Here's what clients are saying!
As a non-profit society representing public education, it is important that we employ only the best professionals with a high degree of integrity to support the work of the Association, and Stephen Ing at ConferenceDirect is exemplary in this regard. The BCSSA has used Stephen’s services for many years now and thanks to his diligence, business acumen, conscientiousness, and negotiating skills, our Association has experienced only the finest in conference and hotel service. As a recently appointed Executive Director who does not work in the industry, I appreciate Stephen’s responsiveness and knowledge of the industry. He has gone above and beyond on many occasions to ensure that our Association is well protected in terms of contracts and conditions and when necessary, he has “gone to bat” for us when concerns have arisen. It has been a true pleasure working with him and I would highly recommend him and his team for anyone wishing to support a high quality event.

Resourcing an ideal conference venue is time consuming and also not necessarily a cost-effective use of our time. Researching cities and appropriate venues, drafting and disseminating rfp’s, accumulating and comparing responses is a long and detailed process. Acting as my one point of contact, Stephen has saved me time and simplified the entire venue selection process!

Since day one, Stephen has been diligent in representing my organization, seeing to CIM’s best interests and setting up the business model in a way that allows me to dedicate my time to other strategic activities. His expertise and professionalism meet my high standards and we are most satisfied with the relationship we enjoy – one of transparency and trust.
