The Power of Credibility
When your event is either completely new to the market or you are trying to reach out to a new audience, establishing up front credibility with your audience is important. Even if your event is well-established, re-enforcement of its credibility will help boost your attendance.

Establish Who You Are
Create credibility by establishing a unique identity such as an “Institute" or “Center" along with a description of your mission. For example, the “Center for Personal Finance" or “The National Institute of (fill in the blank). "

Use any industry or high-profile connections to establish and promote an advisory board. Use “big name" speakers or co-chairs along with their photos on all of your promotional materials. Your prospects will feel safer registering when they see familiar or official-sounding entities.

You’re in Good Company
Find yourself a reputable sponsor or co-sponsor and then shamelessly promote your partnership. If you have not yet established a reputation, “borrowing" someone else's can give you a tremendous attendance boost. You're smiling to yourself, but it's true!

Prominently promoting individuals and/or companies that have participated in past events can also launch instant credibility. Do you have notable speakers?

  • Jack Welch
  • Donald Trump
  • Martha Stewart
  • President of an industry leading company

Or promotable sponsors?

  • Cadillac
  • MetLife
  • An industry leading company

More importantly. . . are you promoting them?

I sincerely hope this article makes your conference and event registration even more successful!
