Five top tips for arranging a successful conference - Gibson Hall

Five top tips for arranging a successful conference

  1. location – finding the right conference venue in London can be tricky as there are so many options. However, focus on where the majority of guests are coming from and going back to, so it is easy for the guests. This should ensure you get the best attendance for your event.
  2. Offering something different – often easier said than done and appealing content can tip attendance levels. Outside of the conference content though do think about what your venue can offer as well. Is there a point of interest that can be spoken about or an activity that is unique and different?
  3. Feeding guests – we all need energy boosts when concentrating all day, so why not offer some interesting snacks with breaks like protein energy balls of cinnamon, spiced apple & date, coated in yoghurt or chocolate, coconut & pistachio, coated in dark chocolate, or some superfood lunch options to get people talking and energised?
  4. Audio visual and set up – talk to the experts, explain what you are trying to achieve and they will be able to advise you on the best way to do this; never forget to use their knowledge and experience,
  5. Ending the day – often guests can get extra benefit attending conferences by enjoying a networking session at the end of the day. Perhaps you could arrange some facilitated networking to ensure everyone comes away with a very positive and productive view of the day?
