The nuts and bolts of putting on your own conference
May 21, 2014
With the tools available online nowadays, it is very possible to put on your own small to medium size conference. Always keep in mind that the world wide web has a lot to offer. There are a ton of integrated online tools and systems that simply allow people to connect. Cyber space allows people to connect anywhere in the world, and to connect at the same real time. With technologies that have dashboards that have so much to offer, the experience of living in cyber space can also make you feel disconnected from humanity, and maybe eveen overwhelmed by the abundance of choice.
The real need for a conference comes down to a few basic benefits, however, benefits that are potentially the greatest fundamentals in building your business and future.
Relationships: Without the one on one interaction, you know the face to face time, not face time, human to human time!
Tools: Conferences empower connections in like minded industries, and conferences often have demo’s of tools and the latest releases. Demo’s are easily done, and questions are easily answered.
Networking: Online networking is powerful, but personal networking still holds the human link to it, and that is definitely a power to have. The personal feeling of being connected to each other.
Energy: At a like minded conference there is an energetic synergy. This change in environment, pace and thought process, can simply reignite, reengage and reestablish goals, visions, and passions.
If you put on your own conference, always keep the above basic points in mind. Ensure that there is a demand for your conference. That is key.
