Cloud Conventions Virtual Events Can be More Effective at Connecting Buyers & Sellers

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full-featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution delivers an effective means for suppliers to continue to move merchandise by providing better connection to buyers in a content rich virtual environment. Annual or regional tradeshows and industry conferences have traditionally been the primary way suppliers connect to their wholesale marketplace, educating buyers on new products, introducing the latest trends and receiving orders for merchandise for upcoming selling seasons. In a digital environment, Cloud Conventions is improving the overall sales process by better showcasing suppliers and their products, providing increased promotional opportunities and stronger connections with buyers, brokers and distributers in thousands of vertical markets in the U.S. and internationally. “People often perceive that tradeshows are just a getaway to visit a fun venue, connect socially and have a good time,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey Services . “In some ways that can be true, however tradeshows are mission-critical in connecting buyers with suppliers and resellers in a single venue so they can keep their shelves, warehouses and online stores stocked with the latest merchandise. To keep product moving so suppliers can survive and grow in the face of COVID-19, Cloud Conventions offers a more enhanced digital experience delivering higher levels of product information, more interaction and a longer opportunity to connect.” A Cloud Conventions virtual tradeshow gives exhibitors a booth experience filled with opportunities to capture sales leads, attract and reward attendees, interact with live chat or video meetings and offer live or recorded in-booth sessions to showcase their products. Buyers can view new product lines, flip through digital catalogs, meet with designers, fill out requests for pricing, order product samples and receive show promotions and discounts. “Virtual tradeshows can offer significant advantages over live events,” added Bradfield. “The virtual exhibit hall is not restricted to specific hours, allowing attendees to view a booth online and on-demand 24/7. The attendee audience is often much larger because they can attend without the risk and expense of travel or taking time away from the business of selling. This can dramatically increase the number of sales leads from an event. In one of our recent tradeshows, there were 100 virtual booths. During the 3 days of the live show there were over 40,000 attendee interactions with exhibits and sales content. With a virtual event, those interactions can continue for days, weeks or a month or more afterward.” Cloud Conventions virtual booths offer varying levels of features with specialized sponsorship and advertising placements. Exhibitors can purchase banner ads on the homepage, inside the attendee dashboard and on directory pages. Sponsors can showcase themselves with session presentations, host social events like virtual wine tastings and be featured in email communication sent from the event platform. Analytics on Cloud Conventions detail every attendee interaction to validates the ROI for the exhibitor or sponsor. Cloud Conventions is a virtual event SaaS solution from Convey Services .

Cloud Conventions Integrates Virtual Event Platform with Zoom Video Webinar

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution today announced the integration of Zoom Video Webinar to automate scheduling, participant entry into sessions and delivery of meeting data into the platform’s reporting engine. Zoom Video Webinar has become a preference for tradeshow and conference organizers that need to engage a larger audience, deliver more formal presentations or have to validate attendance for continuing education credit (CE, CLE, or CME). Cloud Conventions is a new virtual event SaaS platform from Convey Services. “We have seen a steady demand for video broadcasting solutions that allow greater control than a casual meeting when all cameras and microphones are turned on,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey. “Integration with Zoom Video Webinar enriches the delivery of keynotes, programs with a larger audience or sessions that require the event host to confirm attendance.” Cloud Conventions connects to Zoom Video Webinar through Zoom’s application program interface (API). The event host schedules a session on Cloud Conventions which then automates scheduling on Zoom. When attendees register for a Zoom Video Webinar program, they are automatically registered on Zoom with a meeting link added to their personal calendars on Cloud Conventions. “Associations and trade groups that offer continuing education must adhere to a higher-level of compliance before they can issue certificates for virtual sessions,” added Bradfield. “Because each attendee is given an individual link to attend the session, their identity is confirmed when they enter and exit. After the session is finished, attendees are directed to a speaker evaluation survey on Cloud Conventions to complete CE requirements.” Tradeshow, conference or association meeting organizers are free to select any brand of conferencing to deliver sessions on Cloud Conventions. With the Zoom Video Webinar integration, the experience is seamless and automated for conferencing set up, attendee registration and meeting reports.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Humble, Texas Brings Local Businesses and Community Together During COVID-19

Minuteman Press International

As a local business owner herself, Minuteman Press franchisee Connie Chandler knows how important it is to support local businesses during COVID-19. She says, “We are all dealing with the effects of the pandemic crisis and every dollar that stays local makes a difference and may determine if a business is able to stay afloat.” That is why Connie’s Minuteman Press printing and marketing business has launched Bounce Back Humble , a free community website where local businesses can submit free listings and consumers can take advantage of special offers. Connie has owned the franchise in Humble with her husband Darryal since 2010 and has always put community first over the past ten years. She explains, “All of us are in the same boat, no matter what the industry is. Right now, with COVID-19, people are worried, needs are different, and money is tight for families. Bounce Back Humble is our way of simply providing a free community platform in order to boost businesses in our area. We have over 60 participating businesses and people can visit the Bounce Back Humble website to view special offers and show their support.” The feedback from other local businesses has been overwhelmingly positive. Connie says, “Local owners I spoke with were so happy that someone cared about them. We weren’t selling anything and businesses were thrilled to have a FREE way to get the word out about being open and sharing their specials.” Now more than ever, it is important for the community to come together and lift each other up. Connie adds, “Community members must support local businesses to help our community thrive. Businesses need the support in order to survive. Help and support came in ways other than spending, such as word of mouth, referrals, and promoting each other.” Because printing is an essential business , Minuteman Press in Humble has remained open and operating throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Connie says, “We are helping other businesses, not only by offering the Bounce Back Humble program, but with the products and services we have. In the beginning, many customers, both established and new customers, needed banners and signs. Now, our biggest sellers are face masks and labels.” Connie continues, “Several customers have been doing mailings over the past few weeks using our direct mail design, printing, and delivery capabilities. We have also been making sure to market our various products and services through email marketing and Facebook, which is also beneficial. We continue to let our customers know we can help them with all of their printing and marketing needs.” She concludes, “At the end of the day, we are all in this pandemic together, and Minuteman Press Humble is here to help our community and our fellow local businesses bounce back!” For more information on Minuteman Press in Humble, Texas, visit https://humble.minutemanpress.com .

Minuteman Press in Buffalo Gives Back to Front Line Workers and Supports Local Businesses During COVID-19

Minuteman Press International

With a growing number of more than 70 participating businesses on their free Bounce Back Buffalo initiative, Minuteman Press in Buffalo is helping area business owners mount a resurgence of growth by making sure they remain connected to their own clients with free advertising and access to resources. The Minuteman Press Buffalo website also hosts the Give a Pint to the Front Line charity with options that include custom hoodies, t-shirts and $6 and up virtual pint donations. “We are going to all the participating breweries to purchase the gift cards and are accommodating hospital protocol so we can donate them to our front-line health care workers.” “I have always been about community FIRST,” says Wes Froebel, owner of Minuteman Press in Buffalo which has remained open as an essential business from the beginning. He also expanded his marketing services into two initiatives currently benefiting local business and lifting morale for front-line heath care workers. The first, Bounce Back Buffalo , is a coalition of local business owners spanning a variety of industries hosted by Minuteman Press. “Our Bounce Back program has helped many businesses in Buffalo ranging from non-profits, restaurants, breweries, law agencies, photography companies, and more. It makes us at Minuteman Press Buffalo feel really proud that we are able to support and give back to our community.” Today, as things open up on main street, Wes is observing a rising enthusiasm in his area. “Businesses are reopening and increasing capacity now. We are helping them get their specials out there and easily update their hours of operation for all to see. A lot of our restaurants have begun to take reservations to make sure they are abiding by the need for social distance and use Bounce Back Buffalo to keep their guests informed and conveniently make those reservations. We are taking stress out of as many challenges as we can, helping our business and restaurant owners provide warm, welcoming messages so people are encouraged to shop or enjoy a meal.” "It was great of Minuteman Press Buffalo to provide advertising, discounts to healthcare workers, and free advertising via Bounce Back Buffalo to support our business, our community, and the local economy." Matt Kahn, President, Big Ditch Brewing Company “Participating members of Bounce Back Buffalo gain an SEO benefit as well. We help provide a strong backline to their websites which can boost their search engine rating.” Wes Froebel, owner, Minuteman Press The second spirit-lifting initiative, Give a Pint to the Front Line , directly benefits the tirelessly heroic health care workers while giving a shot in the arm to the breweries intrinsic to the area. It has become a feel-good way for people to join Minuteman Press in generosity towards their neighbors and future. More are coming in every day, enthusiastically donating to the cause. Wes is gratified by the enormous response: “I lead with community first because I am aware of people’s struggles and know we are in a position to help. When COVID-19 hit, and our breweries, restaurants and small business owners were closed, I understood their struggle at the same time that I admired the healthcare workers putting themselves at risk on behalf of all of us.” “I got the idea to establish a way for people to donate gift cards from participating craft breweries that we will deliver to health care workers who can take their pints to go; or they can choose to await the full reopening of bars and breweries. It supports the front-line workers and encourages more buying within our local economy,” he adds. People are discovering Give a Pint to the Front Line through Minuteman Press social media and email blasts, but also because it is becoming the talk of the town. “I had one person, Thom, contact me when he heard about us online. He wanted to combine his own donation, specially designed glasses that said, Buffalo Craft Beer Over Covid , which he used to raise $1,540 to contribute to our cause.” “Wes is a good guy and it is clear he wants to be involved and do good things for the community. I wanted to give back also and as I came up with my idea for the custom glass, I heard about this charity by Minuteman Press doing something cool on Facebook where you can buy beer for hospital workers. Instead of a straight donation, I contacted Wes and now he’s doing the legwork collecting the funds and distributing the gift cards”, Thom says. He adds, “I want to raise visibility for what he’s doing. I would like to see people go straight to Minuteman Press and get active in this program.” Wes remains dedicated to community first and his efforts are invigorating the area. “Our purpose is to help our own economy get back to normal and grow. We want everyone to be healthy, working, and spending money as we return to new pursuits and enjoying life.” For more information on Minuteman Press Buffalo, visit https://buffalo21.minutemanpress.com .

Cloud Conventions Creates Dedicated Team to Support Virtual Events for Associations & Nonprofits

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions , a full featured virtual tradeshow and event technology solution now has a dedicated team of event managers to support virtual events and conferences for professional associations and nonprofits. Members of the new group have hands-on experience in working with associations, nonprofits and management firms to translate formerly live conferences into virtual events using the Cloud Conventions platform. “Our goal is to show association managers that taking a live conference and making it virtual still supports their membership and benefits their sponsors,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey . “In many ways, virtual events not only satisfy the goals of associations and trade groups but exceed them in ways that live events can’t. The Cloud Conventions platform engages members while drawing a larger audience who don’t need to travel to participate. This delivers more revenue to the organization and better ROI to exhibitors and sponsors.” For associations, virtual events have significant advantages, with higher levels of engagement between exhibitors and members. Attendees now have the option to: Attend without the risk or expense of travel. Attend sessions live or watch recorded speakers or panel discussions online. Explore content from exhibitors and sponsors on-demand, not just during exhibit hours. Allow more people in their organization to take advantage of the conference. Receive continuing education credit without missing other parts of the event program. Network and interact with association members through social events and forums. “Associations and trade groups often fund their entire annual budget from revenue generated by exhibitor commitments or sponsorships along with registration fees,” added Bradfield. “Exhibitors and sponsors generate a larger number of sales leads as attendees interact inside the booth. There are more calls to action, since attendees can request meetings, attend demos or collect more information. Our new team helps association managers understand the benefits of a virtual event and provides support to maximize the capabilities of a Cloud Conventions virtual event.” Doctors, nurses, lawyers, engineers, CPAs, financial advisers, real estate and other professionals are required to prove participation in continuing education programs every year in order to maintain their Continuing Education (CE), Continuing Legal Education (CLE) or Continuing Medical Education (CME) certificates or licenses. Many of these professionals obtained credits during live association conferences. Now they can earn them during a virtual conference or tradeshow. Cloud Conventions automates session management, allows the use of any conferencing solution, produces the post-session speaker evaluation and can deliver a continuing education certificate to the dashboard of qualifying attendees. The platform is now fully integrated with Zoom Webinar for attendee tracking and CE compliance. Cloud Conventions has a unique ‘Hub & Spoke™’ content delivery model that supports associations and trade groups who manage multiple events. The association can maintain one centralized hub site for exhibitors to add educational and marketing assets and duplicate their virtual booths to multiple regional event portals. This gains efficiency and saves time for the association, as well as the exhibitor. Pre-designed booth templates standardize the look and feel of every show, providing a consistent attendee experience and simplifying exhibitor management. Cloud Conventions is designed for the non-technical user who doesn’t have HTML skills or technology training. Marketing administrators or event managers can easily navigate the platform.

Local Firm Capitalizes on Growing Demand for Virtual Events & Tradeshows As COVID-19 Changes The Face Of Business

Convey Services

Local technology firm, Convey Services discovered a huge new market for their online portal solutions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today the Cloud Conventions business is growing rapidly, delivering virtual events in dozens of different markets around the world. “In the early 90s I co-founded a company in West Point, Georgia that completely reinvented the conference calling industry,” said Carolyn Bradfield , founder of Convey. “It changed how we communicated with remote teams and eliminated unnecessary travel to engage with sales groups and customers. Today, in the face of COVID, nearly every tradeshow, industry event, live sales meeting, association and trade group gathering has cancelled in 2020 and many already into next year. Even when live events return, they will never be the same as before the pandemic. Our new Cloud Conventions virtual event platform can replace a live conference and offer many advantages over live events. They better educate, provide on demand content, allow companies to exhibit and interact with attendees, while having fun.” “I expect when live events return they will not be nearly as large, or as integral to doing business as they had been,” added Bradfield. “In the future, most live events will include a virtual component that will engage individuals who choose not to travel to attend in-person. Cloud Conventions is a sophisticated platform for exhibitors and sponsors to get their product and services message in the hands of conference attendee and achieve a stronger ROI.” Cloud Conventions is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that automates exhibitors and virtual booths, manages attendee registration, organizes speaker sessions and reminders, manages email communication, while at the same time producing detailed analytics on all activity.

Minuteman Press International CEO Bob Titus Inducted into Printing Impressions - RIT Printing Industry Hall of Fame Class of 2020

Minuteman Press International

In 1973, Bob Titus founded Minuteman Press with his father Roy. What started as one quick printing center in Plainview, Long Island, has grown into nearly 1,000 Minuteman Press franchises across five countries today. After 47 years of hard work and dedication to the printing industry and Minuteman Press franchisees, Titus, who remains CEO of Minuteman Press International, has been inducted into the Printing Impressions/RIT Printing Industry Hall of Fame Class of 2020. In the feature article published by Printing Impressions , Bob Titus remains humble and gives credit to everyone who helped make the Minuteman Press franchise system a success. He is quoted as saying, “I’ve been in this industry a long time, but if we didn’t have the staff and the franchise owners that we have, we wouldn’t be talking. They all made this happen. It’s our ideas and our system, and we guide them and push them through it, but it’s them being receptive to what we suggest and how they run their businesses that makes this a success.” The article chronicles the entire journey of Bob Titus as the leader of Minuteman Press International with one common thread that is readily apparent after all this time: No matter how much the business has grown, it remains a family business with strong core values. Many of Bob’s friends who helped Minuteman Press get off the ground remain an integral part of the team today, and his son Nick Titus is now the Company’s third-generation President. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Bob’s guidance as CEO and Nick’s leadership as President has allowed Minuteman Press International to continue to adapt and support its franchisees worldwide. For example, they have introduced a free Bounce Back initiative in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and South Africa that provides local businesses with free listings and free COVID-19 awareness posters. They also quickly and efficiently transitioned their training program to Zoom to allow for virtual training as needed. In the article, Bob reflects on his career and his 2020 Printing Impressions/RIT Printing Industry Hall of Fame induction, concluding, “I’m proud of our store owners and our staff — they make us what we are. It’s not one person making this happen, it’s the whole team working together.” To read the full story on Bob Titus’ induction into the 2020 Printing Impressions - RIT Printing Industry Hall of Fame Class, visit https://www.piworld.com/article/hall-fame-inductee-bob-titus .
