“I would certainly recommend involvement by everyone as a Host. This was my first time and I look forward to doing it again next year.” – 2015 Host
Call for Hosts
This is a call to all Pacific Dental Conference attendees to consider taking on a key role at the conference by becoming a Host to one of our over 100 speakers. Is there a speaker at the conference whom you would like to meet? Becoming a Host provides a perfect opportunity for you to communicate with your favourite presenter!
The PDC has a reputation among speakers for its hospitality and this is mostly due to the Hosts who help make the speaker’s experience in Vancouver a pleasant one. It’s a rewarding experience with some perks! If you host a speaker, you will be credited your registration fee following the conference.
What exactly does a Host do?
Hosts are the liaisons between the Pacific Dental Conference and the speakers and have the prime responsibility to ensure their stay
and presentation at our meeting is a positive experience. Duties of a host include:
- introducing your speaker at the presentation
- accompanying your speaker to breakfast or lunch in the Speaker’s Lounge
- monitoring the presentation
- thanking the speaker at the end of their presentation
A full Host Package is sent to you well in advance of the conference with detailed information on the duties of a Host. In addition to this, the Pacific Dental Conference holds a Host Wine & Cheese Reception just prior to the conference where you will have the opportunity
to meet other Hosts, have a tour of the Vancouver Convention Centre and receive a verbal overview of the tasks ahead of you.
Once you have completed the registration process, simply click on the button “Volunteer for Hosting” and follow the instructions.
If you have already registered, please access your existing registration and click on “Volunteering for Hosting”.
“Being involved in the process of the PDC allows one to have a greater depth of appreciation of the event, and sense of belonging to the larger group of dental personnel.” – 2016 Host
