Have you ever found yourself in the awkward position of been given the monumental task of organizing a conference, which entails a to-do list about a mile long?
There is the conference venue, the guest list, the materials, the technology and even the refreshments to think about and plan. If you are beginning to regret this new-found confidence your boss has in you to pull this off, slow down, take a breath, and contact Askari Lodge!
Without a professional conference venue, you have to consider the following:
Choosing the right venue
Choosing the right hotel for an upcoming conference event is one way to make sure the attendees get the most from the meeting. Ideally, the hotel you choose will have plenty of meeting space for classes and sessions as well as an area that is large enough for different types of conference exhibits. By making sure there is enough space to accommodate both the activities and the attendees, you set the stage for an event that will benefit everyone involved and allow the conference to truly be a success.
Consider the amount of space needed for the conference exhibits.
Think in terms of the number of vendors or other organizations that may be asked to exhibit, and focus attention on hotels that offer a large enough area for this portion of the event. The space may be in the form of 1 or more conference areas that allow easy access to each of the exhibit booths. Also inquire about the availability of power and wireless hookups for each of the exhibits and displays.
Rather than running yourself into the ground trying to organise everything, consider this; Askari Game Lodge provides excellent conferencing facilities, dedicated staff and superb cuisine set in a tranquil bushveld environment, steeped with history.
