The San Diego Convention Center, which offers more than 1,000,000 sq.ft. of exhibition and meeting space in the heart of downtown San Diego, is transitioning from an antiquated venue management system to EventBooking’s latest cloud-based platform, VenueOps.
During an extensive selection process for a new solution, the SDCC team became particularly excited about the integration capabilities of VenueOps. The platform made its appeal not only through its ability to meet “must have” business requirements, but also through its flexibility in sharing data with other best-in-class applications. In this case, the SDCC was especially interested in VenueOps’ capability to seamlessly integrate with Microsoft Dynamics Business Central 365, the popular finance solution.
Mardeen Matrix (pictured left), CFO at SDCC, explains, “The smooth communication between these two systems will allow us to have the best of both worlds—the specialized functionality of each, without settling for a mediocre, single system trying to be all things at once.” She continues, “This—coupled with the glowing industry feedback we heard about EventBooking’s customer service—made the choice an easy one.”
Steve Mackenzie (pictured right), president of EventBooking, says, “We are thrilled that San Diego has put their faith in VenueOps as their venue booking system of choice—for their needs now and in the future. We loved our interactions with the SDCC team during the selection process, and we’re proud to be their technology partner along with MS Dynamics BC 365. We’re confident the tight integration between our applications will simplify the everyday processes of this impressive facility, and we look forward to providing the same white glove service to their team that we’ve become known for in the industry at large.”
The San Diego Convention Center is the region’s premier gathering place, hosting conventions, tradeshows and community events that economically benefit the City of San Diego and advances the region’s convention and tourism industry. The San Diego Convention Center Corporation is a public benefit corporation created by the City of San Diego to exclusively manage, market and operate the 2.6 million sq. ft. waterfront facility.
