Our Top Tips For Hosting A Conference

Conferencing is a great way for people to network and interact, resulting in long term business relationships. At Goosepool House we have a range of event spaces to cater for your requirements and a wonderful team who will ensure your event goes off without a hitch! In this blog we will discuss some helpful tips for planning and executing a conference with us at Goosepool House.

Hosting a conference for your employees, colleagues or peers is often a daunting yet essential task when creating an environment of teamwork and cooperation.

Plan In Advance

Regardless of the size of your conference, planning should be made as early as possible. As much as a few months in advance is adequate if you are thinking about a large-scale conference, but smaller events also need time to place all the puzzle pieces in the right place.

Our advice is not to leave less than 6 months before the actual event. Our team at Goosepool House are always on hand and more than happy to provide you with guidance and advice throughout the process.


Conferences tend to vary a lot in size. In the planning stage it is recommended to decide what sort of event you would like to organise, how many participants, how many speakers, the length of the conference, etc. Deciding on the number of attendees early in the planning process is beneficial as it allows time to confirm eating arrangements and how much seating you will require.

In terms of catering for your conference, Goosepool have in-house catering to provide a range of food for any taste. We can also provide a variety of beverages upon request for breaks.

No matter how many guests you require, Goosepool have got you covered! Our parking facilities are the perfect size for a large number of cars/vehicles. In addition to this, there are many hotels nearby which are perfectly located for delegates travelling to the conference.

Get Equipped!

Organising all of the equipment you will be needing is also an essential part of conference planning. Some of the items you may need include…

  • Laptop
  • Projector
  • Microphone(s)
  • Notepads
  • Pens
  • Banners/Posters/Entrance Flags
  • Goodie Bags
  • Name Badges

When planning an event such as a conference, it is important to unite all of the elements to ensure cohesion and a good flow. The tone of your conference should be an extension of your brand and industry, and should reflect your wider values, promises and vision. Setting clear objectives around what you hope to achieve from a conference will help you tremendously in creating a productive environment.
