About the book

So, you've been given a conference to run. Whether it's part of your job or you are a complete novice, you will only get one chance to get it right. It is a 'live' event, which cannot be re-run.

But don't panic. As with most organisational projects, there is a formula you can use and a sequence you can follow to minimise the risk of failure. This revised and updated edition of How to Run A Successful Conference shows you how. John G Fisher gives clear and practical guidance on how to manage, in the right sequence, all those who contribute to the success of a conference, from the service providers to the speakers. He gives sound advice on everything you need to consider, such as:

the objectives of your conference;

building the budget;

finding the right venue;

when to bring in the professionals;

event management and logistics;

organising accommodation;

food and drink;

going abroad;

using technology.

You'll also find advice on how to assess the success of your event.

If you've just been given the task of running a conference, don't even think about it until you've read this book.
