Definition:

Corporate meetings are those business-oriented meetings in which the participants represent the same company, corporate group, joint-venture, or client/provider relations.

Comments:

A corporate meeting generally has the following characteristics: it is not organised by an external organisation; the aim of the meeting is governed by the realisation of business and not mainly by the transmission of knowledge ; the number of companies represented is normally small, whether intra-firm (one single company) or inter-firm (two or more companies); interaction between participants is either non-competitive (no competition, since they belong to the same group), or the competition (if there are tensions within the group) is regulated in an oligopolistic manner (few enterprises are present).
