DIFFERENCES

Convention and Conference are


two words that are often confused
when it comes to their meanings
and connotations. Convention
refers to a gathering. On the other
hand, conference refers to a
seminar or a symposium. This is
the main difference between the
two words.
10
A convention is held to commemorate an event or a
milestone, and it is held once in a few years. On the
other hand, a conference is held to exhibit scholarship
on any given subject. This is another important
difference between the two words. Convention
normally targets a particular section of people.
Conventions such as youth convention, student
convention, and the like target particular sections of
people like the youth and the students respectively.

On the other hand, the word conference refers to


paper reading in seminars. In other words, scholars in
various subjects read out papers, especially research
papers during a conference. For example, in a
conference on growing trends in fashion

11
A convention is usually held for a period of
one week or one and a half weeks. On the
other hand, the duration of a conference is
not a long one like that of a convention.
Conferences are held for a period of one
day to a maximum of three days.

The most important point that drives
business for a convention center is the
availability of hotels and other supporting
facilities like recreational areas, retail
outlets and establishments in the market.
Other key points in defining business
drivers for convention centers is the basic
infrastructure that a destination has to
offer in terms of affordability, safety, ease
of transport, etc. A major portion of events
related to entertainment, leisure and
sporting events are also determined by the
availability in the market of other
exhibition and entertainment facilities

development tools for local communities which
operate as stand-alone profit centers, rather,
through public investment, paid mostly through
taxes visitors pay, their mission is to support local
businesses and traded sector industries. The
Oregon Convention Center is no different: it was
built as a proven means to bring visitors to the
area, create and sustain jobs, generate direct and
indirect spending, and increase tax revenue.

Traditionally, government
corporations have been involved
in the development and operation
of convention, conference and
civic centers for the purpose of

economic benefits such as sales,
jobs, taxes, etc. within the region
