What is AMS Fest?

7+ CAE Credits. Interactive Boot Camps on AMS Selection & Implementation. 22+ Association Management Software Demos. 

If you’re considering a new AMS, implementing one for the first time or just want to stay up to date on what is out there when it comes to association management software, AMS Fest is the place to be.

 The team behind Association TRENDS and CEO Update is excited to bring you face to face with other association executives, consultants, industry partners and AMS vendors that all want to engage in discussions around nothing but association management software.

 Join us this June, in Chicago, IL, where we’ll have 22+ 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.

What’s Included:

Deep-dive pre-conference workshops: Whether you’re interested in learning more about AMS selection, implementation, or both, you’ll earn up to 7 CAE credits in our expert-led bootcamps. Start off learning the secrets to AMS selection and end with a workshop on managing the daunting implementation process.

Selection Cohorts: Arguably one of the most valuable features of AMS Fest. Looking for a new AMS can be a daunting experience but it doesn’t have to be. Our cohorts of association attendees are led by the top selection consultants in the space. You’ll get behind the scenes perspective from cohort leaders and be part of a group that is going through the same AMS selection experience.

Demos of 22 Top Association Management Software Platforms: Save countless hours of scheduling and attending demos. In just two days you and your team can attendee demos to narrow down your list of contenders and spend time meeting with your top AMS platform candidates.

Panel Discussions: We’ll cover the latest on integration technology, hear selection and implementation stories gone wrong and how to avoid them and learn more about getting executive buy-in for implementing a new AMS.

Peer Networking: Enhance your network of like-minded association technology peers during a range of networking opportunities.

We can’t wait to see you in Chicago!

“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 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, ISCG
