Blueprint for Success. . . A Manual for Conventions, Conferences, Seminars and Workshops.
Jax, John J., Ed.
Intended to provide the guidance needed for consistent and viable annual conference planning, this manual explains how to organize and plan for a successful and profitable conference, how to determine the responsibilities and duties of conference planners and coordinators, and how to plan for specific conference events. The responsibilities of a conference Board of Directors, and general policies on such issues as budgeting, programming, and registration, are discussed. The roles of the various committees, chairpersons, and coordinators involved in mounting a conference are outlined, including those concerned with programming, registration, exhibits, advertising, hospitality, and facilities and equipment. A conference planning flowchart, a detailed annual conference planning calendar, and a bibliography on conference planning accompany the text. Among the ten appendices to the manual are a sample conference evaluation instrument, a sample exhibit contract, an equipment and space needs form, a conference site checklist, and a conference survey instrument.
