NAPAHE had an excellent experience working with Western's Conference Services team to present our 2021 national conference. The pre-planning and registration process were seamless, and the team was amazing with tech support leading up to and during the conference. NAPAHE is so appreciative for Conference Services playing such a major role in the success of our virtual conference.

NAPAHE partnered with Western Washington University for our 2021 virtual conference. Western utilized the Accelevents event platform and managed our registration process. Conference attendees reported high satisfaction with the registration process and commented that it was much smoother than in years’ past. With that, NAPAHE is considering using Western to help with the registration process for future conferences.

Western's Conference Services' expertise in virtual event coordination and planning was essential in adapting our annual in-person advocacy event into a virtual format. Their insight and experience from planning other virtual events allowed for our event to move forward seamlessly, while also expanding the number of participants. By coordinating of the technical aspects of high-level meetings with federal officials and congressional staff, Western ensured we were able to have effective and productive meetings while navigating a new virtual space. Western's support took away the fear of technical issues impacting our event by coordinating and managing the behind-the-scenes logistics of bringing dozens of speakers and presenters together with over a hundred participants and providing live support during the event. All of this allowed us as event organizers to focus on the other critical components of the event. The team at Western provided personalized support and recommendations for our event and worked to ensure we achieved the event we envisioned. Whether your first virtual event (like it was for us) or your tenth, Western can provide the experience to ensure the perfect event.
