From time to time, it becomes necessary to attend conferences of some kind. Most people do something like this for work-related reasons. However, there are other kinds of conferences as well. In fact, there can be any number of conferences occurring at any time. The subject of those conferences can vary since there are any number of issues people consider significant now.

Of course, conferences, no matter the subject, generally need certain tools that can make spreading their message easier. One such tool is conference flyers. Flyers are an effective tool for advertising purposes. This is thanks to their ability to convey most important information all at once. Of course, there is more to flyers than simply being useful.

What Are Conference Flyers?

In marketing, flyers make for excellent tools, as they can easily be mass produced and distributed to large numbers of people. This is an alternate marketing strategy compared to using advertising like billboards. Using flyers allows an organization to perform more ground-level marketing and target people more directly.

  • For business, using flyers can make it easier to market a company’s basic offerings and address.
  • In the case of conferences, there are similarities, as it is also possible to list their times and places. However, some of the details do differ.

How Are Conference Flyers Different from Business Flyers?

It is clear that conference and business flyers have a number of similarities, but the very fact that they have such different aims creates differences that serve to distinguish them from one another. Some of these distinctions include:

  • Specific Events – Perhaps the greatest difference between conference flyers and business flyers, is that the former focus more on promoting a specific conference at a specific time and place. A business can expect to use the same establishment for significant periods of time, but that is less of an option for conferences. Even reoccurring conferences do not always use the same venues, hence the necessity of keeping guests updated.
  • Focus on People – Business flyers are there primarily to promote a specific company. Particular people within a company usually have no bearing on the company’s ability to do business. On the other hand, most conferences make it a point to name their speakers. If the speakers are particularly prestigious, more people with some knowledge of the field are likely to come and hear the speaker speak.
  • Flexible Subjects – Business flyers are business-related, which is to say that they are concerned with promoting a particular business. In other words, business flyers stay within their particular field. Conferences, being that their subjects can concern any topic, are able to be more flexible. Conferences do not always concern themselves with business, so some of their flyers can afford to be informal, or discuss more personal subjects.
  • Invitation vs. Marketing – Business flyers are definitely a marketing tool, aimed at convincing customers of the merit of a particular company and what it has to offer compared to the alternatives. On the other hand, while conference flyers are themselves a marketing tool, their aim is less to sell something to customers than to invite interested parties to participate in the conference. Conference flyers feel less like advertisements than invitations, in that case.

Do It Yourself Conference Flyers

Conference flyers, since their concerns differ significantly from business flyers, possess very different qualities. Considering that the different kinds of flyers are concerned with marketing distinct kinds of events, that is no surprise. Conference flyers also do more than simple advertising. There should be sundry details included that can clear up some details beforehand. Some of the distinct features that conference flyers should include are:

  • Subject – Every conference naturally concerns some kind of topic. Of course, if the flyer is to summarize the conference as a whole, it must mention the subject so that readers will have a basic idea of what the conference is about from the very start. That can allow the audience to more easily decide whether the subject would be relevant or at least interesting to them. Including the subject may go some way to helping readers decide whether or not they want to attend.
  • Speakers – Many conferences have speakers who would have something to say about the topic. It is naturally important to list which speakers will be attending the conference, particularly if they are important persons in related fields. The names of prestigious people can lend some of their prestige and authority to a conference. Having such names attached to the conference may help to sway more people to attend.
  • Description of Event – It would be important to add some kind of description of the event or of the subject. This can help to give everything context or explain the point that the conference wants to make, albeit in a simple manner so as not to give everything away. If the conference is complex, for one reason or another, this description can help clear things up, particularly for laymen.
  • Details – It may also help to include miscellaneous details, such as contact information. Some conferences are more strict than others, making it necessary to secure tickets in order to enter the venue—hence the need to indicate this on the flyer. Potential attendees may also require further clarification so it would be a good idea to add contact persons and information so those questions can be addressed. Other important details may include a short program or confirmation as to whether catering will be provided. In short, these details can make planning for the conference more convenient for attendees.

Types of Conference Flyers

It goes without saying that there are various kinds of conferences. Nowadays, one can have conferences related to any number of subjects: religion, business, education, and others. Naturally, there are different types of flyers to match each kind of subject. It also goes without saying that a flyer and its content should match the subject of the conference. If not, then the flyer is unsuited to helping summarize and explain the conference and is, therefore, useless. In any case, some types of conference flyer you may encounter include flyers for:

  • Social Awareness – Some conferences have to do with raising social awareness; this is particularly appropriate given how so many new ideas are gaining ground in the 21st century. In any case, conferences are generally a good way to find like-minded people and spread those ideas around. In many cases, conferences like these target the youth, who are usually a willing audience for such ideas.
  • Religion – Many conferences are also religious in nature. Religion is one area in which adherents are usually more than willing to spread their ideas to any who will listen. Depending on the case, this can range from small local affairs to larger assemblies hosting people from all over the world.
  • Personal Development – Some conferences, particularly those in more recent years, are focused on the development of traits, skills, and attitudes. These skills can range from the psychological, such as trying to instill certain ideas and values, or the practical, such as instilling life skills and work-related virtues.
  • Business – On occasion, different businesses may conduct their own conferences. The reasons for these can vary, from sharing ideas to instilling certain values. Conferences like these can also help businesses keep up with trends so as to stay competitive, so it is important that flyers allow those with an interest in the subject to know about the conferences.
  • Science – Naturally, scientists also see the need to meet up with their peers from time to time. These are particularly important times for the community as a whole as many scientists use these conferences to display and discuss their ideas as well as receive input from their peers. Flyers for these conferences should be able to tell interested parties about these conferences, as anyone can learn something from them.
  • Summits – Those in the private sector are not the only people in the world who see the need for conferences. Even public figures like government officials see the need to meet together and discuss ideas, and these meetings can have effects on countries as a whole. It is important that flyers let people know about the conference so they may catch a televised version if they can, and keep up with current events as they happen.

Conference flyers are clearly useful, for many of the same reasons as other flyers. Aside from their ability to help market an event, they can provide basic information about the event, and possibly convince would-be attendees to participate. A good conference flyer should, like a good ad, show readers that they can benefit from the event. At the same time, they should be presented less like the voice of a salesman hawking ware and more like an invitation to do something worthwhile with one’s time.
