Cloud Conventions Expands Registration Capabilities with 3rd-Party Providers

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full-featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution today expanded its capabilities to offer connections to two new external registration technologies, providing additional options to register attendees for virtual conferences or association events. The first in a series of integrations are with Experient, a division of Maritz Global Services and RegFox, a California-based registration company. Cloud Conventions is a virtual event SaaS platform from Convey Services . “Many show producers or event managers have a history of using platforms like Experient to manage complex registrations, including taking payment, managing travel and lodging, and selecting program extras,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey Services. “These proven registration platforms will augment Cloud Conventions’ internal registration engine, giving event operators the flexibility of using a solution they are familiar with and may already have a contract.” Cloud Conventions connects to external registration systems through an application program interface (API) to collect and transmit data. Once Cloud Conventions receives a registration, the system creates a unique attendee record and assigns a classification based on the purchased event package. Attendees receive a welcome email from Cloud Conventions with access credentials so they can login immediately or a welcome email can be scheduled for a later date. Event organizers have the option of approving all applications any action is taken. “Some events have complex payment structures or need to validate an attendee against a membership record,” added Bradfield. “Many organizations have relationships with a registration company that offers greater customization. All a show needs to do is identify the external platform to Convey and we’ll connect the two systems.” Cloud Conventions can provide a personalized content experience with customized dashboards, segmented email communication or restricted access to some or all exhibit booths or content based on attendee type. To learn more about the options available for a virtual conference, tradeshow or event, visit the Online Resource Center at CloudConventions.com . About Cloud Conventions Cloud Conventions is a Virtual Trade Show and Conference Platform from Convey Services that brings new capabilities to a marketplace looking for solutions to replace the thousands of live trade shows, annual conferences and association meetings cancelled in the wake of COVID-19. Originally launched as ConveyLive, Cloud Conventions automates exhibitors and virtual booths, attendee registration, speaker sessions and reminders, invitations and email communication, while at the same time producing detailed analytics on attendee, session and exhibitor activity.

Cloud Conventions Launches Online Resource Center for Virtual Event Managers

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full featured virtual tradeshow, conference and event technology solution today launched an Online Resource Center to guide future event planners and operators though the expanding world of virtual events. The Center provides strategies, best practices and ideas for effective event design to engage attendees and deliver a strong ROI to exhibitors and sponsors. Articles and eBooks outline how to set up, manage and run a world class virtual event with engaging educational and social sessions that deliver an interactive experience for both attendees and exhibitors. Cloud Conventions is a virtual event SaaS platform from Convey Services . “Almost every event manager, show operator or association is having to learn how to manage a virtual event for the first time, we have been doing online events for years,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey. “Most event managers make the mistake of believing that a series of webinars constitutes a virtual experience that will inspire attendees. Webinars have been overused and most people are not motivated to sit through an endless stream of repetitive webinar sessions. An effective virtual experience needs a higher level of content from the event and its exhibitors, with live sessions offered alongside on-demand programs.” The Online Resource Center features the Virtual Event Playbook, a guide to the features and capabilities of the Cloud Conventions platform in addition to curated articles and videos on best practices in delivering virtual sessions, enhancing the attendee experience or managing and working with exhibitors and sponsors. “We are constantly curating best practices from across this dynamic new industry so that event managers, even novices to the world of virtual shows, can be successful hosting their first event,” added Bradfield. “Exhibitors must embrace a different strategy to capture attendee information and interact through chat, video meeting rooms, scheduled meetings or gamification. A virtual tradeshow should center around a theme or mission, offer rich content, ways to connect with exhibitors, as well as other attendees along with opportunities to socialize.” Cloud Conventions has features to promote interaction with discussion forums, opt-in attendee directories, social sessions, and live exhibitor meetings. Exhibitors can use chat, streaming video meetings, or integrated meeting calendars. They can offer ‘virtual swag’, show specials or promotions and give away CloudPoints™ for attendees who engage inside their booth.

Webinar: Exploring the Impact of the Perception Gap Between Leaders & Teams

Engagement Multiplier

Engagement Multiplier ( www.engagementmultiplier.com ) a leading SaaS employee engagement platform designed for small to medium enterprises, will host a free webinar on July 29 at 4:00 BST / 11:00 EST / 10:00 CST titled “The Leadership Perception Gap.” The webinar will feature Engagement Multiplier founder and CEO Stefan Wissenbach, who will discuss the all-too-common divide in perception of leadership effectiveness, the impact it can have on an organization, how to diagnose perception gaps within your organization and, importantly, the remedies leaders can take to bridge the divides. According to a study from Gartner , only 50% of employees say their leader “effectively creates visions for the future of the team. The same survey also found that only 50% of leaders believe they are well-equipped to lead their organization into the future. “This moment in time calls for real leadership,” says Wissenbach. “As they form the strategies for their companies’ survival, leaders need to be mindful of the perception of their employees. If a firm’s employees don’t perceive leadership is effective, it will be exponentially more difficult for that firm to successfully cultivate needed change to adjust to and thrive in today’s business environment.” Wissenbach will pay particular attention to the qualities leaders need to cultivate within themselves to improve their personal effectiveness, win the team’s trust and close the Leadership Perception Gap . “When employees believe in their leaders, they trust their judgement and are willing to follow the strategic plan. Closing the perception gap is important for improving employee engagement and overall business performance,” Wissenbach notes. Free Employee Engagement Survey for Attendees Webinar registrants and attendees will receive free access to Engagement Multiplier’s benchmark employee survey, including a question module designed to assess whether or not the organization suffers from a Leadership Perception Gap. Register: https://bit.ly/LeaderGap Webinar: The Leadership Perception Gap Date: July 29,2020 Time: 11:00 AM Eastern / 10:00 AM Central / 4:00 PM British Standard Time About Stefan Wissenbach Stefan is a successful entrepreneur, author and thought leader who is passionate about the transformational impact of engagement on businesses. He has spent over 25 years helping business owners create more connected, productive and energised teams that improve business performance, creativity, and entrepreneurial capability and freedom. Wissenbach is the founder of Engagement Multiplier and The Magic Future Foundation and speaks regularly at conferences and events throughout the UK, Europe and America. In recent years, engaging your employees and harnessing their potential has become a hot topic in the business world. Get it right, and the results are remarkable. Get it wrong and it can destroy a company. As the world is gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic, business owners are seeking answers to help them navigate change and challenges, emerge stronger and create opportunity out of adversity. Now, more than ever, Wissenbach’s thought-provoking, straightforward and proven approach helps business owners and leaders create tighter cultures, more connected, engaged and agile teams.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Turnersville, NJ Supports Local Businesses During COVID-19 with PPE, Social Distancing Printing Products and Free Marketing Website Bounce Back Turnersville

Minuteman Press International

Erik Schwartz has owned Minuteman Press in Turnersville for 12 years. As a local business owner himself, Erik knows how important it is for the community to rally together and support local business while staying safe during COVID-19. Erik’s Minuteman Press franchise located at 4991 Route 42, Suite 4 is doing its part by providing vital personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face masks and facial coverings (for non-medical use), social distancing printing products such as COVID-19 safety posters, floor graphics and sneeze guards, and even free marketing through their community website Bounce Back Turnersville . Erik says, “The number one thing we have been doing throughout the pandemic is that we are printing and distributing COVID-19 safety posters and signs for free. We believe that our community comes first and it’s important for everyone to remain safe.” In addition to the free posters, Erik and his team at Minuteman Press Turnersville have given away face masks and hand sanitizer to help their clients and community members. They also have launched a free website Bounce Back Turnersville where any local business can submit their text and logo. Minuteman Press will then create a local ad and post it for free on the website. “We’ve had a very favorable response to all of our efforts to help others during this critical time including the Bounce Back website. We have special offers on the website from businesses ranging from restaurants, roofing, and solar energy to auto repair and healthcare.” For Minuteman Press, Erik and his team’s efforts to put community first have paid off. “We had a good month in June and it’s great to see more local businesses reopening. As they reopen, we make sure they know we are here to help them in any way we can.” During COVID-19, the most popular items printed and produced by Minuteman Press Turnersville right now are masks and facial coverings, social distancing products , sneeze guards, and direct mail advertising campaigns. “Our most popular and comfortable masks are 100% cotton, two-ply fabric. By far, the most popular color is black and then we use our heat press to customize them with company logos and designs. I wear them and my staff wears them with our Minuteman Press logo printed on them. When people see us, they tend to ask about them and this leads to orders.” Because print is an essential business , Minuteman Press has been able to remain open. Therefore, Erik is able to share his own experiences and advice for other businesses who are now reopening themselves. “My advice and the biggest thing I’ve learned is to create an advertising budget and concentrate on advertising to your core markets. Do some printing, advertise on the Internet, and put together a healthy mix of cross-media marketing to reach people. Many clients have come to us for direct mail and Every Door Direct Mail to reach customers right now, and it’s working.” “It is wonderful to see all of the great things Erik is doing to help his business community bounce back from COVID-19,” says Richard Hornberger, Minuteman Press International Regional Vice President, Philadelphia Region. Rich adds, “Local businesses like Erik’s Minuteman Press franchise in Turnersville are the lifeblood of local economies and I am proud of the work he’s been doing in helping his clients and community as businesses continue to reopen.” Supporting other local businesses is also important to Erik. “I shop local and utilize the services of my clients as much as I possibly can. It’s also gratifying for me when two of my clients talk and network and discover the need for each other’s products and services. Recently, I had a plumber and a realtor together outside my center. The realtor needed the plumber, and the plumber provided an estimate and got the job.” Erik concludes, “For local businesses and the community, supporting each other is huge and it means a lot to see so many people here in Turnersville come together to pitch in and help out during this time.” For more information on Minuteman Press in Turnersville, NJ, call 856-232-7700 or visit https://www.minutemanprints.com .
