The International Symposium on Foraminifera: FORAMS 2018 “Foraminifera in a Changing World”
This conference took place in June 2018 at the University of Edinburgh with workshops at the University of St Andrews.
Celia worked with Professor Kate Darling to advise on aspects of the event management process since Kate hadn’t organised a conference before.
We provided an on-line registration portal that was linked from the University’s conference page: http://forams2018.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk
This provided the facility for delegates to register for the conference, satellite meetings, social programme events and field trips.
Our team provided comprehensive reports including badges for printing, reconciliation against the bank, detailed breakdown of registration types and demographics, any special dietary and access requirements and any special requests.
We handled all queries including booking amendments, confirmation emails, joining instructions and post conference emails.
The conference achieved 442 registrations against a target of 300.
“On behalf of all convenors of Forams 2018, we would like to endorse the strong recommendation we received to use Celia’s team for our symposium registration. During the planning phases, Celia generously provided us with invaluable advice and perspective. She set up an excellent registration website and accommodated all our extra registration requirements. The complex registration was handled throughout with great professionalism and expertise, providing immediate response to queries and maximum support and guidance to deal with the more challenging issues. Delegate lists and final accounts were provided with great efficiency. Celia and her colleagues really delivered for us and we cannot recommend them more highly.”
