Become a host
Once a hosting conference production organization — or cooperating set of organizations — has been approved, the Ecocity Focus Lab moves into planning stage in partnership with Ecocity Builders. A clear, well-organized flow of information is tantamount to a successful conference.
Ecocity Focus Lab strives to further the legacy of the Ecocity World Summit as pioneering and open to a wide range of interests and perspectives. The hosts should agree that the core themes and concerns of the Ecocity Focus Lab series as laid out in this manual are furthered.
Ecocity Builders representatives are official advisors to the planning process but local organizers are solely responsible for matters of communication and coordination with all subcontractors in the production process. This includes but is not limited to seeking partners and sponsors; negotiating for venue facilities and services; inviting and coordinating travel; negotiating with presenters about program; payment for expenses and speakers’ fees; and provision for meals, entertainment and special events.
