What if you could generate more non-dues revenue, improve your relationships with authors and more effectively market your conference events – all with absolutely no extra cost or effort?
Mira’s Poster Program pays you 10 percent of the gross revenue from all posters submitted. Imagine five to 10 dollars per poster going directly to your association in the form of real non-dues revenue.
Mira’s Poster Program
- Pays your association 10 percent of every poster printed
- Makes it easy and convenient for authors to print and deliver their poster to your conference
- Reaches out to presenters, keeping them informed and on schedule
- Is absolutely free and doesn’t require the use of Mira Smart Conferencing Software
Give Your Poster Presenters A Convenient Solution
Mira’s new Poster Program, lets presenters upload their poster to our secure servers. We print the poster and deliver it to your conference where the presenter collects it at registration. It’s a simple, elegant alternative to forcing your authors to maneuver a bulky, unwieldy cardboard tube through a crowded airport security line.
“As a poster presenter you have a lot to worry about. You have to give a talk, pull data together,” said Mira CEO, John Berglund. “The last thing you want to worry about is printing a poster. The value is that, when you show up for the conference, the poster is waiting for you.”
Pay Your Association An Extra Dose Of Revenue
Scan the internet and you’ll find countless references to “non-dues revenue.” According to one recent study, 25 percent of all organization revenue is not derived from dues. It’s apparent that capturing every potential dollar is becoming more and more important.
Because Mira’s poster printing and delivery is a free service to associations, requiring no additional staff hours or administration, this is zero-cost revenue for your group. Who wouldn’t want free money?
Market Your Conference Activities or Survey Your Presenters
Use the power of Mira’s conference planning to market your conference events. Shortly after you’ve notified presenters that they’ve been accepted as a poster presenter, Mira’s team of professional project managers will contact each author and help guide them through the poster production and submission process. With 20 years of conference planning experience, the Mira team can answer just about any question.
That contact is another “touchpoint” for your organization. When Mira contacts authors, it’s just like you’re contacting them. Project managers can share a message from your association, highlight an event or conduct a brief survey. It’s a real, professional conference planner reaching out to your authors. And it’s free.
Don’t worry, Mira never shares or sells any information. All details are kept confidential and shared only with your association.
You Don’t Have To Be A Mira Smart Conferencing Client To Participate
Mira’s Poster Program isn’t limited to Mira clients. And there’s no obligation to use our software (but we’d be happy to demonstrate it to you!). Our poster program upload platform is free for you. Integrate it into your website for a seamless poster submission process.
Richard Stimac, Mira’s director of business development said the response has been impressive. He noted that the improved presenter experience reflects well on the participating associations. “Some of these presenters are completely on their own and their worries are valid. We’re here to take some of that stress away and improve the experience,” said Stimac.
