Any conference needs a great programme, good speakers and an engaging range of activities for delegates and attendees. However, the location is also essential to a successful conference. Without a good location, people won’t be able to come, and if they do, they might not stay for the whole programme.
Here are some of the prerequisites of a successful conference:
- Enough space for the number of people attending. You will need space and comfortable seating to make the conference comfortable.
- Good networking opportunities. People will decide if they’re attending a conference based on the other people who are going. Make sure you advertise any key speakers and people who will be exhibiting there.
- Accessibility. The building needs to be easily accessible for all, and there need to be the right facilities for people with mobility requirements, such as accessible toilets. It also generally needs to be easy to reach, with good parking or public transport close by.
