Interact with attendees using the latest tools to build loyalty.

Personalize every attendee’s experience and reach them on any platform. We combine your attendee data with industry leading technology to deliver feature rich and memorable interactions that get each member of your audience fully engaged in your event.

While registration provides the data foundation for all of our products, it is only the starting point of CDS’ comprehensive event management solutions.


Keep your education on track.

Education is a huge component of most events and the primary reason many attend.  CDS’ educational tools streamline the entire process from initial registration through full onsite support.  You can actively manage and track session participation in real-time while providing hands-free confirmation and certification after the fact.

  • Session Tracking/Access Control – Control access to sessions and accurately track participation anywhere onsite. The mobile handheld unit works in real-time or with a preloaded list and allows new participants to be added on the fly.
  • CME/CEU Certification – Register, track and verify your continuing education initiatives. The simple and accurate self-serve system allows attendees to print their certificates onsite or anywhere they are online.
  • Webinars and Videos – While not part of your educational program, we do all we can to ensure your audience gets the most out of our products and services as well as your event. Our webinars and engaging product videos are available online and linked from all the places your audience frequents.


Make meaningful connections and build your network.

Connecting with people and information is the primary mission of both attendees and exhibitors onsite.  CDS provides the tools to help your audience discover, locate and create the right connections.

  • Digital Exhibit Tracker – Keep attendees interacting with exhibitors after they meet onsite with a personalized rundown of their exhibit hall interactions.

  • SendIt!Increase your exhibitors’ ROI at your event with SendIt!, our easy-to-use email campaign system. Exhibitors can send multiple promotional email campaigns to targeted pre-registered attendees, increasing their sales while also boosting your floor traffic. SendIt! provides exhibitors with options for building emails with HTML, a drag-and-drop builder, or even using pre-made templates with your event’s branding. You can easily manage dates and frequency of their campaigns to coordinate with your event communications. 
  • Digital Backpack – Digital Backpack is a sustainable, cost-effective, and data-rich lead generation solution that simplifies content sharing for exhibitors and event organizers.

    Instead of printing and shipping costly marketing materials, exhibitors can use Digital Backpack to create QR codes that link to their digital content, such as brochures, product demos, or videos. Attendees simply scan these QR codes with their smartphones to access the content, and their contact and demographic information is automatically sent to the exhibitor as a new lead. By eliminating the need to distribute print materials, Digital Backpack transforms content sharing into a sustainable event solution.

    In addition to sustainability benefits, Digital Backpack harnesses the power of data to enhance lead generation by connecting content to registrant data. Exhibitors won’t know every potential lead who picked up their print materials, but with Digital Backpack they will. This gives them a clear understanding of their audience, enabling them to target specific segments based on product interest.

    The Digital Backpack Exhibit Tracker also allows attendees to keep track and share with their buying teams the exhibits they’ve visited throughout the show floor.
