I wish conferences were not so complicated!

Running a conference can be one of the major activities for an association. It can also be a logistical nightmare!

Using the optional conferences module within Association Online, not only do you have more time freed up to organise the conference, you can manage those logistics more easily.

  • Set conference dates and venues
  • Call for papers prior to setting the conference program
  • Submit papers for panel review. Automatically add accepted papers to the conference program
  • Setup sessions, electives and alternative programs - including maximum capacities
  • Create marketing material like the conference flyer and speaker profiles
  • Setup price variations including sessions chosen, membership status and early registration specials
  • Release a special conference area for your website including promotion material and program details
  • Announce the conference on your home page
  • Members and contacts can register online until the conference is full - for all or selected days
  • They can book for other people, and can make group bookings
  • They can record their session, accomodation and catering preferences - based on what's still available
  • Invoices are created and payments made online, using the correct price variation
  • Release pre-conference material for attendees and the presenter
  • Updates can be automatically emailed to attendees
