Time is precious, but there are many benefits of holding a multi-day conference. Here are 3 reasons why you should invest your time in organising/attending a multi-day conference for your company.
Making connections take time
Research shows that the people who attend conferences attend for one of two reasons (or even both), educational opportunities and networking. Networking and making connections with people to then build relationships with them takes time. Typically, on a one-day conference full of traditional presentation sessions, the opportunities attendees will have to meet each other would be at lunch and a couple of short refreshment breaks. That is very little time to network. Adding the dinner, evening social, and breakfast of a single overnight stay doubles, at a minimum, the time for connection available for a one-day event.
Attendees who eat together, bond together
Academics may argue to whether the reasons are biological or cultural, but few people would disagree that we are all programmed to bond over communal meals. By adding just an extra half day to your one-day conference will add an extra refreshment break, perhaps an evening social with snacks, dinner, breakfast and lunch. That’s a lot more opportunity to bond.
Overnight leaves time for reflection
Providing an overnight stay during a conference facilitates the processing of experiences from the days’ events. Although we all appreciate time to consciously process our experience, there’s growing evidence that short-term memories are turned into lasting long-term memories during sleep.
