Dear Reader:

Summer is an exciting time at a2z! While the number of shows decreases significantly from the busy Spring season, the a2z team doesn't slow down. We are busy working on a new version of the a2z Exposition and Conference Management system, scheduled for release in July of this year.

After three interactive and informative user groups in Dallas, Chicago and Washington, DC, we are currently in the planning phase for multiple user workshops and training sessions this fall.

We also enjoyed the lively interactions with many of you at the ASAE Springtime. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our partners at the event - IAEE DC, J. Spargo and Projection; as well as to congratulate the winning participants in the ChirpE Photo Booth Scavenger Hunt. Thank you for playing!

PRSM logo

"PRSM recently implemented a2z’s new order system for our upcoming events with great success. Exhibit space sales opened at the beginning of May and were very smooth. Now 23 days later, we are 99% sold for our October event with 20% of the exhibitors selecting at least one add-on. We are 85% sold for our National Conference in April 2014 with 21% selecting at least one add-on. The point of sales enhanced listing add-ons have resulted in a tremendous return on our total a2z investment. This enhancement has become a new revenue stream for our conferences."
