How to set up a conference

July 2, 2020 2:12 pm


A conference is a brilliant way of gathering together like minded individuals, and some with a different view to discuss a topic or series. The idea is that with everyone together listening, debating, and also socialising after the seminars, to some degree there will be an overriding consensus of a way to move forward. How do you plan for such a thing? One first idea is to have a Motivational Speaker UK based person like to come and inspire everyone.

The first thing to think about is the location and should it reflect the subject matter? For example it seems rather pointless to hold a conference about modern agricultural techniques in an urban environment when say an Agricultural College in the Summerbreak might be better. In some case a set aside conference centre is a good bet but why not look at some of the alternatives out there, a quirky site might spark some interesting ideas and debates.

Don’t be afraid to have fun. Make sure that it is not all serious issues otherwise the mood of the conference will dip. Let the professionals at the venue sort out the catering and room layout. Just be completely clear on what you want and when you want it.
