Consider a Conference Website for a Professional Edge
- Category: Blog
Holding a conference? A conference website can cater for all of your needs and give attendees a dedicated space to register and find out more.
While it may seem excessive, a website built just for a conference has many merits. Namely, it gives bandwidth and space to the entire event without it being shadowed by being built into another website. This means that it is a speedy and fully responsive website to fulfil all of the needs and queries that attendees and potential attendees might have.
To register for the conference, you can have a form built into the conference website to take payments and reserve a place for those looking to attend. This form can do quite a lot of legwork for you. It can be set to automatically contact those who register for a place with an e-mail stating their confirmation, receipt and any required reference numbers or attachments to print to act as their ticket for example. Alongside this, the form can be customised to display when all places or full or to show an alert when less than one hundred places are left etc.
A conference website is a rare instance that benefits from offering PDF downloads to its visitors. Once the conference agenda is finalised, it can be added as a PDF download to the website for people to view. The website itself can display the location and times of the conference and add a reactive Google Map for example to this effect. A page/section can also be built to feature each of the speakers and events at the conference. Having a full conference website gives room for each facet of the conference that requires space such as the previously mentioned points in tandem with the likes of information about the host company/organisation and whitepapers and articles in relation to each talk and event.
Visitors to conference websites are often impressed that an entire website has been dedicated to the cause. This shows to them that the organisers and the conference itself is not a simple one-off event, but rather a meticulously planned and organised event that justifies its cost and justifies you making the time to attend it. This also relays a quality of care to those who visit the website – it shows that the conference has appointed staff and resources available to it and is not a money-grabbing afterthought of those who are organising it.
