Conference and Event Management

Overview

Modern Signal offers custom ASP.NET and ColdFusion solutions for conference and event management.

During requirements gathering and analysis, we will work with you to design a system that meets your users' needs — attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff alike.

Our projects often include:

  • Event registration
  • Exhibitor management
  • Presenter, program, and abstract management
  • Show planners and mobile apps
  • Advertising and sponsorship
  • Name badges, attendee rosters, and reporting
  • CRM integration (Salesforce, iMIS)
  • Payment transactions (Authorize.Net, Stripe, PayPal, Cybersource, and others)

If you are looking for consulting and development partners to help improve your event management, we can help

Event Registration

We develop online event registration systems designed to fit your unique registration policies and procedures. These systems can incorporate as few or as many features as you need, including:

  • Event calendars
  • Tiered price for early/late, member/nonmember, and other categories
  • Add-on events and packages (e.g., receptions or education courses)
  • Waitlists and lotteries
  • Email reminders
  • Reports for badges, rosters and attendance tracking

Exhibitors & Virtual Booths

Exhibitor management can be a complex and time consuming process. We can help you by building tools to manage exhibitors through the full lifecyle of exhibiting, from the initial application through onsite reporting and marketing. Solutions can include:

  • Exhibitor applications and booth selection, including Visa requests
  • Hotel room bookings
  • Exhibitor profile tools
  • Floorplans and virtual booths
  • Exhibitor directories
  • Reports

Presenters, Programs & Abstracts

If your conference or event includes continuing education sessions, courses, panels discussions or other programs, we can design seamless systems to help you manage the details efficiently. Solutions can include:

  • Calls for speakers, presenters, programs, and abstracts
  • Speaker and program evaluation, rankings, and approval tools
  • Tools for speakers to upload bios, photos, handouts, and marketing materials
  • Reporting tools for rosters and logistics planning

Show Planners & Mobile Apps

A well-designed show planner can engage your attendees and attract new registrants and sponsorings by allowing individuals to fully explore your offerings and craft their own event experience. Features can include:

  • Consolidated calendars for events, meetings, courses, and personal appointments
  • Tools for attendees to plan exhibitor booth visits
  • Advertising and sponsorship opportunities
  • Contests, polls, and other interactive features
  • Venue information
  • Sightseeing ideas and group excursion sign-ups
  • Personalized recommendations based on exhibitor or attendee registration data
  • Custom reports and analytics for onsite logistics adjustments — such as room size, handout and giveaway counts — and for post-conference analysis

Advertising & Sponsors

In addition to virtual booths for exhibitors, advertising and sponsorship can be refined by education tracks, interest areas and products to target select groups of site users. Highly integrated advertising and prioritized search rankings prevent the "cluttered" look that ads can sometimes create on sites. Integration with Google Analytics can provide meaningful metrics to potential advertisers and sponsors.

Testimonials

    - Kirk Gillis, Managing Director at Zoom Tanzania

  • Modern Signal understands our business - from future needs to current limitations - so their solutions are always scalable, solid, and service-oriented.

    - National Association of Home Builders

  • I love working with Modern Signal! Their CMS is very easy to use and they are incredibly responsive to questions or challenges I bring them.

    - NALP

  • Modern Signal has been a great partner for us for over the past 10 years.  As our business grew and our needs changed, Modern Signal was able to work with us to adjust our website platform in the ever-changing online world.  Their service and response level has been second to none, and we've been never been happier with our relationship with them.

    - Charm City Run

  • Modern Signal worked with us to understand our needs and figure out what solution would work best for us. Our Lighthouse CMS is perfectly suited to our website goals. When we later needed to modify the CMS, they again took the time to understand exactly what was  needed and then built that functionality rather than delivering a cookie cutter solution.   

    - Ecosystem Investment Partners

  • Modern Signal significantly enhanced our site to be more efficient and user-friendly. They provide excellent customer service with timely and cost-effective solutions.

    - Center for Medicare Education

  • I felt as if my company was their only client. They responded to my needs quickly and efficiently despite short turn around time and intense demands.

    - Teaching Strategies, Inc.

  • This was by far the smoothest website redevelopment I have ever experienced. Modern Signal was a wonderful company to work with and we greatly value our working relationship. 

    - National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators

  • Modern Signal has a professional staff that was very responsive to our needs during all phases - scoping, developing, implementing and maintaining - of our project.  We have been pleased with their ability to deliver quality work on time and on budget. If given the opportunity, I would work with them again.
