Conference co-ordinators


We are curretnly looking at the possibility of running an international conference in the UK in the summer of 2005. This will require a conference co-ordinator and significant funding.
Does anyone have any ideas where we could go to find such a co-ordinator, who could possibly also reseach funding of the event as part of their remit?

  1. can I help?
    I am a freelance consultant who has organised conferences in the past. You probably don’t need a full time person and if you contract a “company” you will have little guarentee of continuity. Depending on the size of event you are planning one co-ordinator on a part time basis will probably suffice until the actual conference itself when the co-ordinator could bring in associates (I have done it this way before)
    Please feel free to contact me on 07812 170391 if you would like an informal chat

  2. conference co-ordinators
    Having previously done this sort of work before for the BPS Women & Psychology some years ago I strongly agree with Russell. I also found that it helped to have a colleague to “job-share” with. We did it on an expenses only basis because of the type of organisation involved. In another case I also generated and increased the revenue with a publishers book fair. I’d be happy to work with you on this if you want. My email address is

  3. International Conference
    Hi Mary
    My business partner and I have both worked for VSO and have experience of setting up international conferences. We may also be able to assist you with funding sources if we know the purpose of the conference. However our real area of expertise is in structuring and facilitating international meetings, but maybe you already have that in hand?
    If you think we could be of any help please feel free to email us at
    Best wishes

  4. Themed Conference Support

    My company specialises in the provision of themed conference events and seminars.

    One of our most popular themes may interest you. We are able to design a fully produced and choreographed event incorporating a themed conference that uses the analogy of The Beatles and their extraordinary journey and history to illustrate how a positive attitude and an appreciation of others can help us along the pathway to success and to achieve our dreams.

    For more information, please visit our website at or contact me to discuss your requirements.
