Association TRENDS is excited to bring you face to face (finally!) with other association executives, consultants, industry partners and AMS vendors that all want to engage in discussions around nothing but AMS (Association Management System).
Join us this June, in Chicago, IL where we’ll have 20+ AMS companies ready to demo their platform, consultants to help guide you during your experience to ensure you’re meeting with companies that best fit your organization’s needs, and industry partners to showcase their newest innovative technologies to integrate within your system.
NEW THIS SUMMER- Early Bird Pricing: We want to make sure organizations of any budget can take part in AMS Fest so we’re introducing two rounds of early bird pricing. The first round ends on March 1st, so grab your super discounted ticket below!
NEW THIS SUMMER- Longer Demos: The #1 request we get from attendees is to make the AMS demos longer. Ask and you shall receive! We’ve added 10 extra minutes to each demo slot.
NEW THIS SUMMER- Speed Networking: Every year we hear, “we want more networking” and there’s no better way to kick off day one with our version of speed networking.
NEW THIS SUMMER- Hot Tech Topics: We’re adding bite size hot topic sessions during lunch to make sure you’re up-to-date on the latest trends in association technology.
NEW THIS SUMMER- Festival Style Side Stage: Now you’ll have even more time to connect with potential AMS platforms when you visit their designated side stage areas during the event.
BACK THIS SUMMER- Cohorts: Looking for a new AMS can be a daunting experience but it doesn’t have to be. This summer we’re pleased to continue cohorts! A few weeks before AMS Fest begins, you’ll be assigned (if you’d like to be included) into a group cohort of similar association executives. You’ll have a consultant as your team lead and an online meeting space where you can meet with your cohort before, during, and after the event to trade notes, ask questions, and feel better prepared for your time at AMS Fest.
BACK THIS SUMMER- Two Boot Camp Options: Feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to start when it comes to shopping for an AMS? Or, let’s say you choose one- what are the next steps? What is implementation really like? This summer we are excited to have TWO boot camps at AMS Fest that will leave you feeling prepared and ready to tackle AMS Fest.
Event Safety Guidelines: Your safety and health are our top priority, and we will be requiring proof of vaccination at this year’s event. Association TRENDS will follow all CDC guidelines and mask guidelines will be determined by local mandates at the time of the event. Upon arrival attendees will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and will have their temperature checked.

“Very valuable to get an overall view of AMS provider philosophy and positioning, as well as deep dive in one-on-one conversations. The engaging format fosters interactions. In the two days of the AMS Fest, I was able to establish a short-list of “best-fit” providers, identify areas needing investigation, and connect with leaders of these organizations. Well done.”- Kevin Baliozian, Medical Library Association
“This conference came at exactly the right time, allowing me to get my toes wet in the world of AMS before embarking on an overhaul next year. I got a ton out of it and appreciated the face-to-face (virtual) conversations we could have and the fun of the app itself.” – Amy Gotwals, National Assn of AAAs
“AMS Fest is awesome and totally worth it, the quality of attendees and the sessions was very high, and the atmosphere and venue was great! We will be sponsoring and attending all foreseeable future AMS Fests!”– Rob Banwar, NimbleAMS
“AMS Fest offers a great opportunity to learn from experts and peers about how to successfully select, implement, and maintain an AMS. No other event provides such a wealth of AMS-specific information.”- Jim Friedman, ISCGI
