Conference Management

Our conference management service covers every aspect of your event: attending committee meetings, budgeting, financial management and reporting, venue management, program development, coordinating invited speakers, audio visual management, social functions, satchels, name badges and onsite coordination.

Registrations

We assist delegates with every aspect of their attendance: queries via email, phone or social media, processing registrations online or hard copy, issuing confirmation and tax invoices, accommodation bookings and destination information. By the time the conference comes around, we will know many of your delegates and almost certainly most of your presenters, if not by face, certainly by name and we take great pride in this personal approach.

Abstract Management

Conference Design specialises in abstract management from the distribution of Call for Presentations, submission of abstracts and papers, review, acceptance, program development and online or print publication. Our system handles the process and our team manages and supports each step.

Marketing

For each client we develop a strategy to maximise the attendance at your conference. In developing a strategy we evaluate likely competition for your target audience and the pricing structure of your conference. We then consider the cost/benefit of email and mail campaigns, web and print advertising, social media and promotional opportunities.

Content Management

Your conference is a key opportunity to engage with members before, during and after the event. It will create significant content and other intellectual property. Conference Design can capture and host the content, creating ongoing value for your organisation and extending the reach of the conference.

Web Development

Conference Design can design, develop and host your conference web site. Your web presence needs to engage, be dynamic, be informative and be continually up-to-date. Whilst a poorly executed web site will deter potential delegates, a well planned web strategy will maximise attendees, reduce your expenses and be self-funding.

App Development

A well crafted conference app will enhance the experience of attendees, increase engagement and save costs. On the other hand, a poorly executed app will waste your money and increase your workload. We provide a finished app solution, including populating content directly from the website. Another job ticked off!

Bid Assessment

When you are considering hosting a conference we can provide an initial assessment with a review of potential destinations, venues, accommodation, inbound travel and off-site requirements. We develop financial models based on worst-case, likely and best-case scenarios and identify any potential financial and contractual risks.

Sponsorship & Exhibition

We develop and manage all aspects of the sponsorship strategy for your conference: establishing sponsorship targets, creating packages that will engage the market, developing a sponsorship prospectus, sourcing potential sponsors, negotiating partnerships, working with confirmed sponsors and exhibition contractors.
