The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) has contracted with Convention Data Services (CDS) to provide full registration and lead management services for the association’s annual event, which will be held in Vienna, Austria, in February 2013.
The Europe-wide event reaches the largest audience in the wind-energy sector and attracts attendees from more than 83 countries. EWEA 2013 will feature insightful seminars and an impressive exhibition and will bring together the world’s mature and emerging wind-energy markets.
“We feel CDS’ system offers an exceptionally wide range of opportunities and flexibility to our online registration, which inspires us to make even more improvements than those that we had imagined,” said Malgosia Bartosik, membership and events director, EWEA. “Thanks to the combined enthusiasm and creative mind-set of the two teams, we are confidently implementing our registration system revamp and are convinced that it will be a success. We very much look forward to our cross-continental collaboration.”
The move fits with CDS’ strategic vision for expanding into new markets.
“CDS is pleased to welcome EWEA as a new client,” said David Lawton, executive vice president of sales and marketing, CDS. “Part of our overall strategic plan included an expansion into the European market as a premier registration and lead management provider and we are excited about this opportunity to work with their event team.”
EWEA is the world’s largest wind energy network and actively promotes wind power in Europe and worldwide. It has more than 700 members from almost 60 countries, including wind turbine manufacturers with a leading share of the world wind-power market.
For more than 25 years, CDS has provided state-of-the-art registration, database management, exhibitor lead retrieval services and event marketing to the tradeshow industry, serving the needs of businesses and non-profit associations nationwide. Located in Bourne, Mass., CDS recently was named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the country for the fifth consecutive year.
