The payment service provider PayPal is withdrawing from the Russian market due to the war against Ukraine. Conference organizers should therefore be prepared for problems, provided that participants from Russia can also register. What considerations should be taken into account? And what should happen with registrations from Ukraine?
Online registration for your conference has started but it’s only on rare occasions someone comes across the website and even more rarely, someone actually completes the registration process.
Maybe you should have advertised it a bit more?
Our tips are here to prevent you from being greeted by a yawning void and will let you in on the art of enticing more people to attend your conference.
You’ve already used your event’s social media accounts to share a few things. Now that your attendees are about to arrive, it’s important to get the conversation going and live up to their expectations. If you follow our advice for successful online communication, you’ll never run out of ideas during and after your event.
Setting up a LinkedIn group or a Twitter account for your event can be helpful. But if that isn’t followed by regular updates to enrich your profiles, you’ll probably wait in vain for your attendees to be proactive and share their experiences with you and others.
In order to benefit from using social networks, you need a detailed strategy. We’ll help you start your online channels off right and explain how they can make it easier to stay in touch with your attendees over the course of the event.
Lots of authors have responded to your call for papers.
That’s good news. Don’t let them be overshadowed by less pleasant ones like the fact that no one really knows anymore which papers were accepted or rejected. It’s always better when both the abstract submission and the reviewing process are well-organized.
This works best with an abstract management system and that’s why we’re now going to take you through the essentials of such a system.
Resource-efficient meetings are the best.
Resource-efficient sounds like a lot of work though. Planning to transform an event into a green meeting usually means changing loads of things after all.
Unless you work with an event management software. Then greening your event will be less work instead of more.
