  • Why It Might Be Time to Revise Your Registration Pricing Strategy

    by Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model.Authors.Author | Mar 24, 2017


    David Saef, GES’ EVP of Strategy and MarketWorks, recently sat down with PCMA ’s David McMillan to talk about how the events industry might adopt a shift toward flexible pricing.

    While the majority of conferences and conventions still operate by the model of an early-bird discount followed by a higher standard registration fee, Saef believes that will begin to fade away. “I think we’ll see some erosion in those cutoff dates,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s about what people are willing to pay, and organizers are really trying to find the right price point.”

    Flexible pricing is just one of many trends that may influence the next generation of meetings and events. Click here to download a free copy of the GES Trend Tracker for more insights into what’s on the horizon for planning, strategy, marketing, technology, and design.

    It’s All about Action for our Team in Canada

    It’s been an exciting and eventful past several months for our Canadian team as they prepare for 2017 shows and enter into a key partnership—we’ve been quite busy. It’s all about action here in Canada, and I’m happy to share with you what we’ve been doing.

    First, I’m pleased to announce that GES has been selected by the Shaw Conference Centre as the preferred supplier of exhibit and display services for Edmonton’s premier convention centre. This new, five-year partnership also makes GES the exclusive provider of all dock marshalling and material handling services. We’re honored to be selected. Learn more.

    Along with this key partnership, we’re prepping for several shows in 2017. 2017 Canadian International Autoshow just finished successfully, and we’re gearing up for the rest of our upcoming Toronto events:

    Partners in Prevention 2017 Health & Safety Conference & TradeShow – May 2-3

    Canadian International Real Estate Marketplace – May 16-18

    ‐ STONEX Canada – May 16-18

    CPA’s 35th Annual Conference & Trade Show – June 14

    31st ICM Triennial Congress – June 18-22

    HITEC 2017 Toronto – June 27-29

    I’m thrilled with what our Canadian team has accomplished over the past several months and look forward to what’s ahead!
