1. Decide on a Theme
A conference shouldn’t only be a place for people to meet others in their industry. It should have a clear agenda and offer valuable content to the people who decide to attend.
The question is, what value can your conference provide to the people attending? Decide on what the theme of your conference is first and plan your speaker list and events accordingly. You want to provide content that is relevant to people in your industry.
2. Create a Budget
It’s easy to go overboard when planning a conference. You can end up spending more money than you can afford. In some cases, you may even lose money on your event.
Make sure you decide how much money to budget for your conference before you start the planning process. Doing this will help you decide on the most important things to invest in for your conference.
3. Build a Conference Team
You aren’t going to run a large conference on your own. There is too much to do, and not enough time in the day.
You should ideally find people who can run the parts of your conference that you don’t have much experience doing. Doing this will allow you to focus on the work you’re good at.
4. Find All-Star Speakers
Speakers are one of the main attractions for a conference. You aren’t going to have good attendance if you don’t have a speaker list that people want to hear from.
Make sure you line up your speaker list at the start of the planning process. The people you chose should be well known and respected in your industry.
5. Create a Website
It’s hard to advertise a conference if you don’t have a place for people to learn about it. Your conference website will allow people to do that.
Make sure to add as much information about your conference on your website as you can. Include the conference dates, nearby hotels, speaker list, events, and pricing.
You can also allow your attendees to purchase tickets on your website. There are many ticketing software packages available that make buying online a breeze.
