We provide a range of support services to ensure that events are successfully managed from the initial enquiry to the event itself, this includes a dedicated sales team who will match your requirements to the right venue, event co-ordinators who are on hand in the run up to the event and who will assist you on the day and our ConferCare team who pride themselves on their ability to ensure conferences are successful, well organised and efficiently run - whatever the budget or size of your conference.

Let ConferCare handle the burden of detail, from printed materials and booking accommodation to processing payments and much more, allowing you to focus your time on producing a quality conference programme.

Conference Team
Confercare staffing Registration Desk at Conference
The ConferCare team were a great support to me in organising a fantastic conference which was tailored to our needs and was very well-received by the delegates who attended. Despite unanticipated changes to the conference format, ConferCare worked with us to deliver things to the highest quality and their flexibility and “can do” attitude made them great to work with and reduced our stress before and during the event.Kath Morris IGDTP - Geodisposal 2014 Conference
The planning of this conference was made really easy for our committee because of the excellent support we had from the ConferCare team, their attention to detail and budget preparation really paid off which meant we enjoyed a highly successful and well organised conference. We were so delighted with their service that we have asked them to work with us again on the European Conference on Liquid Crystals in September 2015.Andrew Masters - Thermodynamics Conference 2013
I have used the registration services for several PSS Conferences and would highly recommend them. They deal with all the logistics of the bookings, answering queries, emailing updates and registering delegates on the day. They are always friendly, helpful and excellent at dealing with the unexpected! Helen Barton Director of Planning, The University of Manchester
