Project Description

The Anthropology + Technology Conference 2019 was founded by Anthropologist Dawn Walter from Mundy & Anson Ltd.

As a first-year event Dawn was looking for a strategic partner to help develop the design and structure of the conference, as well as managing the nuts and bolts of delivery.

Launching a new conference is a daunting task, especially if you’ve not done it before. Luckily for Dawn – it’s something we’re quite good at.

Over the course of six months we supported Dawn across the full event life-cycle, from designing and building the event website to operational management and delivery on the day.

Being a first year event we put a lot of effort into developing the processes and procedures that will put Dawn (and us!) in good stead for running the conference again in 2020.

Our specific tasks included:

  • Design, build and maintenance of the conference website
  • Development of the registration and ticketing platform
  • Venue, AV and catering management
  • Design and production of digital and print collateral and signage
  • Speaker liaison
  • Staff and volunteer management

Dawn Walter, Founder of the Anthropology + Technology Conference, had this to say:

I hadn’t organised an event of this scale before so relied completely on Thomas’ expertise and experience. Having worked with Thomas, I couldn’t work with anyone else. He’s very organised, professional, dependable, nothing’s too much trouble, incredibly honest, huge integrity. What I most value about Thomas is that he was as invested in my conference as I was. I felt I was working with a partner rather than a contractor, and it showed: on the day the conference was expertly managed and run, which was commented on by my keynotes and delegates alike.
