Convention Data Services (CDS), a provider of registration and lead management services, and Stone Fort Group, acting on behalf of Automotive Service Association (ASA), signed a three-year deal.
Under the agreement, CDS will provide registration and lead management services for 2014 NACE|CARS, a tradeshow filled with the latest products and services from vendors committed to supporting the automotive industry and key networking opportunities.
“We are pleased to announce this new partnership with Stone Fort Group. Our CDS team is looking forward to the opportunity of working with them and providing innovative technology and top-notch customer service for the NACE|CARS event,” said David Lawton, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Convention Data Services.
Stone Fort Group is a digital and live event media startup serving niche communities in the industrial B2B marketplace. Co-founders Sean Guerre and Brian Nessen have extensive tradeshow and conference experience.
“Our team is excited to be involved with ASA and NACE|CARS,” said Nessen, principal, Stone Fort Group. “However, the 2014 event brought the challenges of a new show location in Detroit and a new date, three months earlier than in previous years. With the shorter, nine-month turnaround, we needed a partner who could move quickly while dealing with multiple co-located events. CDS responded with the necessary solutions, technology and customer service.”
