The report is written based on the International Association of Conference Management Education IACME’s tenth international conference. In order to prepare for a conference and manage it, an understanding of the different stakeholders involved is essential. Similarly, the impact on stakeholders and the intermediaries that would be assistive in promoting success for the conference and the suppliers and venue is presented here. The report addresses these concerns and shows how management should consider these pertinent elements when planning the tenth international conference.
A buyer in a conference setting would be a person who is concerned with buying the tool. In this case, it could be an educational software system to promote conference management, or other services in the context of conference management that will be put up by the IACME.
This conference is about presenting newer technologies. Some of the newer technologies that could probably be presented here in the conference are as follows. Standard microphones, image and video display equipment are included along with packages for more creative programs that are set up based on consultation. Easy to touch panel technology, multiple forms of internet access for conferencing from different geographic locations and more would be introduced here. The buyers in this conference would be those who seek value for money options. They would like to interact with other delegates, read the full conference report and have their own employees take up training sessions with the conference as part of their purchase packages. With sales people also coming into the conference to demonstrate their technology packages, it is very possible that the buyer would be able to directly place his orders at the conference itself if he wants to.
