MADISON, Wis., Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The primary reason individuals choose to attend a conference is for top-notch educational content that advances individuals, organizations and industries. Sourcing this content is one of the most important—and most challenging tasks for meeting planners. Barriers such as chasing down submitters and reviewers, troubleshooting issue and manually re-working data can affect the quantity and quality of speaker submissions and, ultimately, the quality of their conference program. Omnipress, provider of print and digital content solutions for associations and other organizations, had just released a guide outlining small and simple changes meeting planners can make to their abstract management and review process to mitigate problems, save time and increase the quality and integrity of their educational content.

"Year after year, meeting planners report that managing a collection and review process for conference content is one of their top challenges, despite the fact that more and more tech solutions have entered the market designed to make things more automated or streamlined, " states Jonny Popp, General Manager at Omnipress. "This is because technology alone has not solved the problem. The fundamental issue is actually the process, and not always the tool."

The free guide developed by Omnipress compiles over 40 years of best practices, outlining simple and realistic changes meeting planners should consider making to their process to save time and mitigate issues.

Sean Lawler, Omnipress' Product Development Director notes, "Our project managers have collectively worked on thousands of conferences for our customers. Even though every conference is somewhat unique, we see the same mistakes occurring over and over again." Continues Lawler, "We work with customers one-on-one to simplify their process, and wanted to share the most common tips with as many meeting planners as possible."

One sample tip: collecting data in the smallest pieces possible, to give you the greatest amount of flexibility without having to spend time manually cleaning up and re-formatting data. "It's a really, really simple step, but one that is often overlooked," Lawler notes.
