ATLANTA, GA AUGUST 15, 2011 – Fresh from another successful Star of the North Meeting, the Minnesota Dental Association (MDA) has just inked a deal to partner with housing and registration specialists, EventSphere and QMS, for the 2012 installment of this popular event. As the annual Star of the North Meeting grows in scope and attendance, MDA has taken steps to ensure its success on the housing frontline by engaging EventSphere CEO Todd Lambert and his team of specialists who will offer their extensive expertise and superior customer service for the road ahead.
“I am quite confident EventSphere will prove to be an invaluable partner to our organization by helping us integrate registration and housing into one platform,” says Director of Meetings for MDA, Shannan Cook. “Moving forward, our attendees will be able to reserve rooms, make changes and view reservation details all in one convenient location. Plus, attendees will now be able to view and compare hotels to select the location that best fits their needs—that’s really key for us.”
Indeed, with more than 9,000 attendees at the 2011 meeting this past April, including dentists, assistants, hygienists, lab techs and exhibitors, providing comprehensive housing and registration resources for next year’s meeting will be of critical importance for this premier state dental meeting. With a full suite of services offered by EventSphere, especially those supported by QMS—an invaluable combined housing and registration tool for event planners—the ease, flexibility and efficacy of the registration process will be immediately evident for meeting attendees in 2012.
“With the cutting edge resources offered by EventSphere, hotel confirmations can promptly be emailed and we’ll have access to one central system to manage any changes, cancellations or special requests,” continues Cook, “Implementing their comprehensive services was really the last step in providing a more user-friendly meeting for our attendees.“ An important annual event for the dental community, the Star of the North Meeting set for 2012—featuring “make connections, gain experience” as its core theme—will include 70 continuing education seminars and an exhibit floor showcasing nearly 275 companies. “We know this is a major meeting for MDA and EventSphere is proud to offer its services towards ensuring a flawless experience for attendees from start to finish,“ confides CEO Todd Lambert.
