Why use KU to host your online conference or training?

Our knowledgeable, flexible events planning staff have the expertise to help you put together a professional, successful event, training or conference, no matter what your needs may be.

"At the start of the pandemic in the U.S., the Society of Pediatric Psychology was left with the decision of transitioning a 3-day national conference to a virtual conference, in only eight days.  The KU team met daily with the SPP conference planning team to pivot the presidential address, keynotes, and symposia sessions to zoom. They also worked with us convert poster sessions and other activities to a robust twitter ‘storm’ (search twitter for #vSPPAC2019 to see the incredible member engagement).  Their team of specialists in conference planning and implementation worked tirelessly alongside the society planners to deliver a virtual conference of the highest quality with record attendance.  The KU team’s professional, organized approach and unwavering commitment to a quick conference conversion of the highest quality was remarkable.  The team has my highest recommendation for other conferences considering a virtual transition during these troubling times."

-Wendy Ward, President Elect of American Psychological Association Division 54, on behalf of the 2020 vSPPAC planning committee
