eventPower client—The Logistics Officer Association (LOA) Symposium offers the premier event dedicated to enabling interactive exchanges among logistics, acquisition and technology professionals from across the Department of Defense, defense industry and academia.

LOA discovered eventPower through a member of their association. The member was already working with eventPower on another event and highly recommended eventPower because of how they partnered with them and identified their needs. LOA needed to rethink their business model in order to continue hosting their Symposium and eventPower jumped in and helped them in making their Symposium a successful and profitable event.

Having worked with eventPower for six years, LOA attests to eventPower being a true partner. “eventPower’s background as meeting planners themselves creates a natural working relationship,” said Jondavid DuVall, LOA Chief Operating Officer. “eventPower has become an extension of our organization when we work together and we truly consider them a teammate and advisor rather than a vendor.” According to LOA, additional factors that make eventPower unique to work with include their background in event planning for the government and military community, their proprietary tools including registration and speaker management that create efficiencies, and their exhibitor and sponsor re-sign ability, with an average of 90% resigning. With eventPower, LOA gets a whole team of meeting planners who understand how to produce a meaningful, efficient and profitable event.

“I had the pleasure of meeting eventPower in 2015. After seeing a demonstration of their speaker portal software, I was hooked! As an association planner, we have a large call for speakers with sizable groups of volunteers who handle the review process. After utilizing eventPower’s software for our speaker portal section, it quickly became evident that we could make solid use of eventPower’s other services, such as website management and registration management. Both would make great additions to our events. Between the software tools and eventPower’s team, it has been a great partnership. Their staff and leadership are flexible, helpful and knowledgeable. Their partnership is key to making our events a success!”
