More tips for Organizers

Please check your event listing on Conal frequently to make sure it is up to day. Your organizer dashboard gives you an overview of all your event listings, the status of your event, and shows you messages about your event if these should be necessary.

Make sure that any information about your event is accurate and does not contain typos or spelling mistakes.  You are free to update or edit event information as frequently as you wish so that it accurately reflects your event. Please note that there are some fields which you are not able to edit, please email us if these fields need to be changed.

Check your dashboard to find an event ID number, and always include this number in any correspondence with Conal.

Make sure that information on Conal agrees with all information on your event website: for example, the name of the city in which your event is taking place. (Adding the country after the city name, or any other information added into this field may lead to your event being suspended).

Make sure that any admin email addresses added are accurate, we made need to contact you about your listings; and it goes without saying that event contact email addresses should also be correct.

Remember that taking care with adding and maintaining your event information so that it is always accurate and up to date may lead to more interest in your event.

Keeping track of things

Whether you are subscribing to receive event alerts, or adding an event as an organizer, it is useful to make a note of the email address which you are using for your Conal account. Please also make a note of the username you are using; and the password you are using.

If you have both a subscriber and an organizer account, please keep careful track of which is which; and use a different email address if possible for the two different accounts.

You are always able to reset account passwords; and you can ask us to send your username to you. Please also contact us if you need help unsubscribing.

The Conal brand

The phrase: “Conference Alerts” has become synonymous in recent years with receiving alerts about conferences in your area of interest.

We were the first people to use this phrase and are the owners of the domain name.

Many people are now using conference alerts phrase, so please use the Conal brand and logo:

to identify our website: Conal, the original Conference Alerts!

Please also follow Conal on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms.

Event listing in bold

We sometimes receive queries about how to make an event title appear in bold. The bolding of an event title on Conal is not a promotional service. Bolding is a free value added service which is currently linked to our Featured event service. If you purchase a featured event service, your event title will appear in bold in the listing of events.

(The bolding used to be a value added service linked to the Ad box service, but so many of these services were purchased that almost all events started to appear in bold, which defeated the purpose of bolding the event. It was therefore decided to move the bolding of events to the Featured event service.)

Making a payment

Most services offered by Conal are free.

We offer services for subcribers who wish to  receive information about events in their fields of interest. Subscriptions are completely free.

The second set of services we offer are for event organizers.  Organizers can choose between free and paid options to promote their event. There is no charge for adding an event to the Conal database, but we also offer 4 additional paid advertising options that organizers can use for event publicity. This paid advertising can be ordered and paid for through the organizer dashboard, and organizers will be directed to a secure payment platform once the promotion has been ordered.

Payment is in USD, and we use two payment platforms: SWReg and Paypal. Please note that depending on the country from which you are making payment, tax may be added to your order. This tax is added by the specific payment platform and questions about payment and tax must be directed to the specific payment platform used.

Customers paying from South Africa are required to pay VAT and pay in ZAR through an EFT. Bank transfers from any other country will not be accepted.
