Tips on Planning Conventions
Conventions and other public events require a good deal of planning. Use these tips to help you choose the right convention services and facilities for your next event:
Tip #1: Don’t do it all by yourself. Planning a convention takes a lot of work. Not only must the facility be rented out, but meals must be planned, itineraries must be made, and if the convention is out of town, hotel rooms must be arranged. Many business owners and party hosts simply do not have the time in their day to arrange for all of these things. That is why it is essential to get help from a party planner or events coordinator.
Tip #2: Arrange a meeting with a coordinator during a quiet time. When you meet with your party planner or coordinator, make sure it is during a time of day when you can concentrate and dedicate yourself to the task at hand. Whether the planner was chosen by you to help plan a wedding, or is a representative of the convention facility where you are hosting your event, their purpose is the same. They want you to enjoy your event, and so will ask you for your input and decisions. Depending on the size and scope of the event, you may have to meet with the coordinator more than once.
Tip #3: Take advantage of special deals. One of the best things about using an event planner who works for a convention bureau is that they are often aware of special deals and discounts. Private planners may not be able to obtain the same discounts from local companies. Therefore, it is worth your time to work with the event planner.

Convention facilities can include centers, theatres, auditoriums, multimedia complexes, assembly halls, and business offices. Whichever venue you choose, convention services and facilities can help you meet your needs. Convention services and facilities staff can help you coordinate and plan your convention, and can suggest certain interior rooms that will accommodate your event, whether large or small. Convention services and facilities can also provide planning, managing the number of people attending, parking, loading, maps, directions, calendars, and floor plans. Some convention services and facilities are located in large modern complexes, while others are located in renovated theatres with dome architectures. Consider which type of venue would suit your needs best and target your search accordingly. Do you want a large complex or an older structure featuring elegant design? Don't forget to inquire about conference and seminar coordinators. These planning professionals can do everything from setting up hotels, reservations and destinations for speakers, to coordinating team building activities. Conference and seminar coordinators can negotiate rates and upgrades, give planning advice, put together business events, coordinate arrivals and departures of guest speakers, set up presentations, schedule meeting facilities, set up advertising products for viewing, and report to the management team. Some convention facilities have coordinators who work in house to work with you and help plan your event, making sure all goes smoothly. You can find convention services and facilities by looking in your local phone book or by searching online directory listings.
