Formats in the overview

Barcamp

A barcamp is an event format with open workshops, lectures and discussion groups, which are organised in respective sessions. The success of a barcamp is based on active participation. Every event is different and each event creates new and unforgettable impressions and experiences.

Fishbowl

In discussions with more than 20 people, it is almost impossible to get a word in without someone getting in the way. The Fishbowl is like a goldfish bowl and the participants sit around it in a circle and discuss. It is a great alternative to conventional panel discussions and can be made even more active if there is a subsequent exchange between the inner and outer circle. Finally, a defined group of observers gives feedback on the behavior and the effect.

World Café

In a World Café, people who are interested in a topic meet in an inviting coffee house atmosphere for an intensive exchange of thoughts, ideas and experiences. World Café offers the possibility to let a comparatively large group talk about a question. Pictures and sketches drawn on the tablecloths are also used. A World Café can be planned as an independent format or used as a method in a larger event.

Open Space

The Open Space format is used to discuss in large and small groups and to present complex questions or challenges. The focus is to achieve fast and action-oriented results within a fixed time frame. The agenda is created by the participants themselves, so that everyone has the opportunity to bring in their own topics and questions.

Warp Conference

The Warp Conference is all about a quick and direct exchange between many and various participants. It is similar to speed dating, because face-to-face conversations take place within the conference. The frequent change results in a varied dynamic and consideration of points of view on certain topics.

Speed Geeking

Speed Geeking is presentation in a fast format. In a strictly limited time, the speakers have to bring their topics to the point and present them with great enthusiasm. This is followed by a one-minute question and answer session that promotes dialog and conveys a lot of information in a very short time.

Pecha Kucha

20 slides with 20 seconds presentation per slide. This is exactly Pecha Kucha, or also known as format Ignite. The slides are precisely timed with a timer. Knowledge transfer in the shortest possible time with the focus on the essentials and ensuring that the speaker gets the full attention.

Science Slam

Knowledge and science are very close together at the Science Slam. Each speaker is given ten minutes to present his or her scientific lecture in such a communicative way that the subsequent applause rates it as highly as possible. Research and science projects are thus presented in a condensed form and have a certain battle character with high entertainment value.

Debate

To clearly work out different positions, to develop and exchange arguments, to come to one's own opinion and accept the opinion of the other. A pro-con debate represents a controlled exchange of previously elaborated arguments.

Recrutainment

Assessment meets Gaming: New employees can be found with playful ease. In classic selection procedures for new employees, there is little room for lightness and joy. It's about finding the right people for your company. Always with reference to the actual task, Recrutainment opens up the space for this.

Walking Break

Who actually dictates that business meetings must always take place indoors? The Walking Break or Brown Bag Session takes you out of the four walls of the seminar room - with a task and provisions in your luggage. During the walk you can discuss, create and decide. Inspiring tasks make it a completely new experience.

Thinkathon

Thinking marathon in a team. That brings Thinkathon to the point. Joint brainstorming and thinking as a team task to jointly develop solutions. The participants come from a wide range of industries and the profession is not important.

Future Conference

How do you create the future? This is the central question at the Future Conference. In a large group, a plan of action for a problem is developed jointly. This is especially important when different interest groups are involved in strategy formation and need to come to a common agreement.

Elevator Pitch

Idea presentation in elevator ride length. And in a maximum of three minutes. The Elevator Pitch is an entertaining interim format for conferences and networking events. The effort is minimal and the briefing of the participants requires little time.

Green Meeting

Sustainable corporate development in terms of Green Thinking is a must. The Green Meeting format holds a mirror up to companies in terms of how they think and act responsibly. The entire event, at best in accordance with the sustainability concept of the venue, is implemented and documented with this thought in mind. The Seminaris Hotels have already introduced a certified environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 in 2019.
