HOST OUR EVENTS
WHO CAN HOST?
Any individual or organization that shares our organization’s values and goals and a commitment to arrange a small but essential local or international event may apply to host our event. The person and his/her/their team will need to have the strategic means (mostly human resources and available location) to organize a half-day conference day or a 1, 2- or 3-day conference for at least 40 participants. Our events can be linked to academic institutions, hotels, churches, for profit, and non-profit organizations and communities, although we are open to exploring other venues and situations.
WHAT DO WE DO?
United & Empowering Millions provides an experienced conference committee from our board that will support the local conference team. We have also developed a strategic event and conference manual to assist with the most common questions and practical issues and harmonize our different functions.
For the event itself, feel free to contact us for the United & Empowering Millions strategic events and conference manual for more information on United & Empowering Millions practical contributions to the conference.
WHY HOST OUR UNITED & EMPOWERING MILLIONS EVENTS?
As a conference host for the United & Empowering Millions, there are many reasons and advantages to holding an event. The short-term spillover effects of holding an event or conference are about positioning. For many hosts, the most important personal goals are to hold a conference that will provide a more specific and broader network, more exposure, spiritual and academic development. Your institution, organization, society or company will have an extra chance of positioning themselves for relevant entrepreneurs, innovators, health professionals, locally engaged political leaders, church leaders, partners and industry. The exposure as a conference host – undoubtedly – is high.
The long-term spillover effects of holding a conference include more industrial, international, academic and relevant assignments and new partnerships, better relations with the industry, more influence and positioning. Our research results show that hosting a conference has significant long-term effects. A critical awareness established around the values and the institution represented by the participants from all over the world who participates in the conference and the marketing and international exposure leading up to the meeting for at least three months and up to 18 months before it takes place. It is a great responsibility and a task to host a conference or event. And if you have the vision and desire, we at United & Empowering Millions will be happy to help you keep your next successful conference or event. We will help you invite your target group to the conference and offer you advice in regard to the practical handling of the conference and the marketing that should be in place before.
We encourage conference hosts to mobilize local resources to subsidize the conference costs and enrich our members’ conference experiences. Examples of local resources include university provisions for discounted on-campus housing, local government, and charitable organization grants to support conference programming, discounts at local restaurants, discounts at local Church cafés, discounts at bookstores, sponsorship of social events for conference attendees, etc.
Please note that the proposed conference manager ideally should reside in the city or nearby area of the proposed conference for the conference duration and be available at all times of the day.
The United & Empowering Millions meeting takes place over a half-day to 3 days, nationally and internationally all through the year. Our preference is for a half-day conference day or a 1, 2- or 3-day conference for at least 40 participants with an optional welcome, breakfast, lunch or dinner the day before; however, if you have a compelling reason for adding a day or two (or a portion of a day), the conference committee is open to the possibility of extending the meeting into a fourth and eve fifth day.
