In 2013, Expo Logic started delivering top-rated services for their credit tracking and lead retrieval needs. For two years, Expo Logic sat nearby while NAPNAP managed their on-site registration desk with very labor intensive processes and very long lines. When we approached Laura Nelsen in 2014, and said that we had a registration technology that could eliminate the long lines and labor intensive processes, she had doubts that this was possible. Their registration experience in 2014 was their "breaking point", and they knew they had to make a change.
Having an established partnership with us, NAPNAP requested our registration services for their 2015 conference. "They were so experienced in all aspects of the planning process. They kept everything on timeline and knew just how many (ExpressPass™) terminals and how much badge stock we would need. When we arrived on-site, we told our general services contractor that we would not be needing stanchions. Within 24 hours, he joined us all as true believers of the power of Expo Logic's badge[on]demand™ technology" explained Laura Nelsen. "There were never any lines! Participants found the kiosks easy to use. Our staff was freed up at the registration desk to help with questions and greet attendees. badge[on]demand™ made it easy to create tickets for events that required pre-registration, and it integrated so well with our association management system. We even had leaders from larger organizations in attendance that approached us to ask for Expo Logic's contact information. Thank you, Expo Logic, for bringing our event's attendee experience to the next level".

We would like to thank the NAPNAP team for their continued support. We are thrilled to continue to work with the organization!

NSA is a member of the Global Speakers Federation (GSF), a global network dedicated to advancing the speaking profession worldwide.
Their 2014 conference was held in San Diego, California and they were in need of a better more efficient way to do registration. Expo Logic's badge[on]demand allowed NSA to manage all their registrants and badge printing directly out of their AMS (Association Management Software), netFORUM by Abila. This was NSA's first time using the badge[on]demand product and ExpressPass™ check-in stations.
Our on-site Expo Logic staff member, Patrick has a wonderful personality, was easy going, not frazzled by the rush, and was well liked by all of our staff and members. He went way beyond his responsibilities and even assisted me when we needed a little extra muscle to move tables, boxes, etc.
Patrick is truly a valuable asset to Expo Logic and I will highly recommend Patrick and your company whenever I have the opportunity."- William L. Peterson, Director of Finance and Administration at NSA
Thank you to the entire NSA 2014 team for allowing us to be a part of such a wonderful event, we look forward to working together again.

Expo Logic provided registration and on-site check-in ExpressPass™ stations for The Entrepreneur's Organization East Coast Regional Conference, NERVE 2014. The attendees were thrilled with the speedy check-in process and the station's ease of use.
"Words cannot thank you enough for your time, energy and willingness to jump in so professionally throughout the NERVE process!
It has been a tireless road over the past countless month prepping - but the event was a huge success in large part to the team behind the efforts. So much of the praise needs to be shared with you for all that you have done, and your team behind the scenes making sure all registration details were accounted for. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!"- Katie Baer, NERVE 2014 Event Manager

NSBE needed a registration system that would integrate with their association management software IMPak Enterprise. Our badge[on]demand™ product was just the item they needed, it allowed NSBE to keep all registration information in their system while being able to print badges directly from each individual attendees record. Expo Logic's ExpressPass™ check-in stations were used on site to allow for a quick and speedy check-in process.
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your efforts in making our registration process run smoothly. We received so many compliments on registration, so our members had a very positive experience. I personally could not have been more thrilled with self-registration (plus,Victor and Mark were tremendously helpful with absolutely everything). I'm looking forward to working with you in the future--your team is absolutely delightful, as is your product."-Nicole M. Yates, Director of Membership
We would like to thank NSBE for allowing us to be a part of their shows success, we look forward to working together again.
The Christian Book Association held their annual International Christian Retail show this past July in Orlando, Florida. ICRS 2012 provides attendees with "an exhibit floor with hundreds of worldwide suppliers for Christian products, and exposure to the whole industry, new concepts and trends, a global vision, cutting-edge training concepts, merchandising ideas and much more.”
Expo Logic was excited to provide online and on-site registration, ExpressPass™ check-in, and lead retrieval services to ICRS for the 2nd year. With a high volume of attendees and exhibitors, the ExpressPass™ self-check-in service made the badge printing on-site process a breeze, causing attendees to wonder why we even put stanchions up to handle the non-existent lines.
We would like to thank the Christian Book Association for allowing us to be a part of their show’s success. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2013 in St. Louis!
The Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles’ Annual Las Vegas Convention was held September 6-9. CAALA Vegas is the “largest convention of trial attorneys in the nation. It features three and a half days of educational sessions presented by the nation’s most accomplished trial lawyers, jurists and legal consultants.” (More on CAALA Vegas can be viewed on their event website)
CAALA started using Expo Logic’s badge[on]demand product in April 2012, allowing them to manage all registrations and badge prints directly out of their AMS, netFORUM by Avectra. This was CAALA’s second show using Expo Logic’s badge[on]demand and ExpressPass™ check-in, but the first with a large number of attendees and exhibitors.
“Using the badge[on]demand™ system on Saturday was phenomenal. We had about 75 to 80 percent of our attendees bring their confirmation so they were able to scan and get their badge. We had people bring paper, cell phone, iPads, big print, little print, a little bit of everything.” Said Bill Smith of CAALA, after their first event in April. “I was really stressing out about Saturday because I knew it was sink or swim and every one of us were absolutely thrilled with how well it worked.”
As a staff, we at Expo Logic could not be happier to join in CAALA’s accomplishments. See you at the next meeting!
The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) holds an annual conference, which is the world’s largest gathering of international eye and vision researchers. With over 12,000 attendees, ARVO needed a registration and badge printing option that would move registrants through the registration process on-site quickly and efficiently with as little wait time as possible.
We suggested our exclusive badge[on]demand™ and ExpressPass™ solutions to allow easy registration and badge printing on-site. Badge[on]demand™ allowed on-site registrations to be entered directly into their familiar AMS, avoiding having to train their staff on new software. It also permitted for quick badge edits, allowing ARVO to make any necessary edits directly in their AMS. ExpressPass™ ensured that pre-registered attendees could print their badge on-site too. A barcoded confirmation was sent to attendees, which was scanned at the ExpressPass™ kiosk. Confirmations were easily scanned from a printed paper or directly on a mobile device. If the confirmation email could not be located, any attendee could still find their registration in the system and print their badge through the ExpressPass™ simple search tool.
Using ExpressPass™, ARVO was able to process 1,200 registrants per hour. The line for badge printing for over 12,000 attendees was constantly moving, so no one was held up for a long period of time. AVRO was able to process registrations and badge prints onsite quickly and efficiently which set a great tone for the entire event.
