“We’re pleased to offer EventMingle for a third year to our conference attendees, exhibitors and faculty,” DMAA President and CEO Tracey Moorhead says. “Our goal is to give our participants the best tools to enhance their experience and build relationships that will last long after the meeting ends. EventMingle helps us do that.”
“We’re very pleased to be working with DMAA again this year to allow more than 1,000 health care business professionals the opportunity to network before arriving to the event in order to facilitate more face-to-face introductions during the event,” says Jim Harrer, Cofounder of EventMingle. “In addition, participants can make appointments with over 90 exhibitors and see which representatives from these companies will be attending this event. By giving everyone advance access to the registration list and making easy for them to network before arriving to the event, we will ensure everyone has a more productive time at this event.”
