Post Conference | Print |

End-of-conference tasks, while often overlooked, are very important. Start by settling all of your accounts. It is especially important to clear up the conference finances in the first few days after a conference by making a balance sheet and writing a financial report.

Post-conference debriefing of staff members is important to do soon after the conference so that all the positive and negative aspects of the conference are fresh in the staff's minds. Compile everyone's feedback and assess each aspect of the conference. A good scenario for debriefing is as follows:

  • Invite everyone who was involved in the conference
  • Address even the smallest concerns
  • Agree to follow-up on discussions to assure that these concerns do not arise at future events
  • Assign tasks to your staff and ask them to oversee improvement efforts
