The key ingredient that is essential for your conference: Your delegates!
Preparation is very important and with you having accessed the e-book already, you are on a great track. What you need to consider is how many delegates you want for there conference - which committees have you set up? Which positions must be filled, which ones would be good to be filled, which additional spaces could be opened? There is certainly delegates out there, but first off, be prepared to get in touch and know what your target audience is. Locals? Internationals? First timer? Experienced MUNers? Prepare your targets, what audience you seek and certainly, keep track of that, e.g. Use those Apps - Organize your Team successfully to make sure your team is up to speed with the preparation phase.
Now the tricky part begins. Recruiting your delegates is certainly crucial for the success of your conference and it can be quite overwhelming to reach out. Luckily, the MUN:Planet community is by now hosting more than 500k members who share the same interest: MUN. This should be your first way to go, start your topic on the conference, share information and for ideal exposure, learn more about the MUN Marketing opportunities for professional delegate recruitment!

Wow, all these applications keep flowing in! Your marketing campaign was successful, you have recruited plenty of delegates and now it is time for the selection process. Positions that require some expertise e.g. the P5 should be filled with delegates who have previous MUN experience - the committee will rely on them! Furthermore, take the interests and study background into account. Also, have delegates expressed a special interest in a committee and/or position? Try to accommodate that! Your delegates will be coming prepared and motivated rather than dropping out because they wanted Israel and you gave them Namibia! Maybe it is not possible to give everyone their dream position - but make sure that you keep their interests in mind, communicate and offer them an alternative to their first option!
All positions have been filled, your delegates are excited to join the conference? Make sure you point them towards MUN:Planet - here they can find advice on their position papers, ask questions about their committee to the community and, of course, get in touch with other delegates.
