For IT and cybersecurity businesses, holding conferences and events is a great way to connect with other like-minded companies and industry leaders, build partnerships, and share knowledge. Hosting these conferences can help businesses expand further into their industry and reach new markets, making this a significant task. The task of planning and hosting a conference beginning to end may appear daunting, however. How do you get started? How do you make sure every detail is accounted for?
Katzcy offers conference planning services to our clients. We help our clients plan every aspect of a conference or event to ensure success. Armed with in-depth knowledge of the IT and cybersecurity fields, we ensure we plan and prepare engaging, exciting, and enriching conferences on behalf of our clients to ensure they earn a high ROI and further brand recognition.
We can handle every factor of the conference-planning process, including:
- Research: Before planning a conference, it is crucial to conduct research to help you gauge industry interest, expected attendees, and topics of focus for your conference. We will conduct extensive research of your industry to help identify key news, topics, or practices your conference should be centered around. We will also help gather demographic information of expected attendees, budgeting information, ideal dates, and more to get you started on the right foot.
- Contract Negotiations: Planning a conference involves several contracts with third parties, between choosing and booking a venue, arranging catering, ordering necessary equipment such as microphones, and much more. Our team will not only help you understand your various contracts but negotiate the best price and services possible.
- Annual Budgeting and Planning: Conference or event planning requires you to develop a realistic and strict budget to see the even through to the end. This can be a challenge, especially if you have many factors to consider and/or if the conference repeats on an annual basis. Katzcy is here to make budgeting and planning as straightforward as possible, so you can focus on hosting a great event.
- Procurement: Conference planning goes beyond just securing a venue and creating an event agenda. You must also procure a wide variety of goods and services to support your event. You must request catering, buy or rent furniture such as booths or chairs, purchase or rent equipment such as microphones or lighting, hire services such as waiters or a DJ, and so on. Katzcy will help you make the best purchases and secure your orders to ensure your event is a success.
