As 2020 forced changes in the way we all run events, our clients have had to step up and meet the challenge.
And we have been here to help, every step of the way. No matter what kind of event our clients need to host, from in-person meetings or certification exam space and proctoring to conferences in a hybrid format to events held fully online, we've been ready to help make sure each event is a success. But don't just take it from us! Hear from some of our recent clients who changed their events in response to the pandemic and had the staff at the Thompson Conference Center to assist.
Elsa M Paynes was the event point of contact for the ASBOG certification exam. With safety precautions in place, her event was successful and garnered great feedback from her participants. She chalks this up in part to good communication ahead of time, so her attendees knew what to expect.
Javier Motta-Mena, Interim Manager of Engineering Professional Development Programs at The University of Texas at Austin's Texas Engineering Executive Education, was planning to host an in-person event at the Thompson Conference Center in the summer of 2020, and canceling was not an option. Neither was a postponement since it’s so hard to give an accurate idea of a new date. So, he moved online with the assistance of the team at TCC.
With the members of UT's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute considered one of the demographics most at risk from coronavirus, the program coordinators had to quickly transition their in-person program to a virtual environment. "The Thompson Conference Center has taken the worry out of virtual events," director Julie Martenson shared after entering the second session of hosting the program online.
