Conference Planning Services

Conference and Event Planning Services

University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Continuing Education offers a comprehensive conference planning service. Programs are designed to meet the continuing education needs and personal enrichment interests of professionals in several different fields.


The services provided by the UW-Stevens Point Continuing Education office are designed to ensure a successful professional development activity for your group. Our team can completely orchestrate your large conference or small workshop from initial planning to final wrap-up, or we can provide partial services based on your needs. We do this by working with you on these key points that will determine the success of your activity.

Needs Assessment

Our office can identify and survey potential audiences to determine specific needs.


We work with you to establish general content and program design, create an agenda and processes for workshops, correspond with potential instructors, and develop evaluative processes.


We identify sites and dates and arrange meeting space, meals, lodging, and AV.


We market your activity to your audience. We will work with a talented graphic artist to develop print promotional materials. We will design a conference-specific website housed on the UW-Stevens Point Continuing Education's website. We can also work with local media.

Mailing and Correspondence

We create mail files for distribution of event marketing materials. We maintain correspondence with registrants, speakers/instructors, and sponsors.


Our state-of-the-art software processes registrations. We offer a full online registration website including the ability to process three types of credit cards. We email a customized confirmation letter to participants. Our courteous staff handles onsite registration for both participants and presenters.


We manage the printing of conference related materials including save-the-date flyers, brochures, program books, evaluations, special information flyers and handouts.

Administrative Support

We worry about details that can make or break an event. Speaker logistics, supplies, and Continuing Education Unit processing are handled through our office.

Conference Management

We handle speaker arrangements, arrange food services and AV, and provide comprehensive follow-up services.

Fiscal Management

Working with the client, we develop a budget and conference fees, process all bills, pay speakers, and prepare financial summaries of expenses and incomes.


"Just a personal THANK YOU! I really didn't know how, and still don't know how, you pulled this virtual conference all together so quickly. I was only very mildly nervous since you conveyed a feeling of confidence that you can pull this off. And you and your staff did! Thanks to UWSP CE for embracing, investing, and learning the technology to make this happen. All the big and little things you did, like the keynote from another continent, to the ending comments from (our incoming president) to close out the conference. Wow all very nicely done. A great job. And again, Thank you." ~ Mike
