Penton Media, Inc. has proudly selected CompuSystems, Inc. (CSI) as their premier registration vendor, and onPeak as their official housing partner. This selection is part of a multi-year contract, which will funnel all Penton shows, including those produced both in their Penton Media and New Hope Natural Media offices, exclusively to CSI and onPeak.
“To leverage our best buying power and streamline our organization, it only made sense to have an exclusive partner for registration and another for housing to handle our entire portfolio,” said Alan Peterson, president of exhibitions, Penton Media. “The technology of both CSI and onPeak is clearly the best in the business for their respective specialties.”
Since Penton has worked with both CSI and onPeak for years, it was easy to see the strides each company made regarding technology and integration. The advancements in collaboration between CSI and onPeak made the choice to award vendor exclusivity easy.
The expanded integration of CSI’s registration software and onPeak’s COMPASS Reservation System® enables data sharing between the event registrations and housing processes so that users are only prompted to enter their information once. The result is a singular, combined event confirmation and heightened convenience for show organizers and participants every step of the way.
What sets this apart from other companies registration and housing integration is that users not only receive singular, combined confirmations, but they can also view their hotel and travel information on the registration website while seamlessly moving back and forth between registration and housing to view and edit their record; a fully-integrated experience.
CSI and onPeak have successfully worked together in the past on shows such as Penton’s The Special Event. This new contract for 2011-2015 will only further strengthen the industry bond between CSI and onPeak.
“CSI and onPeak work exceptionally well together because of our common dedication to heightened customer service,” said Michael Howe, president & CFO of onPeak. “It’s a great foundation for the new and enticing ways we get delegates to fill the event hotel blocks.”
CSI and onPeak are currently slated to handle all Penton and New Hope Natural Media shows including WasteExpo, Electric West, Club Industry, Club Industry East, Coal Prep, LDI, and The Special Event.
The new contract also includes Natural Products Expo West / SupplyExpo, Natural Products Expo East / Organic Products Expo and Natural Market Place NutraCostmetics.
“CSI is excited to work with such a distinguished show organizer,” said Chris Williams, senior VP, CSI. “We are committed to providing Penton with superior service and technological innovation, and continuing our incredible partnership with onPeak.”
