June 13 | 2:00pm ET

Perhaps you have been asked to lead the planning and execution of a campus-based professional association conference or maybe you are newly overseeing an established team of conference and event managers in your auxiliary services unit. In either situation, you may find yourself curious about where to begin when it comes to what it takes to plan a successful meeting, conference, or event.

This webinar will provide an overview of the critical steps in planning and executing an event from beginning to end, or "soup to nuts" as you may have heard a planner say casually when referring to their craft. Using a case study approach to examine three common scenarios – a multiple-day campus-based conference, a presidential visit to campus, and a board of directors meeting or retreat – attendees will gain an understanding of the full breadth of details that are behind managing meetings, conferences, and events successfully. From budgeting, emergency planning, and post-event assessment to catering, accommodations, and transportation coordination – this session will endeavor to provide you with a roadmap for future success in planning meetings, conferences, and events in a collegiate environment.
