Our Customers Say it Best… In Their Own Words


“The biggest benefits we’ve seen by using ConferenceDirect have been time and efficiency. We’ve also had a lot of cost savings, and the knowledge that ConferenceDirect brings to our sourcing is incredible.”

Liz Lonsbrough, Hobsons


“CD does the heavy lifting in many aspects of my job and aggregates crucial information into a quality report.  By the time it gets to me, I know all the information is fully vetted and researched and I am getting the best possible venues, hotels and rates.  They have also made valuable recommendations as far as housing, registration and DMC vendors that have saved us more money.  Our CD associate is like an in office member of our staff and is involved in all major decisions at our organization. We lean on them to get valuable intel such as event trends and what is the next big thing in the future, along with brainstorming ideas of what is next for NATPE.”

Wayneston Harbeson, National Association of Television Program Executives


“The number one benefit is that ConferenceDirect gets me the best cost in the city (worldwide) for my dates and my needs.  I know that when my association signs a contract, it is one that protects me and provides my group the best possible deal for our event.   The amount of time and energy that ConferenceDirect spends sourcing and negotiating on my behalf alleviates staff work flow and staff hours that would be required to do the same job.  They have saved me from having to hire an additional staff member to handle all of the logistical items that have to be accomplished. “

Michael Downs, Kiwanis International


“The value that my associate at ConferenceDirect brings is priceless. His insight, his knowledge of our business, and his experience in the industry are unparalleled. He has built a rapport with our executive team and he has earned their respect. He makes my job so much easier.”

Christine Rose, Informatica


“The benefits of having ConferenceDirect support our team is that we are freed up to work on projects that bring more revenue into the company. I have someone who supports me and who I trust completely. ConferenceDirect has been crucial to our strategy. Not only are they a partner, but an extension of our team.”

Mindy Grubb, Keller Williams


“We have received more favorable rates and many more concessions than when we negotiated on our own. We also can be certain that we have the most up to date contracts that protect our organization. Not only does our Associates constantly work tirelessly to bring the best contract to CUPA-HR, but he is available to iron out any rough areas that may occur during the planning phase. Many of times he has served as a mentor and enabled me to grow as a professional and a leader in the industry.”
