Special offer: Featured event service

The featured event service sends an announcement, dedicated to your event, to Conal subscribers whose personal profiles match your event profile.

Usually, we do not indicate how many people will receive the announcements before they are sent out, as the number of people is changing constantly as people subscribe, edit their subscriptions, or unsubscribe, either for a short period, or permanently.

However, for a limited period, we are offering to estimate the numbers of people who will receive your event, based on subscribers currently on our database.

Please note that we cannot guarantee this number will be the number of subscribers  who receive your announcements if you order the service; this is an estimate only.

To take advantage of this offer; please email Conal at Please remember to include the ID number of the event which you wish to promote through the Featured event service in your email.

Featured organizer: Progressive Connexions

In the first of a series featuring event organizers who list events on Conal, we feature Progressive Connexions. Dr Rob Fisher of Progressive Connexions has been using the Conal website to list and promote his events for 17 years. He tells us more about his company below.


Progressive Connexions is an innovative not-for-profit global network which is dedicated to exploring interdisciplinary living and thinking in the context of how we live in the 21st century.

The capacity to live our lives in interdisciplinary ways can be found at the heart of who we are, what we do and all we might become. For the best part of twenty years we have been encouraging and supporting people to understand what this means.

We are committed to promoting the open exchange of ideas, experiences, research, practice and points of view. We create interdisciplinary experiences rooted in the values of inclusiveness, egalitarianism, collegiality and critical inquiry. We believe learning experiences are enriched by the presence of people from around the world, whose contributions reflect the diversity of their experiences, expertise and professional backgrounds. Through such a rich diversity of exchanges, we facilitate work which pushes the boundaries of perceptions and insights which shape the world.


Dr Rob Fisher

Our ethos is rooted in a commitment to creating an equal playing field in which everyone’s voice is valued. We reject the titles and hierarchies of the context from which people come and within which they work and promote instead an atmosphere where they can meet without the built-in intimidation such things can bring with them. In a spirit of humility, all voices all heard.

We also create spaces in which no one dominates the conversation: no single individual or group of individuals, no single nationality, gender, ideology or viewpoint. What we do is built upon the foundations of mutual respect and professional courtesy. All interactions are rooted in a spirit of collegiality and good will. The aim is to provide supportive environments for discussion, debate and new approaches.

Humble inquisitiveness. Mutual respect, Openness to possibilities. That is future of learning.


In the coming week, we will be featuring some upcoming events organized by Progressive Connexions on the Conal twitter account and Facebook page.  Here are two Progressive Connexions events currently listed on Conal: 

Sexual Citizenship: 1st Global Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Humour: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

The organizers featured on Conal event organizer blog posts have used Conal for many years and Conal values their listings and support. The organizers featured here are chosen at Conal’s discretion, and do not pay for this service.

Bold your event!

The Bold Event service was introduced as a paid stand alone promotion for the first time in November 2017, because we saw there was a demand for this.


The service offers excellent value for money.

It is the only paid promotion service that, for the same price, will remain active from the time the service is purchased and we receive payment, until the date of your event, no matter how long this time period is.

The service highlights your event title in bold on the country page, and on every topic page where your event is listed:

Please log in to your organizer dashboard to choose and pay for the Bold Event Service.

Conal: A subscriber driven site


Conal is a subscriber driven website where subscribers define the sorts of events they wish to receive alerts about through creating a unique personal profile.

In this profile subscribers choose keywords describing events in their interest areas. Subscribers also choose countries which they are interested in visiting. (There is an “All countries” option too!)  Subscribers are able to fine tune their subscriber profiles in other ways too; for example, they may wish to only receive alerts about events where the call for papers is still open.

Subscribing is free, and subscribers are able to edit or update their personal profiles at any time by logging into the site.

Because our website is subscriber driven, organizers using our site will find it effective as our marketing is extremely targeted: only subscribers who are interested in the subject matter of your event, and who would like to visit the country in which your event is taking place, will receive alerts about your event.

Conal currently has over 300 000 subscribers. Make use of Conal to advertise your event effectively.
