CEM Course: Housing and Registration Management

Date: Tuesday, July 22
Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Freeman A/V Office
4545 W. Davis Street
Dallas, TX 75211

Additional services provided to exhibition attendees and exhibitors by the
exhibition CEMmanager require an understanding of the needs of the guests as well as a working knowledge of hotel operations. Two of the service elements intrinsic to most events today are arranging for accommodations of guests and identifying which guests will be allowed access to which portion of the event. Regardless of how these services will be delivered, planning must begin early to ensure that housing and registration are easily accessed and do not become a hindrance to attending the event.

After completing this module the student should be able to:

  • List key information needed before planning how to manage registration and housing
  • Discuss several criteria to consider when deciding whether to obtain housing and registration from a single provider
  • Be conversant with the terminology used by housing and registration service providers
  • Identify the various housing and registration options for an event
  • Create a timeline with benchmarks for housing and registration planning
  • Identify the five essential elements in a legal contract 
  • Describe various ways to promote a housing program
  • Recognize how registration and housing providers charge for services.
Price: $250 for members
$385 for non-members
