With a lot of conferences there are all kinds of incentives to register, and early bird specials, and sign-up now and get a free kidney kind of deals. And I understand all that, and I’m not knocking it. Part of it is that you want your conference to have as many people as possible, so you need to hype it some.
We’re putting on a conference this Fall, and we’re not trying to get as many people as possible. In fact, we won’t allow more than 120 people to come. We can fit 300, but we did this last year with about 90 people and the smaller size allowed some import dynamics to happen that we refuse to lose. At most conferences you can’t talk to the speaker right after he leaves the stage, get to know everyone, really network, etc.
The most unique thing about our conference is the content. We got rave reviews last year from, well, everyone who attended. And we heard repeatedly that what they were taught no one else is saying. It’s a conference on how to truly do church for people who truly don’t like church.
So, if you’re interested, here’s they hype: You have to be one of the first 120 to register or you can’t come. You can register at the www.vaultconference.com website.
