Essential Tips For Planning A Conference

Trying to plan a conference in London is a huge task. There are lots of things to consider and an even longer list of things to action so we’ve created a checklist guide of the most important to give you a little helping hand when planning a conference in London.

1.Understand why

Before you start planning a conference it’s important to understand why you are putting on a conference. Focusing on the ‘why’ means you’ll be producing a meaningful and impactful event for your attendees.

2.Budget

As with any event, always keep the budget in mind, especially when it comes to hiring a conference venue in London. There’s lots of things to think about from AV to catering, and ticket apps to staffing so make sure you have a strict budget plan and work out how much you want to spend on each component of the event.

It’s always wise to keep a little extra budget available for any last minute costs, such as cleaning fees or late collection if you’re using a furniture or technology company. Be sure to run through the T&Cs for all suppliers and the venue so that you understand what you may be charged for. This may be something that you wish to negotiate so having all of the facts in the early stages of planning is important.

3.Date Management

When planning a large scale conference, giving your attendees as much notice as possible is key so we’d recommend diarising the date at least 6 months in advance. Make sure you have a list of the key attendees and provide them with two or three alternative dates to choose from. Once the date has been chosen by this group, make sure you send out a save the date so that you can continue planning the event safe in the knowledge that you will have attendees.

Until the date is confirmed, we’d suggest asking the venue to put a hold on the potential dates while you’re confirming the final choice. By doing so, you won’t have to worry about losing the best date for the event. Most venues are very happy to hold multiple dates for a short period of time, but it’s always best to check this as every Space is different.

4.Conference Venue

There are many different styles of conferences you can organise. Do you want a quirky conference or a more traditional one? Whether it’s an unusual conference venue in Shoreditch or a traditional venue in central London there are many benefits of both of these styles.

A quirky conference venue allows you to leave your own personal stamp on the event, hiring a blank canvas means you can completely transform the Space to fit your brand. The quirky and unusual venues are also great for making your conference stand out from the crowd so why pick a venue that’s completely different from anything you’ve ever used before.

If you’d like to keep things a little more traditional than there are lots of positive reasons to hire a more conventional conference Space, especially if this is a corporate event. Picking a venue that’s primarily used as a conference Space will also give you the added benefit of having a dedicated events team, which is always an event planning bonus.

5.Suppliers

There could be a very long list of suppliers that you will need to work with to make sure your conference is a huge success, but more often than not there are four key suppliers that every conference needs. These are staffing solutions, AV providers, furniture hire and catering. So make sure, as part of your event planning process, your suppliers are considered and carefully selected.

6.Invites, Tickets and Registration

Organising an event with a lot of attendees requires serious discipline around attendee registration and management. You want to know exactly who was at the event and what they engaged with while they were there. We’re all about technology at HeadBox which is why we’d recommend finding a digital solution, which can be accessed by all members of your team via an app or desktop when you’re at the event. The most common way to manage attendees in a situation like this is scanning e-tickets using an app on the door.

7.Post Event Feedback

Getting feedback from both attendees and staff who attended your conference is the key to any successful event. Try to get feedback during the event as well as the next day so you can get both live and reflective feedback from everyone. A pretty simple way of doing this is by sending out digital feedback forms to the registered email addresses of all your attendees. Sending digital forms are a much more efficient method as it will only take your Guests a few minutes to fill out and can be done from their phone, laptop or tablet. The easier you make this for your attendees, the more insight you will receive.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our handy HeadBox guide on all the things to consider when planning a conference. Now go find that perfect conference venue to hire in London and get started! We can’t wait to hear all about it.
