Conference portfolio schedule and locations

Conference Portfolio: Schedule and Locations

  • Move Congress to July?

    • Avoid weather considerations.

    • Increase flexibility in location selection.

    • April is filled with calendar challenges – Easter, Passover, spring break, ISM meeting.

    • July is not peak conference season, so more facilities would be available. May get better rates.

    • Avoids “April Miracle” scenario – moves Congress to 1st month in our fiscal year.

    • Attendees may add-on vacations.

    • Have done this before – 2002 in Long Beach.

    • Possible co-location of Leadership Summit.

    • Any change represents risk.


Conference portfolio schedule and locations1

Conference Portfolio: Schedule and Locations

  • Move ADC to March and vary locations?

    • We have a potential conflict in 2009 – Congress in Long Beach in April (contracted) and ADC in July (no contract yet).

    • Aerospace community not as concentrated in Southern California.

    • Moves smallest conference to the end of the fiscal year.

  • Possible change of conference brand away from aerospace and defense.

  • Aerospace and defense could become a community of practice – this conference would be a product in that portfolio.
