Get your conference and events calendar sorted
Over recent months, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in travel and a growing number of enquiries for face-to-face event bookings. For conference organisers and people planning business events, these two factors converging mean now is the time to start planning your 2023 event, meeting room and conference schedules.
Schedules are fillling up fast
As well as an increase in bookings for event venues, people are also starting to schedule personal travel. This means it’s more important than ever to lock dates in early to ensure you can secure your preferred venue and your desired speakers. And, of course, the more notice you can give attendees, the better, especially as people are taking advantage of reopened borders to take interstate and overseas holidays, whether for business, leisure, or reconnecting with distant family and friends. With increase travel, locking in your business events schedule early maximises the opportunity for people to anchor their personal holidays plans around your event. Tourist arrivals have been consistently increasing over the course of 2022, with numbers inching closer to pre-pandemic levels. Planning and promoting your event now can mean better chances of attracting international speakers and driving registrations from a wider pool of potential attendees.
You don't have to do it alone
If it’s been a while since you organised a face-to-face event, especially a more significant event like a conference, it’s understandable to be feeling overwhelmed. There’s a lot to consider, which has escalated with a range of new expectations from attendees post-COVID. That’s why, as well as venues; Cliftons can offer a comprehensive event management service.
