We know it can be a daunting task, but with the right steps and preparations, it can be a successful and rewarding experience. Here are a few key points to help you with the planning process:
Define the purpose and objectives: Clearly outline the goals of the conference, who the target audience is, and what the key outcomes should be.
Determine the budget: Establish a budget for the conference, including costs for venue rental, speakers, food and beverage, marketing, and other expenses.
Choose a venue: Contact our friendly conference team and organise a viewing of our venue.
Select speakers and schedule: Identify potential speakers and create a schedule of events, including keynote speakers, panel discussions, and break-out sessions.
Promote the conference: Develop a marketing strategy to reach your target audience and create buzz around the conference. This could include creating a website, using social media, and email marketing.
Plan logistics: Make arrangements for audio-visual equipment, registration, transportation, and other logistics.
Prepare for unexpected events: Have contingency plans in place in case of any unexpected events, such as inclement weather or speaker cancellations.
Evaluate the conference: After the conference, take the time to assess its success and gather feedback from attendees to improve future events.
