How to Make Your Next Conference a Success?

Aug 17, 2007
The conference and speaking industry has really taken off in the last few years as people are now seeking greater fulfillment in their lives. It seems that many baby boomers are now realizing the end of their work life is drawing to a close and many are seeking the help of self proclaimed experts on a range of subject matters that could help them to improve their quality of life. It seems that there is a conference or seminar on every topic imaginable ranging from personal growth, spiritual, self help, business or even career focused. And as a result speakers from near and far who are expert in these fields are flocking over to espouse their knowledge to the growing crowds of delegates happy to fork out sometimes thousands to listen to them.
Conference organizers therefore have the un-enviable responsibility of ensuring that both the conference speakers and delegates are well taken care of and the event run smoothly. A popular way to keep conference speakers and delegates happy is giving them gifts, after all no one can say no to a gift and the goodwill it conjures can leave a lasting positive impression for both the conference organizer and the event.

These gifts can include being presented with souvenirs as a token of appreciation for their contribution and their participation in an event. Moreover, these gifts are usually in the form of cultural pieces or hampers. However, most conference organizers often overlook the fact that delegates and speakers most likely have received many similar gifts from various other events. With this, conference organizers truly need to crack their heads in order to produce innovative gift ideas. Conference and event organizers are often looking to stand out and make their event leave a lasting memory in both the speakers and attendees minds. So coming up with an unique and original gift is a great way to stand out and be noticed.

Purchasing experiences and giving it away to someone as a gift isn't new but up until now you would have to do your own research into which company to buy the experience from and then trying to determine whether they were safe and reputable. In fact, activities such as a shark dive or a fighter plane ride will definitely create lasting memories especially for delegates who are visiting from a foreign country.

These innovative ideas are splendid for speakers or delegates who may be spending an extra free day to relax or to experience a bit about the local culture before flying back home.
