Provide Detailed Guidelines
Making the process of submission as simple and clear as possible will yield both a higher number and better quality of applicants. The harder you make an applicant work to complete the required information, the more opportunity there is to lose them in the process, so it makes sense to be as brief and clear as possible while still getting the information you need.
Association conferences can be a beast to plan and execute. There are many factors that determine delegate satisfaction but one of the prime considerations is surely the quality of the program content presented. Securing high-calibre presenters via a well-executed submission process, you’re ensuring content is engaging, thought-provoking and relevant and you’ll keep delegates coming back year after year.
