With our blend of expertise in the hospitality field and a friendly approach, we’re here to guide you through planning the perfect multi-day meeting.

Starting with the Basics: The Blueprint of Success Multi-day event 

The foundation of any successful multi-day meeting lies in its planning phase. This involves setting clear objectives, understanding your audience, and crafting an agenda that keeps participants engaged from start to finish. Begin by asking yourself what you want to achieve with the meeting. Is it brainstorming for new ideas, team building, or training? Once your goals are set, tailor your agenda to meet these objectives, incorporating a mix of presentations, workshops, and break-out sessions to keep the energy levels high and encourage participation.

At Norwood Conference Center, we understand the importance of flexibility in meeting spaces. Our rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and can be configured to suit any type of gathering, from intimate workshops to large-scale presentations. Moreover, our team is always on hand to ensure that your technology needs are met, from high-speed Wi-Fi to audio-visual support, allowing you to focus on delivering content that resonates.

Beyond the Meeting Room: Fostering Connections over a multi-day conference

One of the unique benefits of multi-day meetings is the opportunity they provide for networking and team building. It’s not just about the sessions themselves but also about the interactions that happen in between. To facilitate this, consider incorporating social activities into your agenda, such as team dinners, outdoor team building on our pavilion, or even a casual get-together in one of our lounge areas. These moments allow participants to connect on a personal level, fostering a sense of community and collaboration that can greatly enhance the productivity of your meeting.  Our talented catering team is on hand to assist with menu design, entertainment and more!

As an IACC certified conference center, our spaces are designed to encourage connections. The unlimited morning and afternoon coffee breaks that are included in your complete meeting package are served in a common lounge space, equipped with tv, seating and additional workspaces with plenty of chargers. At lunch, attendees will gather to enjoy an expansive chef selected buffet while they catch up.

At Norwood Conference Center, our array of amenities, from gourmet catering options to leisure facilities, are designed to complement your meeting agenda. Whether it’s a coffee break with a selection of artisanal snacks or a formal banquet, our culinary team provides meals that delight and energize your guests.
