Its structure:1) An NGO , with board of trustees and quite difficult terms of secretariat selection. An intercollegiate project that every year recruits only the best and the most dedicated to its goal. In fact , in order to be selected for secretariat member, the candidates have to submit an action plan for the desirable position and support it in front of an evaluation committee.
2) Strong through time: It is one of the oldest conferences, and one of the few that actually evaluates feedback given by delegates/chairs- one can find in their website a track of annual changes! Plus, it is one of the few that despite the change in the mun scene, has managed to increase the number of its participants!
3) Chairs: all of them have attended LIMUN more than 3 times-yes, London is an amazing city , but the conference must be really worthy for this to happen! Plus , lots of its former stuff keep visiting annual editions, even they have resigned from model un. It seems that this project is quite addictive for some people!
4) Debating quality: Every year, the delegations sent to that particular conference have worked and prepared really hard for that event , therefore , every year a debating storm occurs in the rooms of Imperial College. Plus, the topics are always on the top of the international agenda!
5) Guest Speakers: Ahmad Alhendawi, UN SG for youth, was one of this year's speakers-given the fact that he rarely attends MUNs , his speech and his presence there was more than inspiring for all of the participants.
6) Multilingualism: committees in French, Arabic and Spanish were held in this year's conference-with plans for further expansion!
7) Venues: Let's admit it-one does not have the chance to be at the Westmister Hall or the Grand Connaught Rooms every day..
And lastly, when something happens in London, inevitably will affect other conferences as well-it's a trendsetting conference in many ways.
It's LIMUN-if not been there, then your mun cv definitely has a huge gap..
