Organising a conference is a rewarding experience and a great way to network with the academic community. In addition it is an excellent platform to help build your academic profile and a network with common interests and research. Before you decide to organise your next conference you should know that it is no easy task and the time it takes is often underestimated.
If you are a conference organiser and struggling to find extra time we can help. Organising any meeting is time consuming, can be stressful and you must be ready to juggle a number of things at the one time. Programme logistics, speakers, finance, marketing, budgets and tickets are just a few things you will need to think about. Don’t worry we are here to help.
YouConfer.com is a purpose build platform for organisers and delegates to connect. How can YouConfer help you with your conference planning?
