Residential seminar: unusual places for an original seminar in Ile de France and Paris

In business management, the residential seminar is an indispensable tool. It can be small, medium or large, depending on its nature. The aim is to get the employees of a company to exchange ideas on a common project, in an external setting and outside the company.

Since the aim of a company seminar is to promote exchanges, to encourage employees to get to know each other better and to maintain cohesion within the company, the choice of the seminar venue is of prime importance.

Far from the muffled meeting rooms, combining business with pleasure is nowadays highly appreciated. Companies no longer hesitate to invest in rather unusual places for these corporate events in the Ile de France region, which are intended to be times of work, but also moments of relaxation and reunion between employees.
