Have good content
A good conference is built around content and before doing anything else you need to have a clear idea on what you are going to focus on. Do some research on the subject matter that interests the people coming and talk to a few people to get an idea on what you should include. Once you have an idea set a theme, this can be as precise or vague as you want but make sure that it’s something people would understand and enjoy.
Lodging, transportation and food
Most conferences last more than a day and people come from far and wide to take part do as the organisers you have the responsibility to make sure that the attendees are comfortable enough to enjoy the event. Most conferences are hosted in hotels since there is the option of logging and food already available and there’s no need to worry about getting them. However, this is not always the case. If your conference is happening elsewhere make sure you plan out where people are going to stay and organise that aspect as well.
Include something fun

Having a party or a dinner or something simple like getting a photobooth Singapore can add something to your event that people will enjoy.
Think in their shoes
