Gardner Business Media Selects Convention Data Services as Registration and Lead Management Partner

February 5, 2019

Convention Data Services (CDS) was selected by Gardner Business Media (GBM) to provide registration, lead management and integrations for the Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS) and Amerimold for four years through 2021. Additionally, CDS will provide self-registration for smaller shows, including Extrusion and Additive Manufacturing Conference. GBM is the premier publisher for the heart of manufacturing in North America–providing unique, one-of-a-kind relevant information of keen interest to the people who power plants, shops and factories.

“Gardner evaluated several companies in our quest for a new registration vendor,” said Melissa Kline Skavlem, Chief Marketing Officer, Gardner Business Media. “At the end of the day, the decision to work with CDS was clear. Our decision was made based on our desire to find a platform that could integrate with our other audience tools, our desire to find a sophisticated product that helped us develop and market to our attendees and our desire to find a product with a suite of tools to provide a superior experience for our exhibitors and sponsors. CDS was the right tool to achieve those goals.”

“CDS and GBM have worked together previously on other industry shows such as the International Manufacturing Technology Show and NPE: The Plastics Show,” said David Lawton, Chief Sales Officer at CDS. “We are very excited to begin a partnership with GBM. Our attendee acquisition and lead retrieval products are well-suited to address the GBM strategic goals of increasing event attendance and offering robust solutions to exhibitors.”
