"...effortless ability to exhibit, attend, speak or host online..." ????
Who are they kidding? Using their system has been _anything_ but
effortless, as so many on this list have already attested...

A message from Dr. Lou Lipschultz, founder of LetsGoExpo:

I wanted to take a moment to bring all manufacturers and vendors in our
unique industry up to speed with the CSUN conference, and the role
LetsGoExpo is playing in the event.

As you may know, CSUN is one of the oldest and largest events of its
kind. Last year the conference administration contracted a vendor to
supply them with an accessible web-based conference management
application. That vendor failed to supply the appropriate modifications
to their current application to make it Section 508 compliant, and
enhance its overall usability, and CSUN administration was unfortunately
forced to search for an accessible conference management solution -
which was essentially not available. Late in 2006 the CSUN
administration approached LetsGoExpo knowing that our online meetings
and web-based events were fully accessible. LetsGoExpo was very
fortunate to be chosen to develop this application to accommodate the
needs of this year's and hopefully future CSUN meetings.

This of course was a significant undertaking, as we did not have an
"onsite" conference management system in our development pipeline.
Fortunately, our development team was ready for the task, and we
successfully launched the first components of an onsite Conference
Registration Management System. On January 26th, the general attendee
registration module was launched. This has also generated significant
improvements in our online event management systems as well.

The new system includes an exhibitor and exhibit hall management system,
speaker registration (including call for speakers, course submissions
etc), scheduling system (for room assignments), attendee registration,
as well as many other administrative tools. Our most unique feature is
the effortless ability to exhibit, attend, speak or host online, onsite,
or integrated online AND onsite events.

My personal goal is to make the LetsGoExpo system a key resource for
onsite as well as online event management to our industry. As such,
please contact me personally or through the LetsGoExpo feedback system
with any feedback you may have.

Best personal regards,
