Division of Continuing Studies Conference Services

Truly memorable events rely on a “choreography” that guides you and your guests naturally and comfortably through the entire experience. Let our planning and coordination experts make your event delightful–for you and your guests.

Planning

Audience Assessment

Before investing time and money into an event, let us gauge potential audience demand. This assessment can range from interviews with key decision makers over a few days, to a more formal, structured survey of potential participants and market players.

Site Scouting, Contract Negotiation & Logistics

Successful events require both detailed management of logistics and creative ideas to keep participants engaged. We’ll create timelines for event success, evaluate sites, review and negotiate contracts, and plan and support your facility needs.

Marketing Planning & Execution

Rutgers Division of Continuing Studies welcomes the chance to help you identify high-impact, cost-effective strategies to reach your target audience. All clients are entitled to a free initial marketing planning and budgeting discussion.

Setup

Online Registration & eCommerce

24/7 online registration is available along with phone, mail, fax and on-site registration services. eCommerce web hosting and credit card acceptance are also available.

Materials Assembly & Distribution

For administrative staff, finding the time and space to assemble and transport 50, 150 or 500 binders or folders disrupts the workweek and saps morale. Let us do that heavy lifting for you–and for them.

Technology

Instructional Technology & On-Site Support

Technology can take your event worldwide through live video streaming; it can customize the experience through instant audience polling, or it can foster simple human connections through social networking. We’ll help you think beyond PowerPoint.

Program Videos & Evaluation Tools

You can memorialize your event with candid footage that captures the moments, people and highlights that make your event distinctive. We can also help document program outcomes with instant polling and electronic evaluation tools.
