Pros: Their products are all interconnected and allow us to make a single change and push out to our various mediums (app, signage, speaker portal, program, exhibits portal, etc)

Cons: The software is event specific and we have an events center in addition to the annual conference. Ideally, for our organization, it would be great to have this feature.

Overall: Time savings!

Comments: This is our first conference using CadmiumCD and we had a wonderful experience! Using CadmiumCD, along with the support and assistance from their team members, we could effectively manage the conference in the user-friendly system. CadmiumCD provided us one-platform to collect and review abstracts along with gathering presenter and poster presenter information. All the information easily migrated into the online program and mobile app. We received rave reviews from our conference participants who mentioned they LOVED the mobile app and the ability to take notes on the presentations and posters. We look forward to collaborating with them next year for our conference!

Pros: Very user friendly.

Cons: Needs a bit more instruction to understand how to use it. The scorecard method of communication was a bit unwieldy for the small size of our project.

Overall: We had an excellent experience working with CadmiumCD on a tight time schedule. The support staff and training was exceptional. Moving to an all digital submission and judging process allowed for great ease in reviewing and judging. Also, the CadmiumCD fee collection was seamless. We will definitely continue to work with CadmiumCD for our future design awards. The staff support is excellent. We were assigned a very thorough and helpful project manager. Our experience exceeded our expectations.

Comments: I manage exhibit and sponsorship sales for a small non-profit association, and before we discovered Cadmium I was juggling everything manually. The Exhibitor Harvester has been a dream! Setting up our event and submitting boomerangs were very easy to learn, and working with Jen Rice has been so pleasant.

Once things picked up for our Annual Meeting it was so convenient to have a user-friendly live floor plan and payment process for interested exhibitors to use, with minimal contact with me. It allowed me more time for juggling other time sensitive and sales tasks and preparing for our event. We experienced little to no issues with the software, and our exhibitors seem satisfied. I highly recommend Cadmium's exhibitor software to interested associations or companies.

Pros: Flexibility and ability to make changes on our own.

Cons: The list of reports/worksheets on the back end isn't often cleaned up and it can be hard to sift through it all to find what you are looking for.

Overall: We've been using Cadmium CD's products for over 10 years. I work directly with the owner, in addition to other staff members and everyone is very quick to respond and helpful. Over the years, Cadmium has been excellent about listening to our needs and making tweaks/enhancements based on our needs. We have been very happy working with Cadmium.

Overall: CadmiumCD has proven to be a great partner for us in planning our annual conference and regional events. They are a supportive and flexible vendor, with an intuitive product which integrates with our CMS and registration system nicely. The developers are always working on enhancements and new features, and they bring clients into the conversation to assess needs and how their product can address those needs. The toughest part of the relationship is keeping up with all of the new features! There's no shortage of development and innovation with this event management solution.

Thanks for the kind words, Leslie! We are always excited to role out new features to clients and have a monthly webinar to address these, as well as an annual users conference. As much as we're working to improve our software, we're also constantly improving our processes. Thank you and the rest of the NAFSA team for being such a valued partner!

Comments: Cadmium CD allows us to have one spot to collect and edit a lot of data: abstracts, speaker and presentation information and exhibitor information. All of it then feeds into our online program (Itinerary Planner) and mobile app. Our speakers and exhibitors have nothing but positive comments about their user experience.

They are always taking suggestions for improvements and really listen to your needs. It has been a wonderful experience partnering with them and as a bonus we have saved time and money!

Comments: Cadmium has been our sole conference proceedings provider for the past 13 years. Over the years, Cadmium has provided more easy to use processes that makes our job efficient. I have never had a speaker complain about the "Harvest" system. Harvester is user-friendly. The Cadmium staff are great to work with and they are always there to assist you. I've worked with several Cadmium employees, and they are top-notch! Keep up the great work!

Comments: I started working with CadmiumCD five years ago. It was one of the best professional decisions I have made. We started with capturing content and have grown our relationship with Cadmium to include our abstract submission management, speaker and presentation management, gala seating, exhibit sales, interactive exhibit floor planning, convention website, and mobile apps for our convention and four smaller events. Every stakeholder has only positive feedback. The CadmiumCD team is easy to work with and responsive but even better - they are open to suggestions for improvement. They never stop innovating. When I am asked to provide a reference for CadmiumCD, my standard response is "Hire Them. You Won't Regret It."

Comments: It's true, we are in the cheering section behind the products at CadmiumCD! I have now used the eventscribe app for several courses and really have nothing but great things to say about it. Our attendees were a little apprehensive about switching from paper to electronic but once they started navigating and using the app they had positive feedback.

I also really like the Survey Magnet. It works similar to Survey Monkey but I find the reporting a little better with the Magnet. We distribute CE Certificates based on completing the survey which Cadmium handles as well. It's one stop shopping for us!

Comments: Cadmium is the best conference management software I have used - and I have gone through a variety of vendors. The interface is beautiful, the system is easy to use, and the customer service is the best I have ever received. Above all, I appreciate that feedback is taken to heart and Cadmium is usually already working on something to improve the system before I even have a chance to make a recommendation. Keep it up!

Comments: Cadmium has brought NAGC into the 21st century with their leading-edge technology and superb customer service and support. Cadmium¿s powerful platforms are able to accommodate and organize our annual Convention that includes 800+ submissions, 300+ sessions and 400+ speakers. The proposal submitters, reviewers, presenters, and convention attendees LOVE the system since it¿s easy to use, visually appealing, and not cumbersome. From the start, we have received tons of positive feedback and people continually thank me for changing to this new system. Another great aspect of Cadmium is that they are continually improving and upgrading their platforms to make them even more user-friendly and expand their capabilities in response to their clients¿ needs. They hold instructive monthly webinars to share these updates and to empower administrators to be able to do as much on their own as possible while knowing that they have 100% backup.
