Conferences can be varied and cover a variety of topics; such as academic, medical, business, and training. For a conference to be successful, meticulous planning must be done. Scheduling a date in advance ensures a smooth experience.
Business seminars are meetings usually meant to invoke the knowledge of a specific skill. With expert speakers and teachers invited to explain and simplify certain topics, seminars can be beneficial to a company’s growth. Workshops function much like seminars, but tend to have more hands-on and group activities.
Seminars require pre-planning to find speakers and experts within a typical field. Finding engaging speakers is crucial to making the event successful. With Stokely Event Center’s sound equipment, your event will be a breeze!

Incentive events can be beneficial for rejuvenating employee morale through interactive and inspirational activities. When workers get burned out, it’s important to reignite their passion for the work they do. By having a special day for employees to unwind and not think about work pressures, motivation can be achieved.

Charity functions are designed to gather donors for a particular cause and encourage their generosity. This type of event can be a great kick starter for media coverage and positive brand association. The most important aspect of a charity function is the ability to give to an important cause.
Charity functions are inherently set up well in advance in order to ensure donor schedules can allow for the time. Determining the particulars associated with a charity function; such as, whether food will be served, if there will be a dress code, or the type of entertainment are issues that need to be addressed early in the planning process.
Political parties can serve as a conduit for hopeful politicians or defending politicians to engage with voters. As with any other type of event, planning in advance is crucial to determine headcounts and verify that the venue chosen meets your maximum capacity.
