Conference/Event Planning


Many associations are judged by the quality of their educational offerings and often rely on conference revenue to meet financial obligations.

ASSOCIATION CENTRAL understands the importance of working in partnership to provide strong administrative support in conference and educational planning and generating non-dues revenue. Our certified meeting professionals can assist in providing stronger, more dynamic conferences that meet your association’s objectives.

ASSOCIATION CENTRAL takes care of any or all of the conference needs to run a “top-notch” professional event from site selection, food and beverage coordination, obtaining audio/visual equipment to on-site management and much more. We work with your association on program development, agenda creation, developing and mailing conference brochures, and processing advanced registrations. During the event, we manage all event logistics, including event evaluations, program arrangements, on-site registration and distribution of materials for conference attendees.

After the event, evaluations are summarized, walk-in registrations are added to your event database and attendance certificates provided to attendees. All of these functions help assure your association is recognized as providing professional, high quality events.
