A Unified Platform – For Attendees, Exhibitors, and More! 

For organizations and associations wanting to streamline the registration process for all their registration types, a unified process is the first step in the process. Registration Services offer individuals a one-stop shop where they can register, book hotels, and modify records directly on the organization’s custom website. This process is customized to the rules of the event and provides automated confirmation at the completion of their booking or modification. Bulk registrations can also be completed by a single user within a group registration process. The group registration is also customized to the event and business rules. User experience can vary from a “round robin, single pay” style experience to a single flow where multiple names and registrations can be purchased at once. Registrations can be created and imported via an API connected to other systems. The process for group registration includes an Exhibitor Management Console (EMC) designed for exhibitors or specialty group registrations that are managed by one contact and offer custom details specific to groups and exhibitor needs. The Registration Services system would connect to the remote system through API using MCI’s DataHub, a centralized integration engine. Customization is everything to the registration services offered to clients, and the entire process, from pre-production to post, should be tailored to the organization’s specific needs and wants. 

The Details Should Matter. An all-encompassing registration application should adapt to the organization’s most complicated business rules. It should program and adjust itsfully mobile responsiveregistration flow to the event’s specific needs for all registration types. Experience-driven features include eligible discounts able to be added, sharing data with third-party systems, almost unlimited registration types/session types/categories/promo codes/pricing tiers/sessions/ merchandise/etc., virtual badges, and survey questions. Registration services should and will offer clients a registration websitethat ismobileresponsive, carrythe look and feel of their branded home or eventwebsite , and links seamlessly toother websites of ASCO’s choice.With registration services, immediate email confirmations are generated upon payment confirmation, andattendees can self-manage modifications and cancelations. 

The Importance of a Dedicated Registration Service 

From the perspective of an event attendee, registration can be difficult. There are many factors in securing one’s place at a conference, and user experience is everything to your potential attendees and exhibitors. Customer service not only affects the onsite experience but translates to every aspect of pre-conference as well.  Having a dedicated registration service provider can eliminate a lot of the nuances consumers face when registering or attending an event.

Advantages that Span from Pre to Post-Production 

A top advantage of a streamlined process for registration many organizations depend on is the ability to take advantage of the custom unified platform that can be fully integrated with the Housing Service web application and a robust reporting platform.
