What is it?


An event is an activity planned and organized to meet the group members and people interested in a subject for the transfer of knowledge and experience, and where personal contact is key.


There are different types of event, depending on the objective, scope, size, attendees, and duration:

  • Congresses: Regular meetings (annual, biennial, etc.) that are usually linked to members of an association or entity. The approximate length of each one can vary from approximately two to five days.
  • Working Days: Similar to a congress, but smaller in scope and number of attendees. Its duration is approximately one to two days.
  • Conferences: Meetings used to convey a message or to share information on a particular subject. Must be of short duration to get the most attention from the audience.
  • Workshops: Activities that allow for exchanges between participants, which may include various kinds of practices and interactions between speakers and the workshop attendees. Its duration is approximately 3-8 hours and can be done within a congress or conference, or separately.
  • Seminars: Meeting where a particular topic is developed in depth. The duration varies according to the program (from 2 hours to up to 3 months with a certain frequency).
  • Other events are excellent venues for communicating the results and lessons learned from projects. They also facilitate networking and collaboration among implementing agencies, the MIF, project teams and their audiences.
