Symposium, a tool to successfully plan your events

Symposium logo

Perpetuate and make good of an event (congress, forum, seminar, etc.)

An event's success is multifactorial:

  • Choice of the place, hosts, backers
  • Smoothness in the flow of the demonstrations
  • Targeted and efficient communication
  • Etc

It is the fruit of a reflexion to which the organiser must give all his energy. Besides, focusing on your core business is also learning to buy time on tasks with lesser added value.

Computer science and the automation of processes has already allowed for an efficiency increase in numerous domains. When it comes to event managing, it's about handling hundreds, sometimes thousands of participants who are more and more demanding in terms of content and prestations

For an event to be maintained over time, it is essential to convince the hosts (scientists, politics, etc) of its recognition and durability. Thus a satisfied host will communicate, come back, and will be a vector of notoriety and influence. The latter will allow you to sollicitate better hosts and so on.

IDCI-Consulting, in collaboration with the FOCAL service from the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, have looked into the subject and has answered this issue with the introduction of Symposium.
