or part of it (sales reps, managing directors, etc.), specialists within a particular field or occupation or members of a learned society or association. Usually held once a year or every two years, the convention may take place over one or more days and be attended by a few hundred participants. Sometimes theme-based, a convention is typically a time to take stock and above all set a clear course of action for the community gathered.
