A group of PhD students and young researchers (where I belong) is preparing a symposium, a single day meeting, for other young researchers, PhD, master and students.
I don't have any previous experience with advertising this kind of events and I haven't received other advertisement, to an event similar to this one, than a place and a date with a link for more info. However, this was from a better known organization (and I get to know this organization through a friend) and our organization is not well known so I doubt this way would work to attract new people.
Which is the best way to increase registrations to the symposium? What information would you like to know before going for a registration or looking for more information?
Some important information I thought to include in a leaflet/ad:
- Place, dates, duration (done)
- Where to register and how much does it cost (done)
- Key speakers (At the moment we don't have confirmation of all the invited speakers)
- Sponsors and support (done)
There's a similar question question for a similar event, but I am in charge of advertising.
