What does a conference organiser do? Do you need one to plan your next conference, seminar, exhibition or annual meeting?
A great conference organiser or event manager takes a project on behalf of a client and manages it as if it were their own personal project. Passion, pride and great attention to detail, as well as a strong work ethic are personal strengths needed to excel in the events industry.
Any event, whether it’s a conference, product launch, seminar, incentive travel event or exhibition is an incredibly involved project, often taking hundreds of hours of a client’s time to manage. That’s why many organisations benefit from the services of professional venue finding and event management companies such as The Conference People.
The responsibilities of the conference planner can include venue booking (finding and booking the best conference venue), negotiating the best rates, event travel arrangements, event administration (online delegate management and registration).
Additionally, event budgeting, speaker liaison, exhibition sales and onsite management all add to the conference organiser’s role.
Finding the right venue for an event is perhaps the most important and demanding duty. An experienced event organiser can help narrow the selection of venues and find the exact hotel, conference centre of unusual venue to meet your needs. The Conference People have a fantastic conference room capacity calculator available to help you visualise the size of room required for your plenary session or workshops.
Another factor for many annual conferences and corporate events is travel arrangements. Whether you are planning a regional meeting or a major product launch, staff, employees and clients may need to travel to the event. A professional travel service can assist you in making both accommodation and travel arrangements for the attendees. Travel arrangements can include travel by air, rail or car, as well as parking and local transport. In keeping with The Conference People’s mission to reduce the carbon footprint of any event, the conference organiser will offer advice on how to make travel arrangements more sustainable.
An understanding of event production and audio visual requirements for a conference would be useful in your search for a career as an event planner or conference organiser. The Conference People produce jaw-dropping conference sets for very competitive prices. Understanding terminology such as front and rear projection, lapel mics, hearing loops and simultaneous translation is required for event managers to help clients demystify the event experience.
A career in the events industry is exceptionally rewarding and exciting. Details will appear on this site when opportunities arise at The Conference People.
