Conference and symposium are similar events where speakers come together and give their opinions on a chosen subject. In a symposium, experts give lectures on a single topic whereas in a conference, there is a discussion on several topics
Advantages of the Symposium is that it helps learners to get assistance to problematic themes and topics in various subjects from expert teachers. Disadvantage of the Symposium is that only a limited number of learners is allowed to attend. By Wilhelm P. Hango (Namibia)
To give vote of thanks for a college symposium function, there are key things to remember. You should mention people according to their position and the participation in the symposium. At the end of the speech thank all the people so that no one will feel left out.
