Delegate Experience

ARDA's conferences are known for their scope, depth, intimacy, and the full participation of senior leaders in the field. ARDA deliberately brings in leaders from around the world and, in so doing, helps foster important dialogues that supplement and exceed global interests in international education.

Bringing Conferencing Up-To-Speed With The 21st Century

The definition of conference content distribution has evolved considerably over the past decade. This is particularly the case with the delegates themselves. One of the main concerns is the commitment to attendance. Delegates now expect higher levels of engagement before, during, and after conferences. Much of this expectation revolves around the content of the event and the way the content is presented. It is crucial to offer all stakeholders with remote access to digital features, online information, and similar resources. Ultimately, these will serve to improve the end-user experience and foster higher levels of engagement.

Providing Delegates Consummate Conferencing Experiences

ARDA's conferences serve as inclusive forums for established and up-and-coming scholars to present their research, receive feedback, start conversations and make new connections in a stimulating, inclusive and rewarding environment. Most academic conferences being organized these days are aimed at participants from a distinct, sometimes niche discipline with a program consisting of a presentation and analysis of research from that single domain. However, ARDA's conferences are conducted in pairs or groups, so conferences that cover distinct but complementary areas are organized as a single event, and delegates registered for one of the events can attend the sessions in the other event. This allows delegates of ARDA's conferences to take full advantage of opportunities to interact with specialists in fields other than their own and thus benefit from informed commentary and discussions from different perspectives and approaches.
